Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Red Hill fire tower after hiking Tremper Mountain fire tower. Red Hill was my 2nd fire tower in the challenge. Got back to the car just before dark. Ran into a group of 3 people from the Adirondacks. They were going to drive to and hike Balsam Lake next to complete the 5 fire towers in the Catskills. They would be hiking in the dark. When I was leaving the parking lot, the exhaust broke on the Subaru, but I still drove to Resorts World Catskills and won $487 in less than 2 hours.
