Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2006


Did this as part of a loop. Nice sunny day. A few people up on top with us, but still nice and peaceful. Pretty easy peak to check off the list.

Date Climbed: Feb 10, 2007


Did this from Gothics. The Range trail was well packed, no snowshoes are needed, but a couple spots are icy and you will be served well by wearing crampons.

This one was pretty tricky due to the iced over wood ladder. One of our party only made it because I literally pulled her butt up. Pretty cool hike.

The Ogre

Climbed in 1/06 as part of a Sawteeth/Lower Great Range traverse, and in 5/06 as part of a Great Range traverse from Marcy to WJ Gap. During the 1/06 climb, injured my right hand while glissading. Still hurts from time to time...

Started at St Huberts, went up Gothics, then down the great range hitting Armstrong, Upper and Lower Wolfjaw. Great fall colors!. Early snow & ice made it kind of treacherous.

Did 4 new winter summits this day and Upper Wolf Jaw twice. Solo- but hey, it is the Great Range and I had lots of boy scouts up there to break the trails in.

Summer hike was part of my first hike in the 'Dacks

Actually the second time I bagged this peak as the first time I couldn't find the real summit. This time I found it. Weather was terrible.

Second of three, from Upper Wolf Jaw then onto Gothics. Tackled this one with the ROTM gang: Mike, Tom, Mr. Baio, and Chris.

Nice views at the top, and a good spot for lunch. I recommend Triscuts, a pepperoni or smoked sausage stick, and cheese.

Cloudy, but still some great views. Wanted to go on to Uwj, but not enough daylight left.Best trip of the year yet. The falls toward the end of the trail was spectacular!!!

kevsmithRoute Climbed: Range trail from UWJ Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2003  Sucess!


Conditions warmer than expected, 70s and sunny. After a nice rest on UWJ, was ready to hit Armstrong. Rugged hike down UWJ and then back up Armstrong. Nice views from the top, more open than the previous two peaks.
