Roughly 30 to 35 minutes in it got drastically steeper. Met a father-son pair who camped at the junction and did this as a loop. When I got to the view point of Twin's South peak all foot prints stopped and I made trail to the summit of Twin.

I hiked this looking to have summated all the Catskill high peaks and have summated 100 different peaks this year. I did it! Finishing with 101 different mountain summits and 115 season all summits (14 of the mountains I did twice this year but in a different season).

12.5 miles total on this day using two trail heads to knock out the core four eastern Devil's Path peaks.
