Ascent Trip Report

Went up South Dix from Macomb. Herd path dropped off the back of Macomb and went up through the Carson Boulder field. Final ascent was pretty exposed. Nice views looking East, towards Schroon Lake-Southwest, and a valley with bright colored trees. Very enjoyable climb. Pretty far in however.
