Ascent Trip Report

Parked at trailhead and hiked up to Peekamoose first, then over to Table, and back over Peekamoose to the trailhead. This was a wonderful hike. What a great trail. Hiked with Dan, Sammy, and Richard. Towards the top of both mountains, the trail was quite icy. The ice certainly pushed the MicroSpikes to the max. I'm not sure how we always run into SO MANY unprepared people on the trail down in the Catskills. People scrambling up ice with no traction devices whatsoever, some without a pack or anything...and of course in cotton / denim. And here I am with enough gear to spend the night comfortably if necessary. I imagine I look just as silly to them as they do to me lol.
