Wittenberg-Cornell-Slide Trail

"Tom, Joe, Yong Ae and I rendezvoused to Moon Haw to hike the old a Boy Scout trail a month after Tom and I last did it. Despite recent snowstorms there was less snow on the ground then back in December. Worse yet it is all fluffy and just deep enough to hide the variety of footing hazards of rocks, roots and branches. Higher up the fluff and leaves combo made for slippery footing despite wearing spikes. When we hit the range trail the new snow was roughly 2-3 inches deep then rose to about 4 inches as we neared the summit where we encountered some drifting. Ascending the crack was no problem a" - Nimblefoot, Jan 10, 2019
"Six of us headed up to the summits of Witt and Corn using the old Boy Scout trail out of Moon Haw. After a leisurely lunch in the sun on Wittenberg and a number of group photos we headed up to the “Crack” our final hurdle before reaching the summit opening of Cornell. No problem since there was minimal ice and enough snow to make it fairly easy to hop up. On our descent of the crack we were aided by a 100’ of webbing, carried by Tom, which was also used by the group of four we met on Witt. Back on the Boy Scout trail I had some fun “playing” in the crusty snow while the rest stuck to our broke" - Nimblefoot, Dec 9, 2018
"Nine of us took a stroll across the Burroughs Range to complete Laura’s and Tom’s first Catskill 420 Grid and my second.

Had the summit opening to ourselves, still not many others out on a beautiful sunny weekend day. " - Nimblefoot, Jul 8, 2018
"Steve joined me for a through hike of the Burroughs Range. Upon leaving Slide mountain we lost the nice packed trail and now we were descending on soft slippery fluff on top of a hard crust. Our Hillsounds barely grabbed the crust and tended to get balled up with the snow. Getting down the initial steep descent to the spring was rather interesting. Not using poles I made friends with many limbs and trees to prevent or stop any unplanned slides. Once down below the spring it became much easier to enjoy a normal stride and proceed toward the climb of Cornell. Surprisingly we haven’t seen any oth" - Nimblefoot, Apr 21, 2018
"Steve and I joined a Mohonk hikers/Rip Van Winkle Hikers group hike led by our friends Tom & Anna traversing the Burroughs range. After having some fun in the Cornell Crack we got some views from the summit as the clouds were beginning to lift and blue sky popping out. A quick snack on top then down the trail to an open rock outcropping for snack #2 then full steam to our final peak, Slide mountain." - Nimblefoot, Aug 12, 2017
