Ascent Trip Report

Snow ice on top dry in the up section on the range trail, views being reclaimed by the trees , quickly becoming veiwless,

surprized by the stupidy of pepole, the dec made it clear their was bad conditions at the top, yet pepole went up with no crampons/ spikes, for the last mile it was ice,cant count the pepole who almost slide off the cliffy section, or the tumbles pepole took

what views their were were ok, but slide dont have much going for it besides a easy trail and being the highest katskill peak
