Ascent Trip Report

Made lousy time going up the mountain due to all the ripe blackcaps near the trail-we scarfed up quite a few of 'em. Zach's first ascent of Black Dome and my second. Also his third Catskill High Peak overall.Had nice views at summit ledge from Indian Head over to Hunter. We could just barely make out the firetower on Hunter.
