New York State Conservationist;Feb2006, Vol. 60 Issue 4, p20
The article discusses the author's experience peak bagging unnamed, viewless and trailless 3,500 and 4,500 peaks of New York during winter season. He finds that the beauty of climbing the unpopular trailless peaks in winter lay in the uniqueness of the idea coupled with the wildness and challenge. He recalls climbing Little Santanoni's domed summit which holds distinction as the lowest 3,500-foot peak in the state.
