ColinzeyeSouthside from the Flowed Lands  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2014

Colinzeye

Hiked in from the Loj early morning and set up camp by 1:30 at the south side tent sites of Lake Colden. After lunch, made a quick ru up the South side of Colden. Steep trail with a little ice, the pouring rain and cold summit temps made it tough. But on the way down, about 11 vertical feet from the summit, the sun broke for a few minutes blessing us with a perfect view of the flowed lands and Lake Colden in the valley. Not bad for the 1st of 46.

Backpacked in from the Adirondack Loj on April 5th and spent the night at Lake Arnold. The Lake Arnold campsite was well above 3500' and very cold this time of the year. We awoke at 8:30am and summited nearby Mount Colden 4715' from Lake Arnold. The weather was clear and sunny, but still cold enough to require winter clothing and snowshoes. We arrived at the summit around 10:30am after climbing several false peaks. We headed back down the trail to Lake Arnold, melted snow for water, and packed up our tent and other gear. We made the 6 miles trek back down from Lake Arnold to the Loj with 45 lbs. of gear on each of our backs. The trip was quite the experience! Round trip we hiked over 16 miles.

Free soloed the Trap Dike and slabs to the top. No view, almost white out conditions. It snowed all day and there was a consistent 30 mph wind.

Beautiful day, relatively dry conditions. The trip up the dike was fantastic. Views near the top were great.

Great hike and the Trap Dike pretty straightforward if you do your research. Next time I will have to go down the slide on the other side.

By far, the greatest way to climb this mountain. Done it twice and would do it a third if I get the chance again!

A loop hike from South Meadows TH to summit, down via Lake Colden/Avalanche Lake. Fall colors were nice, Avalanche Lake is one of the most breathtaking spots in the High Peaks.

Winter camping in the daks. Stayed at a lean to on lake Colden. Ascent was simple, but nice weather turned bad towards the summit, and the views were obstructed.

This was a tough hike.It was pouring rain,so the dike was really floeing hard.I was debating on climbing it,but friends from NYC said lets go for it.Lets just say that I made my peace with God that day.The only route was straight through the crashing cold water.At times I though that I was gonna bite the big one,but all worked out.We pushed our way up and then exited too late ending up bushwhacking to the summit.This was probably the best adventure that I've done yet.It really made me feel alive....Jim Wallace

Moose023Avalanche Pass to Lake Arnold route...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009
Hiked via Avalanche Pass, Colden summit, Lake Arnold to Marcy Dam loop. Great day even though the entire summit was boxed in with a heavy mist that prevented us from getting any real great views. A rainy day in the 'daks is better than a sunny day at work and I guess we'll just have to do it again in nicer weather...
