Ascent Trip Report

From Adirondack Loj. Wanted to do Haystack/Skylight/Grey, ended up doing Marcy & Skylight. No beaten path to Haystack and several feet of snow. Couldn't find TH to Grey. Very wet on way back, soaked feet last 6+ miles. Trails were treacherous, and we fell/postholed over & over. There were many snow bridges with water running under them, about to collapse. Hiked a good portion of the day with a father/son team, didn't get their names.
