Ascent Trip Report

Lots of roads in the area not maintained in winter, so watch out. Came in from the south, took NY route 10 to Scoharie Co RT 16 westbound, then north on Lutheranville Rd to what is marked on the map as "American Way" but is in reality a very nice guy's driveway. It's not signed in reality but is across the road from "Little Italy Dr". Got to the end of the guy's plowed driveway (shown as a small, unnamed fork off of American Way on the map), strapped on the snowhoes and followed the ridgeline up to a fairly obvious high spot, crossing what must be the other side of American Way in summer on the way up. May be possible to access more easily from the other side (Sisson Rd) in summer.
