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.

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.

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.

VERY hot day, in the mid- to high 80s all day. Hiked with my wife and had a short, but nice, rest at the top. Really wanted to do Iroquois and Wright, but we just didn't have enough time. Maybe next time.

Hiked up from Loj via the yellow trail. Weather was iffy, but I decided that's when one can get some really neat pictures. Just above treeline I put on my jacket. About 45 temp and 30 mph winds and almost able to touch the bottom of the clouds it seemed. Went up Wright on the way down. Great day!
