Ascent Trip Report

Quick tag on my way to Katie Koehler's house for matt's birthday weekend. On my way to Connecticut I made a pit stop in the Catskills to add Slide Mountain to the list. The trail was gradual, consistent, and basically followed the major ridge up slide mountain. It was unseasonable warm and I was in short and a t shirt. There was enough ice on the trail to warrant microspikes for speed but it was possible without them. Since I was by myself and the condtions were perfect I basically ran up and down. It was rather uneventful but there were some nice views from the top. It was my last NE 4000 footer in NY! Afterwards I met up with Matt, John, and Katie for a "Here Come the Mummies" show in NYC.
