Ascent Trip Report

Small parking lot on Route 42. 2+ foot snowfall 4 days prior. John and I got an early start expecting to break trail all day. We found a trench already broken out to the summit. We noticed a post holes in the way up. Perfect conditions. Steady flurries and intermittent blue skies. The summit was very windy. Steep areas on the way down were traversed by sliding on our butts. 5 star hiking day. John and I stopped by Woodstock Brewery for food just after lunch time.
