Cisco1974Lower Wolf Jaw via Marcy Field Parking  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2014

Cisco1974

Today was my first experience parking in Keene Valley. I knew it would be too late so I tried Marcy Field where a shuttle picks people up for $5 (Saturday and Sunday?) and you get a round trip to and from the Garden. I only had to wait a few minutes for the shuttle and got hiking by 9:30 am. The Garden parking lot was full at 6 am according to Gary from Tupper. I tried taking the south side trail but John's Brook was far too high so I bushwacked back to the north side trail and proceeded to John's Brook lodge (which is tiny) and crossed there. The trail up to Lower Wolf Jaw had some amazing slides! I met an experienced older gentleman and his lady (she had finished her 46 the previous day on Basin) and got some cool hiking tips. The guy had a patch for 46er, winter 46er, winter 35er, and he had hiked all of the peaks over 5000 on the east coast. I didn't bring my Nikon DSLR today because it is broken. I think I got it wet (from dripping sweat) and now it will not function properly. As a result my pictures are not as enjoyable as usual. I met some more great people on the peak later in the day. John the mailman had hiked the AT in 2000. I met a couple of young guys who had knocked off 18 peaks this season because one of them was going in the Army to be a 91Bravo which is no longer a medic....it is a diesel mechanic. Anyway I had a great day with little pressure..Thanks again to Gary form Tupper Lake previously from New Jersey for the ride out to Marcy Field from the Garden.....I don't know where the bus was but I would have gotten wet waiting.

Easy summit on the way across the great range. Big drop in elevation between lower and upper Wolf Jaw. Nice easy hike with a gradual climb.

OnagerUpper/Lower Wolfjaw Spring Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2013

Onager

Summited the 30th highest peak in the Adirondacks after summiting its neighbor, Upper Wolfjaw. The trek up from the Upper/Lower Wolfjaw junction was very mixed. We had plenty of ice, rock, soil and wood encounters. This made it a challenge, but overall the trek up was easy. The summit was mostly covered in foliage, but there were spots you could peak out and see the surrounding valleys. Maybe not as nice of a view as its neighbor but still nice. We headed back down to Lake Road after descending Lower Wolfjaw. The trek back was pretty muddy, due to some of it following a brook. We had our fair share of slips on the trail, but made it back to St. Huberts intact.

Did the post-Irene Bennies Brook Slide, which was awesome. Very nice day hike. Though I recommend not doing when it's 95 degrees out like we did!

Nice short climb after doing Gothics, Armstrong, and Upper Woljaw. Mediocre view compared to the others but a nice summit to chill out at. I love these mountains!
