Lost and Found: My urge not to swear when I had to break out Rollins Trail 
 
Comments
Comments: Hit this one late afternoon. Bring your ice skates or your zambonee for the parking lot. Dicey Mills is a hard packed trail. Spikes only. When I reached the ledges it became crampons worthy but those were left being useless in my zambonee. Great views from the ledges though. At the top to my horror Rollins wasn't touched. After a moment of serious tourttes outburst I slapped on the shoes and bulled my way to the lovely views of White Face then continued onward to Dicey Mills. Rollins is an interesting trail to break and stay on. Welcome sight to see Dicey packed down. Quick work to summit and switched to spikes for a fast run down. At the farm house I was greeted with a view of a million stars.. Great evening spent tramping about.
