Started at 19 Mile Brook Trail up to the junction going to the AMC Hut. We then climbed up the steep .7 to the summit of Wildcat A. The trail here was not in the best of shapes...lots of post holes, ice and just thin in areas. It took us an hour to get up this section. There was one area closer to the top where some people tried to go right (you can see the prints ending). We went left there and saw the trail marker on the tree. The rest of the ridge was hard packed and fine. After we hit Wildcat D, the short trail to get to the ski area was a mess...again post holes and ice. We just hung on to stuff and were careful. The trip down the ski slope was uneventful. We took Polecat all the way down sticking as close to the edges as we could. We did the road walk back to our car which was long but we were tired at this point.
