Ascent Trip Report

Got an early start in order to ensure that our third attempt would be the charm on Bearfort Mountain. After having to turn back on previous attempts due to such varying conditions as son's nap schedule (1st attempt) and wife falling into ice covered stream after a late April dusting of snow (2nd attempt), my brother and I decided to go it alone this time. We quickly scampered over the puddingstone ridges, encircled Terrace Pond and made quite a few quick jogs over to potential high point locations. We had the mountain to ourselves and a Northern water snake we found sunning itself in the early morning sun. On our way back down there were quite a few parties coming up eager to take advantage of the rapidly warming June day.
