Ascent Trip Report

Started from Spruceton to diamond notch waterfalls, took devils path to cairn about .02 mi from the devils acre leanto. Great overlook on DP overlooking valley between sw hunter, westkill and hunter. Nothing to steep here, not blood pumping by any means. The bushwack was a very well established herd path. Went up toward end of path against a nice stream, again well established. Put name in orange 3500 club canister, was pretty neat. Was still lots of ice, used my kahtoola microspikes for the first time over my yaktrax, worked like a champ, great investment.
