Ascent Trip Report

Did this hike after Red Hill. Used microspikes, as there wasn't much snow. Trail was easy to follow and packed down pretty good. Some completely bare spots with rocks/water/leaves. Other spots were icy, but not too much. Several others on the trail. Top of tower was locked. Got some good views from the uppermost part. A few young men were camping at the first lean to. Did this hike for the fire tower winter rocker.There is just about NO cell service in the Catskills. If you need it around Tremper, I was directed to Shandaken Town Hall – 7209 Rt. 28. There is also some cell service on the trail/tower.
