Not sure when I did this one but it must have been somewhere in 2010. I am from New York and climbed a lot of those in the Adirondacks and Catskills. Just decided to do the 50 peaks so figured I should log this. It would have been my first I think.

punchline

Thought that starting at 6:00am I would beat the crowds ... boy was I wrong - definately a favorite route (Van H. from the Loj) and a favorite summer climb in the area. The summit steward estimated there would be easily several hundred to summit by afternoon. Didn't spend a lot of time on top but the views were amazing. A few idiots on the trail, especially the party of four that ran out of water about 0.1 mile from the summit so they all stopped, took off all their gear and sat in the middle of the trail and were pumping/filtering from the muddy, algae-ridden trickle that was running down the middle of the trail - UGH!

Set off at 6am from the Loj. Long, strenuous hike that never got totally oppressive but tests your constitution throughout. A little light scrambling but mostly upright. Really enjoyed talking to the steward at the top. Knowledgeable and friendly. Fantastic views but I was on a time limit. Total hike took just under nine hours.

Half the trail was covered in 2-2.5 ft of snow. The center of the trail was mostly well-packed but severe postholing on either side the entire way up. We climbed in only hiking boots but snowshoes would have helped a ton. Great spring weather!

After my 1st attempt was thwarted by stormy weather, I came back a year later to finish the job. Weather was ideal this time with great views of the fall colors from the peak.

Solo hike. Beautiful weather... hiked in from the South Meadow trailhead. I met a group of very nice University of Mount Union students at the top.

Brads79Hike from Loj to Marcy Without Summiting

The snowshoe ascent was uneventful despite the weather being ugly. Snow fell most of the day. I estimate we were approximately 300 meters from the summit with 3 to 6 meters of visibility. Whiteout conditions above tree-line. We "rescued" a hiker who had been stumbling around near the summit for 45-minutes. My buddy and I decided to turn back rather than risk getting lost. Overall, a nice but cold weekend in the Adirondacks.

Very nice hike. The wind was a bit mean on top! No snowshoes required on the trails, but summit somewhat icy.

Great climb with my buddy Supertramp with me. Hiked into Marcy dam and camped for the night. Temps got down into the high 20's, good way to start. Took about 4 hours to summit but we stopped at Indian falls for a bit. Great weather but wanted to see a bear. Oh well!

Incredibly strong winds at the summit, maybe 70-75 mph. Enough to push me around and make it hard to stand but just a really great hike. No views that day but the Maples and Fall colors helped make up for it.

Climbed this and made it to the summit with my best friend and climbing partner Chris and his sister Kimberly under perfect weather. I don't remember the exact date except that it was in October 2005. We lost all of our pictures. :-(

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2014
Been trying to get to this for a few years.. finally had a chance to stop by on trip home from Canada. While the summit was socked-in as I headed up... I was lucky to find the low clouds had lifted by the time I got to the top! Was a bit cold & windy at the top.. but the views were great! Bagging Marcy (#37) leaves 13 peaks... all west of the Mississippi...

Parked at the Garden parking lot which was almost full at 6:40am on a Saturday. Paid $7 and left on on the John Brook's trail at 6:50. Got to the top by 10:00, stayed a half hour and got back to the Garden lot by 13:30. Had perfect weather.

Van Hoevenberg Trail with approx 8 am start time. We got very lucky with the weather - never got rained on despite the forecast. Very windy on top but beautiful views. Quite muddy and a lot of high water down low, snow conditions pretty favorable up high. Used microspikes and some postholing was unavoidable. Long day, 9.5 hours total.

Really frigid, 40 mph winds blowing over the top and encrusted in rime. Really gorgeous views but too cold to take my gloves off to work my camera. And now I've got 25 state HP's checked off, only 25 to go!
