Ascent Trip Report

Blue bird day but a little cold - 32 F at start and 34 F at finish. Inch or two of crusty snow starting about hafl way up but traction was not needed - barebooted. Fire tower was tall and provided fantastic views of Showangunks, Catskills, etc. Walk around pond was long but can be done quickly - listening to tunes.
