Well back at it.This was the first climb of the year for me.A difficult traverse from rt 73 over Giant and Rocky Peak Ridge onward to rt 9n in sub zero windy conditions with almost zero visibility from blasting snow.Just the way I like it...Jim W

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!

Nice winter hike up Ridge Trail...over to Rocky Peak Ridge, and then back down Roaring Brook. Cloudy days, so no views:(

Most poignant was a lonely backpack over top in 1975. Loved camping at the Washbowl or on Roaring Brook.

Eagle Slide is the Classic class 3 scramble on Giant and one of the better hikes in the dacks. Sweeping views of the entire Great Range when you exit the Brook onto the slide. We included Rocky Ridge Peak for good measure and followed it to Route 9 (two car shuttle). A long and rewarding day.

What a gorgeous mountain and nice hike. This is a gem of a place to find. We were perfectly clear until we got to the summit, then the clouds and rain came, but as soon as we left the summit it cleared up again! Oh well, it was still beautiful!

Climbed with Rocky Peak Ridge via Giant Mountain Trail from Route 73. Had great views of the Dix Range and Noonmark for most of the way up. The summit ledges were crowded but offered an opportunity to cool off in the shade. Rocky Peak Ridge was only an easy two miles out of the way.

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

WinterWarlock

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)

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

PellucidWombat

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!!!
