Report

This is my last hard mountain effort until October (Chicago Marathon). I wanted to do this route in my (new) home mountains for awhile. I started this effort with the aid of my driver/other half, Hannah, at 5:30am, at the Catamount TH. It was upper 50F. My route choice was Catamount - Bear Den - Big Crow - Hurricane - Baxter - Pitchoff - Van Ho - Jo - Cobble Hill, where I stopped my watch for the last time after the round-trip.The temps rose into the mid-70s, then upper 70s, then mid-80s, then upper 80s! Unheard of for the ADK in May. Happy with this effort!
