    Default NY-needs another shelter

    Are there any plans for a shelter in NY between Fingerboard and Wildcat? That's a grueling 14 miles.

    There used to be one at Island pond. It was frequntly abused (near the road) an was torn down. A person could wander around to the south side of the pond and find a lovely stealth site.

    First time I've seen NY and grueling mentioned together.
    Pain is a by-product of a good time.

    It's a rough section... Agony Grind and all

    I just stealth at Island Pond. No one bothered me.

    Yeah, the option of stealthing over there, as many do, was tempting but I carried on to the shelter. Next time.....

    Meh... I just use my tent. Plenty of awesome tenting areas about there, including Island Pond area.
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.

    You missed out... great swimming at Island Pond in June. Also great for sun bathing on the rocks. Had a blast there!

    The first part NOBO of NY is a surprise for many with its nice assortment of rocks boulders and even a ladder, etc. I recall how frustrated I was. SOBO though, whoopie, except the final part south of Wildcat - that was a dumb section over stupid rocks

    I guess I found it "grueling" because my body wasn't quite conditioned for anything longer than a dayhike.
