The summit of Catamount
Esther from the north
We reached the summit shortly after 2pm, but did not stay for long. On the way down, we chose to ditch the crampons and take our chances slipping and sliding. In any case, we'd discovered that there was little actual ice under the snow, and, for the most part, the way down was a quick and easy boot slide.

Melanie, too
Overall, this hike turned out pretty nicely. We lucked out with a brief window of sunny weather, and it wasn't too cold. The only thing I would wish for (and have been wishing for for some time now this season) is ... SNOW, and LOTS OF IT! I'm getting tired of this thin-bit-of-loose-snow-over-rock stuff!
