Ascent Trip ReportHit Pyramid on way to Gothics. Took Alfred W. Weld trail past Lower Ausable Lake Dam. Beautiful views from the dam and summit. Short distance from Pyramid to Gothics summit. The mix of leaves on the ground, mud, some icy spots and melting snow under foot and from the trees made for quite the slippery, drippy slosh fest. Outstanding views from Gothics summit. Used traction devices on upper sections and most of Beaver Meadows trail on the way down. Lots of huge blow downs on Beaver Meadows trail. Several ladders to go both up and down. I heard there are cables also, but did not see any. Took the West River Trail after seeing the Beaver Meadows falls.
