    Thanks for that trip (or climb) down ( or up) memory lane. I was a camper,CIT and counselor at Silver Lake Camp in Hawkeye for many years and could see Catamount every day across the lake. I can’t remember when I finally climbed it for the first time but I remember loving finally being able to see the camp from the top.
    A sweet mountain!

      I also was a camper, CIT, and counselor at Silver Lake Camp. We loved the Catamount climb and view! Great prep for the 46!

    Exploring peaks like Catamount, with its unique blend of being a low peak yet offering high peak scrambles, is what makes hiking and mountaineering so intriguing. It is a testament to the diversity of experiences that the great outdoors has to offer. These types of hikes challenge us physically and mentally, reminding us of the beauty and unpredictability of nature. While Catamount might not be the tallest peak, it clearly has its own character and allure. Your blog post encourages adventures to step off the beaten path and discover hidden gems like Catamount. It is a great reminder that the mountains, regardless of their height, always have something incredible to offer.
