Great views, I hiked up Gothics and took the ridge over to Armstrong. You can get sweeping panoramas of many of the western High Peaks and Lake Placid. Pay attention to which way you came to the summit. There are two exits very close to each other that will lead you to different places. We hiked almost an hour out of our way by accident and did not bring enough water for the extra mileage. Overall, a great time.

Nice rock slides, still muddy, great views on top. Some mosquitoes.
