Ascent Trip Report

From PA on Rt 47. We headed up at 9:51 am and arrive at the summit at about 11:45 . grabbed a decent view from the John Borroughs rock, and returned the northern view point for a hard cider, and to pop on our micros for the decent. Saw many many people on the trails, many ascending during out decent most with spikes, some without. bare booted the trail up the the spikes were perfect for the first 2 miles of the decent, where the pack had gotten a bit slick from all the traffic.

aboout 3 hours 15 minutes round trip, and 2 / 4 winter peaks completed for our 35ers!
