Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2006

Combined with Wright and Iriquois. It wasn't too bad as someone had already kicked the trail in the snow to this point.

What an awesome peak. This was my first trip to the Daks and I sure was impressed. Amazing views and a gorgeous August Day even though it was a bit chilly. Beautiful place!

The hike that began my 46 quest (not counting Marcy long ago). One of the best views for a short roundtrip anywhere in the East. Yes, there was snow and ice in early November.

Had a good time. Started at 0555, got back down at 1105. Steep in some spots. Slippery and muddy, had to carry a stick. First one on the trail for the day. Lots of people going up when I was coming back down. Summit was in the clouds. When I left it looked like it was clearing up.

baezBest of the 46ers  Sucess!


Hiked this peak many times during my youth and was my favorite of all 46ers done. Spent several nights at Colden and what would a stay there be without bears ripping through feedbags.

Date Climbed: Sep 24, 2005


Camped Friday night just shy of McIntyre Falls, then hit Wright Peak, took some shots of the plane wreckage, then did a round-trip to the top of Algonquin. Excellent weather - not too hot, but not very cool either. Incredible views!

Epdrun1Route Climbed: Marcy Dam to Wright/Algonquin  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 7, 2006


Great day. Had camped out at Marcy Dam the night before in -5 degree weather. 35 degree 0 mph wind on summit day. 9 hour roundtrip from Marcy Dam to Wright/Algonquin/Avalanche Lake. Snowshoes and crampons necessary. Very steep and tiring but great views from the top. Trail down to Avalanche lake could have been a bobsled track. Good fun if you can glissade.

Extremely well marked and trail was very packed.

horalkafrom Heart Lake - in and out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 11, 2006


It was a very beautiful sunny day just a little bit cold (at least for me) about -10F. The hike was very good and this winter is very scarce on snow so no snow shoes were necessary and we just used crampons at the top part of the hike, just about at the tree line. Because it was very sunny the view was magnificent, petty I forgot my camera in the cabin.

Great hike with a impressive site of Marcy in the distance ...great time w/wine and cheese at the top.

The hike was great better than Whiteface and the Cascade. However after reaching the top I checked my pack for water and found my partners filled my pack with stones... what a crew.. good times

Livelife4SummitsRoute Climbed: LOJ to Summit Date Climbed: January 8th, 2005  Sucess!


A year ago, in 2004 I tried to summit but got stopped by a tremendously deteriorating weather and a night in -25F in a tent that was not too pleasant. This year I was determined to go all the way, and as usual it snowed and then a storm started brewing, but I had a big enough window to make my way to the top and down below the trees to get back down and move on to the next summit. This might be a little shorter than Marcy, but it is as much challenging.

MikeWRoute Climbed: Lake Colden Date Climbed: October 9, 2005  Sucess!


My son (11) and I had a great 2 days backpacking trip from the Loj via Avalanche Lake to Lake Colden where we pitched our tent, and on the 2nd day we climbed Algonquin Peak with zero visibility and 50 mph wind with a 50 lbs pack. Still, we had a lot of fun doing it. Will go back for sure, probably in winter.

Moose023Route Climbed: The Loj Date Climbed: October 22nd, 2005  Sucess!
Made the trip down from Ontario to bag our first High Peak. Chose Algonquin because we only had time for a day trip. Started out a beautiful, clear fall day but cloudy and windy on the summit. Trail was wet and muddy to Whales Tail, then wet, and icy to summit. Saw a pine marten. 45 more to go...
