Ascent Trip Report

A Yale Freshman Outing Group was hanging out on lower Black Dome outcrops on my climb up to the summit with its vista south into the Catskills, and at my descent were still in a school of discourse; I made my late lunch further up beyond the Blackhead summit at an outcrop vista of the Hudson River stretching its way north to Albany. I've finally managed these two as one outing, with their views climbing up out of Lockwood Gap.
