tiogaLast of VT's 4000'ers  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2007


This was the last of the five Vermont 4000+ foot peaks that I summited. However, it was the most disappointing. Not much up there. The views weren't even that good on the day I climbed because of the haze. I also spent $6 on a cup of coffee and brownie at the skiing restaurant.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 1974


We were heading south to north, actually on the AT, and this was a slight side spur. That was a great day, with clouds drifting close at hand. We sure met some bizarre characters on the AT.

Seth MaciejowskiRoute Climbed: Juggernaut Trail Date Climbed: January 1999  Sucess!

We skied up the Juggernaut trail a bunch of years in a row. It's a nice trail to take the cross country skies up being not too steep. The summit block on killington is refreshingly absent of people since it is kind of hidden up and right of the top of the lift lines. The ski down is, naturally, amazing.

dobsonianRoute Climbed: Bucklin Trail->LT/AT->Peak Spur Date Climbed: September 20, 2005  Sucess!


Thought I might have to pass this up till my return trip to Burlington from NJ but the after some downpours in Albany and just outside Rutland I decided to check out the trail head and the showers seemed to have subsided. This was by far the quickest, easiest 4K' ascent in VT until the peak spur which gets somewhat vertical. Book time was 5 hours, I made it in 3:45 with about 5 minutes at the top in the clouds, barely able to see the TV and radio antennas in front of me. Managed to freak out an AT hiker in Cooper Shelter (the only other person I saw up there that day) when I was going to shoot a picture of the building and the door blew open to show him at a table right on the other side. Learned that my new trail runners are no match for wet rock and trashed a pair of Masters poles on the way down. At least I got all the 4000'+ done in VT this summer :-D

Rob ARoute Climbed: Path from highest ski lift Date Climbed: Feb, 2003

Rob A

The first time I skied there I tried to find the summit from the highest ski trail. All I ended up doing is walking in a complete circle for an hour in waist deep snow in ill-fitting ski boots. It was snowing and I could not see for sh*t. maybe 10 ft.
