Date Climbed: Apr 27, 2013


Summited Macomb Mountain 4405' during a 2 night backpacking trip out in the Dix Range of the Adirondacks. We left our campsite at Slide Brook and followed the heard path that was marked with cairns to the base of the first rock slide around 8:45am. We summited the rock slide carefully, using our ice axes and crampons on some of the iced over sections. We made it to the summit around 10:15.

In June '78 I knocked-off 5 peaks with my Scout Troop and a great leader that hooked me on wilderness adventures (Dix, East Dix, South Dix, Hough and McComb)

Elk Lake. Laid down camp. Hoofed up Macoumb's slide in shoes shoes. too lazy to pull out the crampons. it was a little sketchy.
Hoofed it over to South Dix. Gentle snow fall. Quite pretty. Beautiful ice waterfall on the top of the slide.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2011


First ADK slide climb went great. Weather was hot but partly cloudy and views were great from the slide and summit! After hiking Dix last month I'm really starting to like the Dix Range, I'll go back to get the others soon.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 1996


Summitted this peak with my friend John Bousman (has first ascents in Washington, BC, and Alaska). We took a slide up then came over to another headwall and climbed it (4th class). This was my first alpine rock climb. Then over to the Dix's. Great day

EnapaiHerds Path to New Slide  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2009


Went back to tag Macomb after cutting my March trip short. I was joined by my brother who had done Macomb as part of a Dix Range traverse before the hurricane. We decided to continue following Slide Brook down past the herds path (hopefully all the way to the marked trail). The blowdown along the brook gets very thick. I would strongly encourage taking the herds path. Still nothing like a little adventure in the woods.

Climbed the slide from north, then went on to other Dixes. Wasn't much of a trail back then; bad blow-downs in one section.

I has been a while since I've been to Macomb. The trail was pretty wet. Our dog (Guinness) flushed a rabbit on the way back that was about as big as she is.

Climbed with South Dix, East Dix and Hough via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Going up the slide was a blast. Once we were over around 3000' a sea of clouds was at our feet. The summit boasted some great views of surrounding High Peaks.
