Ascent Trip Report

Clear spring morning, little cold (28 degrees) at start. Had to walk to Dacy clearing as road was blocked off. About 1" of fresh snow after the break off to the right for the Sleeping Beauty Summit. Clear at the top with views to Vermont and Lake George/High Peaks area.

The Bumps pond route was ice laden and I needed micro-spikes and gaiters to not lose it at time. Took them off once I reached the pond.
