Route Climbed: ADK Range Trail; trail up the north side Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2001
In spite of the fact that it was getting late in the day, My friend and I continued our hike from Basin to Haystack because I told him I did not want to trek in from the Garden again just to get Haystack. So we plodded on, up a rocky trail, over little Haystack, and finally up the rest of Haystack, one of only a few ADK mountains that are truly above treeline. The views were outstanding but I ran out of film on Basin. We got back to the Garden over an hour after sunset.
