Catamount Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"It may be a minor peak but it offers major views of nearby Whiteface Mountain, and the climb is one of the longest, most fun scrambles over open rock in the Adirondack Park. There are five Catamount Mountains, plus one Catamount Peak and several more Catamount Hills and Knolls in New York State. This one is the highest. It’s also arguably one of the most fun hikes in the Adirondacks. Often overlooked due to its short mileage and the fact that it’s under 4,000 feet in elevation, Catamount is a favorite among regular hikers in the High Peaks region for its extensive open rock and ledgy scrambles."
