Summited Basin Mountain 4827' on a clear, beautiful Sunday the day before Colombus day. Our group of 3 parked at the Marcy Field lot, took the bus to the Garden trailhead, and hiked in a bit past Johns Brook Lodge to set up camp. We summited Haystack, Basin, and Saddleback on Sunday, and hiked out from the JBL area on Monday morning in the rain. Had a great breakfast at Noonmark Diner!

The hike up from the col between Haystack and Basin is quite steep in parts, but otherwise wasn't too demanding. The reason it felt so hard was due to us summiting Haystack and getting very tired in the process. The summit of Basin is awesome, but we experienced some good bursts of wind, so we didn't linger too long since we still had to get down to the col between Basin and Saddlback, then climb up and over Saddleback to Ore Bed.

Humidity mixed with sweat and bug dope makes for a strange perfume.

Hiked to Basin from Slant Rock and to Saddleback. After lunch we did Gothic and Pyramid Peak. On the way down we hit Sawteeth. Only remaining was the long walk back to the car in St Huberts. Long day, but super view all around especially on Pyramid!

After camping at Bushnell and hitting Haystack, I cruised over to Basin.. Let me tell ya, that trail is STEEP heading up from the intersection of the Haystack Trail and the Range Trail. It was awesome. The trail goes vertical here, with the exception of small flat stretch. Basin was really nice, right up there with any other GR peak. The panoramic view includes Haystack and Marcy but it also gives a great look over the the Mac Range.

Revisit to beef up my climber's logs. Great loop with Saddleback. Love that single track trail that leads from the col.

This was the fifth summit on a long day hike followed by Haystack.

I was joined on this adventure by Mr. Steve and Mr. Baio.

This was my second time on this summit.

Just like Haystack, this is a long haul to get to. Tough one, which holds great views. I went on to Saddleback afterwards. I went up the Shorey shortcut, and then the Range Trail.

Scott, Pat and I did Basin along with Mt. Marcy, Saddleback and Haystack from the Garden's parking lot. Did the last 3 miles the next day. Great climbing, most people went to Marcy, only saw a few people at the other 3 mountains.

Climbed with Haystack and Saddleback via the Range Trail from the Garden. Looked like it was going to rain for most of the way. Great views from the summit. A few miles away Marcy was still in the clouds but otherwise the views were unobscured.

This was part of an 18+ mile loop that included Upper Wolf Jaw, Armstrong, Gothics, Saddleback, and Basin. After 5000+ feet of elevation gain, the 300+ feet of elevation gain while "descending" the Shorey Short Cut was demoralizing.

First was in a snow storm in 1972. This was a part of many Great Range traverses, including at least 2 backpacks. Loved the old snowbird lean-to, slant rock lean-to. sigh.

I see why it's called "Basin". What a snow collector!
