"Nine of us took a stroll across the Burrough Range to complete Laura’s and Tom’s first Catskill 420 Grid and my second. We arrived earlier than planned but were still greeted by six friends and the summit steward. More friends would arrive in ones and twos within the next hour. Everyone including the steward and other hikers were treated to a cooler filled with ice cream sandwiches and fruit bars, homemade cookies and rhubarb crumb bars and homemade fruit filled hand pies from a CIA chef/instructor. A complete sugar rush for two hours before heading down to the PA for celebratory beverages. W" - Slide Mountain, Nimblefoot, Jul 8, 2018
"Leaving Beaver point camp site in morning, hiked up the pass to the Boundary peaks. This was on tough climb up, lots of boulders and hiking along side waterfalls, plus straight up fir 2 miles. The waterfalls were awesome though and made it more enjoy able!" - Algonquin Peak, blackwolf_03278, Jul 8, 2018
"Nine of us took a stroll across the Burroughs Range to complete Laura’s and Tom’s first 420 Catskill Grid and my second one. Beautiful sunny day with the heat and humidity down to a more reasonable level compared to the previous week. Not many folks on top but it was still early in the day. Chatted with an old friend before moving on to Cornell." - Wittenberg Mountain, Nimblefoot, Jul 8, 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. We all successfully made it through the Crack via different routes on our way over from Wittenberg. A couple of gr oup photos then moved on toward Slide. Had the summit opening to ourselves, still not many others out on a beautiful sunny weekend day. " - Cornell Mountain, Nimblefoot, Jul 8, 2018
"One of the best "Bang for Buck" Mountains out there. Stunning views for a not so overly strenuous hike. Less than a mile on a fairly gradual upwards trail. A fire tower and great views from the ledge. 3rd time up here now. No doubt, I'll be back again." - Azure Mountain, UK-Ranger, Jul 7, 2018
