|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New York|
| Elevation:||3940 ft / 1200 m|
Ascent Trip ReportOriginal plan was Acra Point solo, but met Blackhead summit steward John in the Big Hollow parking lot. We talked and I changed plans and joined him up to Blackhead. A rocky trail following the Batavia Kill Creek for much of the way for the first mile and a half or so. Spring on the left side. Go to the left at the junction (right for Black Dome/Thomas Cole). A small camping area is to the left. Then the elevation increases. There's a nice section with views; it's also the section where there are some scrambles. Nice but limited view at the summit. He stayed for his summit duty and I went on to Black Dome and Thomas Cole.
