Ascent Trip Report

I had climbed Big Slide in 1995 as part of my 46er quest. After completing the 46 peaks I wanted to continue hiking in the Adirondacks, rather than just do them all over again, which was not my goal, nor was hiking them in the winter, I returned to complete certain peaks that had been skipped.
Yard was one of the peaks skipped due to the fact that it did not meet the criteria for a 46er peak. I believe the col was to shallow for the peak to be considered a separate mountain (250' requirement).
Big slide was my turn around point when I had last been here with my son. This time I continued on a trail past the peak and finally reached Yard. After which I took a route down the other side of Yard so I was not simply re-hiking a trail already covered.
