Ascent Trip Report

Hike #2 for the Catskill 3500 Club. Summit #2. (1st year of quest)

This hike was to also used for the Fire Tower Challenge. At the time I was not dedicated to the challenge I was pursuing the Catskill 3500 Club.
The cap on the tower was padlocked but we were able to view from the stairs. It was years later that the Fire Tower Challenge became important.

After completing the Catskill 3500 Club requirements (#1805) in 2009. I went on to pursue the Finger Lakes Trail, End to End #355) I had started the trail in 2001 and completed it in 2013.

In 2010 I seriously began the Fire Tower Challenge, by completing the Catskill Fire Towers. 2011 and 2012 were devoted to the FLT then in 2013 the F.T. Challenge became of greater importance.
