Mount Gerard

Mount Gerard

Mount Gerard is a modest summit in the northern Sparta mountains. The summit is viewless when the leaves are up and only has limited views when the leaves are down.

You wouldn't know it from the photograph, but the climb from Summit Lake is steep enough to require you to use your hands in climbing.
