|Date:||Saturday, February 14, 2009|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New York|
| Elevation:||4626 ft / 1410 m|
Ascent Trip ReportAn unbelievably beautiful day for a winter hike. Clear and 15ish in the morning, and 25ish in the afternoon. I used the Ridge Trail from 73, and also bagged Rocky, which was brutal due to the unbroken trail, and unconsolidated snow.
I highly recommend crampons, as the trail up Giant was very well packed, and there were large patches of ice.
