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

sherpapeaks

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!!!

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.

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...

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.

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

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!

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.

I think this was my favorite hike of the (9) 4,000 ers that I did. I enjoyed the scrambling up the rock faces and my feet stayed dry the entire time.

Saved this one for the fall so I could hopefully see some nice fall colors. Good God did that strategy work out! Amazing sights from this mountain showing the Adirondacks in their fall best. Outstanding clear day. Got an early start and beat the crowds going up while I was going down. Really was just an outstanding day.
