Completed objective by summiting after Algonquin. The trail was pretty "heinous" as Doug my hiking partner put it because of the wet and sloppy conditions. But it was a great ending to summiting of 3 peaks. Slighty less windy than Algonquin summit but still no visibility and rainy.

This was by far my favorite peak.... I love the solitude, and the grueling trek up to it gave me such an element of drive. The views are remarkable and its absolutely peaceful.

I decided to take the Avalanche Pass route because I didn't enjoy the route up Algonquin the first time I climbed up there. Last time I got turned around on my way to Iroquois from Algonquin by a thunderstorm.
I loved the trail when I got past the uphill portion into Avalanche pass! There was a mountain of debris from previous slides and the trail was to me the most gorgeous trail I had seen to that point and I would have to say is only thus far rivaled by the views near the summit of Gothics. After 6 or more miles of hiking in from the Loj (I cannot stop pronouncing it Louge) I reached the base of the climb. It was the most challenging I have encountered in the Adirondacks. I had a hard time. The good thing about it was that it went up all at once so the hard part was over before I realized it and I reached the summit of Boundary. I was wiped out and Iroquois looked very far away....it wasn't. It took about 20 more minutes to get up it. Hiking up Algonquin felt awful...like I said I was wiped. I did get a fantastic reward on top when I encountered a foursome of Ravens chastising one another over some serious matter and occasionally catching the stiff wind coming up the Marcy side of the peak to take a momentary glide. It was stimulating! Bernd Heinrich refers to Ravens as wolf birds in his books the Mind of the Raven and Ravens in Winter. They are magnificent animals that deserve a greater respect than many give. Ravens are a treat on these peaks enjoy them.

Took thirty two minutes from the summit of Algonquin to Iroquois. They have vastly improved the walkways over the mountain bog area.

Summited Iroquois Peak on a sunny & chilly day towards the end of the summer season. We started at the Loj at 8:30AM and went up and over Algonquin Peak, over Boundary Peak, and finally got to the summit of Iroquois around 12:00PM. We backtracked up Algonquin again, summited Wright, and then finally called it a day reaching the car around 6:00PM.

w/ Wright and Algonquin. The muddy, overgrown path from Algonquin was worth the peace and solitude I got on Iroquois. Great three-fer and highly recommended.

finally trekked over to Iroquois from Algonquin, having decided not to do it the last two times. Great peak with more solitude than her big sister Algonquin.

Loved it! Crisp snow, clear skies, calm winds, and solitude on the summit...priceless. Climbing over Algonquin twice...not so priceless.

Hiked in from Loj, over Algonquin and back to Wright. Some mud pits along herd path. Nice open ridgeline across Boundary Peak. Splendid views from quiet summit on Iroquois.

I went up Algonquin and then over Boundary. It wasn't bad at all. I returned the same way. Not too bad a day weather wise. Sort of cloudy, but still had the views. This was my 30th of the 46.
