Ascent Trip Report

Great trip with the Plattsburgh State Outing Club. It was freezing cold and we took refuge in the elevator shaft to re-coop, eat and warm up before summating. Two of us snowboarded down and one skied. The return trip was much less windy and clear. The views were beautiful.

*Skis in "Gear/Help Used" is really a snowboard

My first winter Adirondack 46er!
