gwave47Great View; Long Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2007


It was a very long hike. Coming down the rocky creek beds is very unpleasant on the feet and every few steps it seem as if a rock rolls out from under you. The views were beautiful from the top and it was rather windy and chilly on the summit. Definitely worth the hike.

My first ascent of many. I prefer the approach from Tahawus to the Van Hoevenberg trail...relatively few people and more interesting. It makes for a challenging day hike. Winter Ascent on 12/30/79.

We had a great day on Marcy, even if it did rain on us on the descent. The Daks are a beautiful place and Marcy is a jewel! Check out our report and pics at Natural Born Hikers-Mount Marcy

Had the summit to myself for a good while that day. Cold but clear blue sky and bright sunshine. A great way to start the year!

atavistroad trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 6, 1999


Left Ohio (Marysville) right after work on Friday. Drove to exhaustion and arrived in Lake Placid around 3AM. Woke up by combination of freezing temperatures and approaching dawn. Found my way to the trailhead and started up the 8-10 mile trail around 9AM. Beautiful hike. Ended up scalping a ticket and watching Rage in NYC the same evening. Crashed at Penn State Saturday night and got back to work on Monday morning. Next time, maybe I'll buy an airplane ticket.

It rained for all 5 days that we were in the Adirondacks. Fortunately we got a short break in the rain upon reaching the summit - beautiful views! Please go to http://50summits.blogspot.com to read our trip report.

This mountain is a legacy for me. I climb it everytime i'm in the area, simply wonderful. Beware of wind: Last time i took her summit she blew me off. I fell more then 75 feet. I survived with a bruised chest and ego, but she can whip up a good force when she wants to.

Second time up Marcy, this time in winter. Breaking trail is hard work. Windy above treeline!

Low visibility; lots of wind. Trail was packed through deep snow, to about 5,000 feet, then tracks disappear. The summit snow was hard packed. Did it in showshoes (only a few patches of ice). Too much westerly wind to do Gray, as planned, but we then went on to do Tabletop.

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2003


Another day, another highpoint. Our lust for the summit caused us to ignore the rangers trail "closure" and go for the peak. Strong wind and rain was the problem. Many downed trees - some blew down after we passed them on the way up. Anyway, we made it, and it was fun.

Easier hike than I've come to expect from the 'Dacks. Mostly cloudy and windy, the way winter should be.
Nice to stand on the summit after stopping short on my August Great Range traverse.

Date Climbed: Nov 25, 2006


We did Marcy on 11-25-2006 from South Meadows road. From Indian falls, it was an Icy path and cascade of ice for about 40% of the path to the top. We had a great time on that day. We will come back in winter.

Actually went up 10 times between 1970 and 1975. Backpacked over the top twice. There used to be lean-tos 0.7 and 1.2 miles from the top on the Van Hovenberg side, and there was a lean-to at Lake Tear.

One of the most memorable times was in June 1971, when we went over the top, up Skylight (which I loved) and then out over Gray, and through hip-deep snow back to the Van Hovenberg trail.

Hiked up in a snowstorm. It was quite an epic trying to find the peak without a map and limited views.
