Hit this peak on a fairly strenuous day hike taking us from Elk Pass; over Nippletop, Dial, and Bear Den; and down.

Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2007


Lot of snow. Broke trail most of the way. Slow going. We originally wanted to do Colvin, but everyone was too tired. We came back over the fish hawk cliffs and Indian Head. We managed to camp in a low spot and the wind was howlin' above our heads. We were comfy. Learned our lesson from the year before, I suppose. :-)

Nasty thunderstorm on the way down from Nippletop. Unfortunately I didn't learn my lesson with thunderstorms until eleven years later during an even nastier T-storm.

Via bear den. The fresh, heavy snow (varying from 1 to 4 inches) from the night before was quite beautiful, but everything began to melt throughout the day. Snow falling off the trees made us very wet.

Just a path covered by trees and a big rock on the top. A means to an end... to get to Nippletop... where the real nice views begin.

Hiked over this summit on the way back to the trailhead from Nippletop in the rain. Not much else to say.

Cool rock near the summit to sit on for snacktime. I bet somewhere out there in that sea of white clouds was an outstanding view.

Did I mention that it might rain today? The hut guy said that to me. Screw him--I like the rain, I can get the summit to myself. So there. Put that in your pipe and smoke it...But it really never stopped raining.

Hiked in the snow all the way. Descending was a lot of fun. The Great Range was beautiful to see. I was glad I chose a clear day for this route.

I had lunch on the big rock near the sign, summit or no summit it was a great view.

The loop took me 7hr 45min to complete.

A new set of signs and some good trail maintenace by the ATS (Adirondack Trail Society) made this a good days hiking.

The new sign at the lookout will of course make everyone think they are at the summit but it all depends on who you talk to.

This was the first time I was in the area since the 1999 fire and I was very impressed by the great views it created.

One also sees how fast mother nature recalims its own as it is completly covered in 1 m high popular and will be totaly over grown in a few more years.

I wish I came a few weeks later as the place is awash in rasberrys and would of made for a good snack.
