Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this with the Rip Van Winkle hiking club. We hiked Plateau, Sugarloaf, Twin and Indian Head - I only needed P&S but the other 2 are done for a potential winter patch.

This hike was all ice!!! It had rained 2 days before and all of the snow was gone. Saturday the temps made a drastic shift to 0 - 10 degrees and the same for Sunday when we hiked. It was all ice, fairly soft but my microspikes slipped in several spots.

Motion X stats: 9:58:30; 8.66 miles; 4,888' gain.
