Ascent Trip Report

Abraham from Battell trail. We got to the summit of Abe in about 2.5 hours over 3 miles. Took an hour to break trail to Lincoln. Searched for a path to Ellen from Sugarbush South, and could not find one (LT proper was not broken out).

After the previous day's lack of speed, we were not up for an additional 2.5 miles of trail breaking through poorly-marked ski slopes.

Also: if you're postholing, put on showshoes. If you don't have snowshoes and are postholing, get off the trail. I tripped and ended up going full-on into a tree catching my snowshoe in someone's posthole.
