Ascent Trip Report

Black Friday on Bear Mountain. Parked my car at the Undermountain Trail on Rt 41 north of Salisbury. Many other parties there on an unseasonably pleasant late November day. Took the Paradise Lane Trail to the AT at the north side of Bear in Sage's Ravine. Headed south up the steep side to the summit where I watched the sun set and ran into two other parties. Did most of the descent in nothing but moonlight and my head lamp -- kept following the AT south to Riga Junction and then to Undermountain trail back to my car.
