Ascent Trip Report

Bear Mountain in April w/ Gus Melita. Parked on Rt 41 and did the loop (Undermountain / Paradise Lane / AT on the ascent -- AT / Undermountain on the descent). Weather was eradic -- started partly sunny and cool but ran into sleet and snow on the way up. Paradise Lane was a little muddy in some places and the rock scramble just below the summit was wet. Summit was very cold and windy but exceptional views despite the precipitation on the way up. On the way down the sun came up again and had to be in the upper 50's by the time we got back to the car. Bizarre weather day.
