Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Doubletop, Graham & Balsam Lake with the Catskill 3500 club. There was an easy herd path to follow up Doubletop, used micro spikes toward the top. The path from Doubletop to Graham was very steep and not quite as obvious. The path from Graham top Balsam Lake was basically an unmarked trail which was very easy to follow. We picked up the trail to Balsam Lake and had some nice views from the firepower. You could see bear prints in the ice.
