Tabletop was tough not because of the terrain, but because of our gear choices. We carried a full compliment of backcountry ice equipment and 70 meters of rope. We had originally planned on doing some self arrest training and ice practice, but the slow pace dictated by heavy packs, prevented anything but summiting and heading back. We were the last people off the Marcy trail. We hit the parking lot of the Loj in pitch darkness.
