Trip Report

     Left Chappel Pond TR at 8:15am sharp. Summit of Rocky Peak at 12:30. Summit of Giant at 2pm. Back to the car at 3:45. Good snow on the way up, clouds broke by the junction to Rocky. Celebrated Peggy's Birthday with a reese's PB cup cake and some prune Grappa. 30 min stop on Rocky Summit under bluebird conditions. Good time back to Giant Summit. 30 min break, talked to some interesting guys from VT. 2 idiots in crampons only ruined trail on way down. Mashed potato conditions on the way out, good butt sliding regardless
