Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful sunny and dry day - 18 degrees F at the trailhead. I carried my snowshoes and wore my stabilicers the entire distance on this hike. The trail was packed enough that I only punched through to my knee about 30 times - did not feel inclined to put the snowshoes on. Great views fom the top. My first Catskill 35 winter peak.
