Ascent Trip Report

This trip was murderous. But in retrospect, we probably shouldn't have done it on a day when it was 95 degrees and really humid. We even saw the requisite rattle snakes (on French Point) - as big around as my arm. But we made it, which makes us Lake George 12sters, so go us!

Left the car at 8:30.
Hit the sign for the trail split at 1.78 miles 1:15
Continued up the mountain and hit the Leanto on Fifth at 2.49 miles 1:39
French Point (and the rattlesnake!) at 4.47 miles, 3:23
First Peak 5.67 miles, 4:17
Juncion with Montcalm Point, 7.34 miles, 5:32 The last 5 miles along the water are NOT flat - don't fool yourself!
Sign out box 12.08 miles, 8:18

Back to car at 5:30 (I think)
