WinterWarlockTough day - but made it!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2008


The two days before dropped almost two feet of fresh snow. Set out for Giant & RPR, but turned back after reaching summit of Giant. Lots of trail breaking in the fresh powder wore us out (me mostly - the others were in much better shape than I)

starship_jenRidge Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 26, 2008


Did Rocky Peak Ridge first, then came back to tag Giant. A bit windy and cold at the top with clouds. Not much in the way of views on this day. Too bad--I imagine they'd be great! 21/46

PellucidWombatFirst Hike in the Adirondacks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2007


The first Adirondack peak that I have climbed, on a Labor Day Weekend visit with the family. I also jogged over to Rocky Peak Ridge and back without the family to get a good workout before heading down. Nice hike, great weather!

Traversed this one with my pal Tony. It was a long wintry day that made the burger at Lisa G's and sauna at Cobble Mtn. feel so much better.

sherpapeaksGreat Hike!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2007


This was a Great hike. My wife and I went via the ridge trail and what a hike. Amazing views all the way up and back. This was our second attempt bing that the first we had to turn back because of the dog. Going via the ridge trail there are a few short scrambling sections about 400 verticle feet from the top that present a problem getting down when you have a dog. Other than that a must for the high peaks!!!

KyleCozzensZander Scott Trail to Giant Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2007


Hiked this one solo before heading over to Rocky Peak Ridge. The steep rocky trail going into Giant's Washbowl and a little after were a pain, and the view from the summit wasn't that great, so I am glad I decided to make the hike over to Rocky Peak Ridge.

Moose023Nice Easy Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2007
Nice quick and easy hike (chose Giant cuz it was raining sideways and the weather didn't partially clear until after lunch). Great views of the Southern High Peaks from lookouts on way up. Summit was completely clouded in so visibility was almost zero. Oh well, just an excuse to climb it again...

tiogaFirst Winter Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 11, 2007


My first real mountain that I have climbed in the winter. It was a lot of fun and the trail is an intense climb. The dacks look so much more rugged than any other eastern mountains I've seen.

tigerlillyAnnual Favorite  Sucess!


Every summer for the past 5 years we go up to cool off. The kids love playing in the waterfall on a hot day.

CookieMonsterRidge Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 1996


Took the Ridge Trail to the summit. Loved this trail's open and rocky sections. Continued on to Rocky Mountain Ridge. The 800ft of vertical returning straight up Giant was a #!%@#!

zofonSnowy Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2002
Climbed this mountain for the first time on May 17th, 2002 in the last snow of the season. There was 3" of snow near the top. It was snowing quite hard while I was up top. When its not snowing, its a very nice hike in both winter and summer. It can get crowded in the summer (I saw 70 people on the summit on an August day).

Climbed Giant via the Ridge Trail from Chapel Pond with my brother. We had good weather, and the views were obscured at times by clouds, but they broke once we got on top. A very nice time!

Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2004


Solo hike up Giant. Had a bit too much to drink the night before, so this was a slow, soberingly cold day. Also tagged Rocky Peak Ridge.

Nice Ascent. First time in the winter, had prevously summited during the summer. Light snow made for no views at the summit.
