Trip Report: It was roughly 1 pm when I started up over the Great Ledge. It was a nice clear day with open views for plenty of opportunities for photos. There is a small dip before a tough ascent up the last couple hundred feet to Panther after such a long day. I had to breeze past the Great Ledge and snap just a few quick photos to make sure I could bag this last peak before nightfall. I had my headlamp, but I wanted to see the views and ensure a safe descent. I got to the top of Panther feeling like I was running out of fuel, but the accomplishment gave me a second wind. I snapped some photos and turned to head back down. I had plenty of daylight to meander the Great Ledge and get some nice shots of the landscape. The Great Ledge has so many amazing views of the Catskill range, it will forever be one of my favorite Catskill hikes.
