MikeWRoute Climbed: Van Hoevenberg trail Date Climbed: February, 2005  Sucess!


Did it with my touring skis. Beautiful day with lots of sun and the snow was good. Great skiing on the way down, a little bit dangerous for the people going up though. The summit cone was icy, should have brought my ski crampons.

this was the wettest climb ever. We couldn't see more than 15 ft. any of the three days we spent on Marcy, except for one weather window which happened at Marcy dam ; which is beatiful. still good to see another part of the country though, even if only alittle of it.

This is a wonderful hike for the east coast, almost up to west coast standards.

We packed into the dam, and camped there, then did the climb the next morning. Full day experience with a stop at Indian falls.

The mosquites on the hike to and from the dam were very bad!

Read the trip report.

We stayed overnight at the Opalescent brook shelter and went for Sklight then Marcy in snowy conditions. The weather cleared only after we had begun our descent toward Haystack. The top seemed nice. It seems like every adirondack high peak we have been on has either been snowy or had no visibility except maybe whiteface. Oh well. That's the daks for you.

Long hike, but worth it. Terrific views from top! Windy on summit. Last two miles of trail were wet and muddy.

Spent two cold days bagging the High Peaks. Hit Algonquain, Coldon and Gray, spent a brutally cold night in a lean-to then hit Skylight, Marcy and Phelps. We were past peak for the foliage thus making this a cold overcast and gloomy adventure.

Duane Gilliland and I hiked Marcy on a 7-state highpointing swing through the northeast. It was the day after the hurricane remnants passed through the area, so it was very wet and windy, however the weather was fine otherwise. After the hike our rental wouldn't run due to electrical problems. Even with a jump, when turning the ignition switch everything went dead, and we had no power of any kind. We made good use of the pay phones at the Adirondack Loj and the AMC station at the TH, but our replacement vehicle wasn't delivered until after noon the following day, destroying our carefully planned agenda. Much enjoyed my first trip to up-state NY.

Our group from the Catskills hiked all the way around the base of Mount Marcy in the rain, before tackling the summit in good weather. I was sure homesick as an 11-year-old on my first journey away from home and family. The lakes were eerily quiet (from acid rain). Good view from the top.

This hike (7.5 miles, 3000 feet in under 4 hours) convinced me that I could climb all 46 Adirondack High Peaks. After reaching Marcy, I climbed nearby Skylight, and Gray.

My first time and a lovely day. I have been there now several times and it is always a pleasure. Though my favorite trip was one Feb. day- a group of us came over from Grey.

Nasty weather. Previous night temperature hung around 32 degrees. Precipitation varied from one minute to the next - snow to rain to mist to ice to slush to just not pleasant. Went for the summit on the morning of the 23rd. Weather was moving in, temperatures were dropping like a rock. Reached the summit before noon. It was so windy, the wind would blow my leg around so much I couldnt place my crampons where I wanted to! Great trip, unfortunately no views.

Absolutely gorgeous day - Sunny, light winds, 35-40. Started off in dark at 5:45, reached summit at 11:00 with a few stops. First to reach summit that day, passed about 20 people on the way down.
