Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful Fall day in the Catskills, not a cloud in the sky. Only 2 cars at TH when I got there. Temps in the 50's-60's. Foliage was a bit past peak, but the views from Giant Ledges overlooks are some of the best in the Catskills. Continued over to Panther Mtn with limited but nice views from the summit and the ridge just beyond the summit. Passed about 8 groups of people on the descent.
