"Out on a fine spring day in the middle of winter. Cloudy blue sky with sunshine pushing the temperature through the 60’s into the low 70’s by mid afternoon. After signing into the register on Frissell I returned to the highpoint pin and cairn to sign into the register and have lunch in the sunshine. The only sign of winter was the lingering ice in Riga lake and at the top of the falls on the side trail up to the South Taconic trail. Once back to the car I had to put the windows down as it was too hot inside, haven’t had to do that in months." - Mount Frissell (south slope), Nimblefoot, Feb 21, 2018
"bartholomews cobble state reservation summit trail takes you about 80% of the way to the summit of this mtn but ends at the treeline on the MA/CT border. In lieu of actually bagging this summit, this is the only way in peakery to log the bartholomews cobble climb." - Miles Mountain, adrocks, Nov 5, 2017
