kitNice, short hike with a lovely view  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2009
Took about three hours to the top. The trail was a bit uneven, but very easy to hike in summer. At the top there is a steeper part with bare rock. The trail is never exposed in any way, and can be hiked by people who don't like heights. The view from the top over the nearby mountains and the lake nested between them is lovely.

Great but tough hike. This mountain packs more punch than any in its height, steep climb with rock scrambling going steady up 2990 feet in less than 3 miles on the Yellow Blaze trail. I climbed out and back through the blue and yellow trails. Weather was great and cooperating and the view from the summit is breathtaking with many lakes and surrounding peaks and a great visibility in a clear sky day like the one I had. Lots of mudd on the way up and many streams, typical in a spring climb, to drink from after using water tablets. Not too many people on the mountain as feared. Started around 10:20 AM and was back in 7 hours. Had a Great time!

Great hike with wonderful views of the surrounding peaks. Take the time to summit Iroquois and Wright while you're up there. There is an ongoing restoration project at the peak which feels a little like a garden in summer!

Great training, perfect for an overnight. Was pretty wet light rain at times, cold and windy at summit. All and all great fun!

Sick Climb. We got an early start which paid off because a the day went on the wind got stronger. At the summit the wind was between 50mph and 65-70mph gusts. Having crampons was a real plus as the upper half of the trail was coated with thick ice.

My first peak in late fall. Got to the summit and the wind was howling at 80 km per hour and it was snowwing horizontally. Lost our way back for the first hundred yards before turning back on the right trail.

Date Climbed: Feb 12, 2011


Didn't really appreciate the "mandatory" snowshoes on the rocky, icy summit with 30-40mph winds. Not a lot of views but still a fun climb.

chrisbrownExcellent day hike with friends  Sucess!


Climbed this from the Lake Colden side(solo) in 2009. Then went back with friends and did it again from the Adirondack Loj side(Aug. 2010) Great time and excellent views.

Crisp snow, clear skies, calm winds, and solitude on the summit...priceless.

Perfect weather. About a foot of snow on the ground, but the trail was pretty well compacted, having microspikes was very helpful.

Lots of rain in the days prior made the route mroe closely resemble a waterfall, but it was great fun. Rime and wind up top in the clouds, no view. Guess I will have to come back!

First hike in the Dak's. Great day, great hike. Except for the cloud sitting right on top! Boo! Went a day after a heavy rain so the way down was pretty slippery - and a good amount of ice and wind on top.
