The thing I'll remember most about West Mt. is the almost straight down 
rock scramble off that mountain to go on to Bear Mt. By then, my feet 
and knees were killing me.

That was all that damn Earl Schaffer's fault.  He did that!!!!!

camped at West Mtn shelter with my friend
&gt; Beans.  We were both tenting behind the shelter there.  In the 
middle of the
&gt; night he called out for help, he couldn't get up because his legs 
were
&gt; cramping so bad.  His tent was one of those that opens up at the 
head, so I
&gt; helped him get out and we walked around in the dark about 2:00 in 
the
&gt; morning, admiring the view of the Hudson and NYC until he got to 
feeling
&gt; better.  And I had complained about hiking .6 off the trail to get 
to the
&gt; shelter!   Instead I wanted to stealth somewhere between there and 
Bear
&gt; Mtn.  That choice and his misfortune was my good luck, it was 
really magical
&gt; out there that night.   The next morning, thanks to a very slow 
start, we
&gt; were lucky enough to get our gear into the shelter just in time to 
watch a
&gt; massive storm roll across the valley and up the side of the 
mountain.  After
&gt; the storm cleared he set off to meet family and I set off for a 
luxury zero
&gt; at Fort Montgomery.   Dang I miss it all so much.
