The cold snap finally broke so great time to strap on snowshoes and hit the trail. Great day weather wise used like 4 diifferent trails. Pretty good workout and fun time.

A wintery mix made for a miserably cold and wet hike with no views, but one more mountain under the belt.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2013
While climbing Slide yesterday 9/28/13, I accidentally left my camera on a rock near the beginning of the trail up to the Brothers, near the Garden parking lot. Went back a few min later when I realized and it was already gone. If you have it Id love to get it back. Please call 518 424 5866. Thanks

JRBWonderful Snowshoeing - very cold

JRB

Nights got down to -15 F but the snow was very dry. Class 3 ledges needed a bit of a technical scramble with the snow shoes. Made it feel like we were accomplishing something.

NY police called my wife from using the registration from my license plate on my car, parked at the trailhead. He said, "Do they know what we were doing? You know lady it's way below zero and 12 inches of snow fell last night." She answered,"No they are idiots but they will be safe enough."

There was hardly any snow on the drive up but it ran about 1-2 ft deep at the trailhead. The trail was well worn by hikers so snowshoes were not necessary. Crampons would have been nice since a few sections were compacted steep snow and pretty slippery.

Did this on the 2nd day of a Catskills hiking trip. Time to summit from Woodland Valley was three hours and forty minutes and time back was twenty minutes less than that. A very solid seven miles one way with some great scrambling up steep patches. The col between Cornell and Slide had some great campsites in an interesting high altitude forest.

RedwicHorrible Weather!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012

This was my second stop during a big NE USA peakbagging trip. Several friends had mentioned this peak as a suggestion, mostly because it is one of the most isolated peaks in the USA, so from that standpoint it was good to visit. However, the horrible rain and wind made the hike most unpleasant, and there were no views. I was stunned by how unusually bad the weather was, but then foudn that later that night that a tornado (or set of tornadoes) had taken place near my earlier locations. Too close for comfort!

Went up for a winter ascent of the highest peak in the Catskills. Much of the trail had 6" of ice on it, making for an interesting ascent, and an even more interesting descent.

apewhere's the ice this year?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2012
Out-and-back from the Slide trailhead. Microspikes were useful, but we saw some folks in bare boots. Where's the ice this year?!?

apeSoldiered on due to scouts  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2011
Hiked Panther, Wittenberg, and Cornell, planning to camp between Cornell and Slide. But atop Cornell we met a large group of scouts aiming for the same campsite, so we decided to push it over Slide as well. Long day!

Hiked up from the Denning trailhead after spending the night at the Bouton Memorial Lean-to. Cool but clear - a good first trip in the Catskills.

awesome hike up to the summit, i enjoyed every minute - what a beautiful day! never too cold, sun was out, great views...

the first .5 miles on the trail, just after the parking area at the start/end of the hike was very icy and slippery - otherwise no problems on the trail which was well maintained and clearly marked - we went up Wittenberg Cornell and came back down via the Curtis-Ormsbee trail in about 4 hours, full write up here:

mrbidaRanger's Day Out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2012

mrbida

A nice hike with intermittent flurries. Little snow until about 3200' where the snow and ice became deeper. Took us 2:45 to go up and down via Burroughs. Would have made it in less time with micro-spikes. Currently, crampons are not necessary.

There were several rangers on the trail today. It appears a group of three males camped at the summit, which is against park regulations. In addition, the group improperly disposed of food waste and had a fire above 3500'. The group had at least one firearm and the rangers ended up escorting them down with more rangers waiting at the trailhead.
