Ascent Trip Report

Headed up from Mill Brook Rd to the unmaintained road to the summit. I called the land manager ahead of time and it was no problem at all gaining access to the land with permission. The summit is quite ugly with an old radio tower building falling apart on it. The view is nice, one of the few Catskill peaks in the area with a view from the summit. After Graham, I headed on to Balsam Lake Mountain. Pics
