aaronjamesFrozen Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 19, 2012


Beautiful day hike from rt.73 by St. Huberts to the summit of Giant Mountain. The trail was mostly ice with slight snow cover which made for a fun descent on our backsides! Great view west from the top, and several others on the trail along the route.

Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2011
Laurence and I left Montreal at 8 o'clock, after deciding to go buy some micro spikes at the Mountaineer in Keene. (It was worth it, especially for RPR). We made it to the summit of Giant by the Zander Scott trail. We had the fortunate surprise of meeting our friend Genevieve lounging on the summit with 2 friends. They wanted to do Hopkins Mt, but we were set on doing RPR. We parted ways after un small lunch. The descend to the col between Giant and RPR was icy, microspikes helped a lot. We were back at the car around 6 PM. Sunny skies all day.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2011


Beautiful day for a hike with my two friends and their dog, who did amazingly well climbing up a mountain for his first time! Took the Zander Scott trail from 73 which took about 5 hours roundtrip. Wonderful views from the top and other exposed areas.

Fifth ascent, 2nd via the Eagle Slide

I was hoping for a better view towards Lake Champlain. Trees blocked most of the East facing view. However the view in towards the high peaks was pretty nice. This was a pretty short hike from the road as far as the Adirondacks go.

Finally hiked up Giant today. The day was perfect too. Lots of people there, but friendly and spaced out along the trails. Did Rocky Peak Ridge also. Much quieter over there, so I snuck in a little shut eye and enjoyed the breeze for a little while.

Winter ascent. Crampons were necessary and an axe was useful for setting at certain points.

it was fall on the bottom and winter on the top. in mid October.the hike was fairly easy but the ice and snow slowed us down on top,and heading down towards rocky peak was interesting.. we are getting crampons now..but it has awesome views!
