Ascent Trip Report

My winter summit for my Catskill 3500 (regular - 37/39) , My 7th Catskill 3500 winter summit (7/35). No views just summated with Cory O. took some pictures at the marker and left. Roughly 3 stream crossings plus the two bridges. We bushwhacked to avoid potentially falling in water and avoid elevation changes.

My 104th summit of the year including the 13 peaks done on different dates (same day summits only count once).
