Ascent Trip Report

I hiked Big Indian and Fir with the Catskill 3500 Club. The trail was mostly broken but towards the top, wind caused us to break trail. This is a pretty easy bushwhack sine most of the ascent to Big Indian follows a maintained trail. Navigating from Big Indian to Fir is important as you want to hit the land shelf and ridge. We used snowshoes the whole hike.
