Ascent Trip Report

Ascended from Shandaken Brook lean-to on 3rd day of my backpacking trip. Trail is pretty overgrown. Must be terrible to hike in summer when everything is in bloom. Summit is along a herd path just to the north of the trail. You can't miss it. After Eagle, I headed down to Haynes and on to Balsam Mtn. Pics
