Ascent Trip Report

Great day for a hike. Haven't hiked in 5wks. Typical summer hike - nettles everywhere. Some were at least 6 ft. high. Came out with a few scratches from them, but looked better then I usually do. Couple of falls from the moss on the rocks. My son and I are down to our last 7 Mts. for the 3500 Catskill Club.
