Route Climbed: Trail Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2001 and Apr 9, 2003
The first time I climbed this peak it was a beautiful warm summer day. There were some thundershowers nearby though. My dad with with me and this was his first 46er peak. I also went and bagged Porter while my Dad rested at the trail junction.
The second time I climbed this was under winter conditions even though it was April. There were no views dues to fog, but I loved hiking in my new Tubbs Altitude 30 snowshoes. They did great! And the climb was a nice experience.

Inspiring..............That pretty much sums it up. My first Adirondack high peak that has inpired me and my family to seek the only known cure for Adirondack Summit Fever..............by climbing the other 45.
