starship_jenVan Hoevenberg  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2006


It was raining but we went anyway! My friend and I hiked the Van Hoevenberg Trail to the top. We met a nice guy from Ottawa on the trail who hiked the rest of the way up with us. Cold, rainy, and extremely windy at the summit. Didn't stay at the top for long! Soggy, wet, and cold, but HP #21!

danny-boyTough early winter hike from the Loj  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 3, 2005


Great hike but I felt brutal! I had harly slept for 9 months - new baby :) - and had the flu. I thought I was going to die. Still worth it though. To top it off the State Troopers pulled me over for speeding (5 over the limit) just as my legs finally rebelled and cramped to punish me for the day I'd given them.

Climbed from the Loj on a day hike. My compliments to the trail crews who obviously spent a lot of time working on the trail. Was stuck in the clouds on yet another summit. #23 on my state highpoint list

IlafanRain for 18 consecutive hours!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2006


We went to Marcy blind...no campsite, no directions, no clue about New England mountains. A nice guy from Lake Placid directed us to a free campsite off of South Meadow Road. We started the hike early in the morning and reached the windy, foggy, awesome top about five hours later. Then the rain started. It rained for 18 straight hours, and the descent from the summit made for a slow, slippery experience. Exhausted but proud, we finished New York's highpoint 8.5 hours after starting.

The Ogre

Actually, I've climbed Marcy thrice - once long ago as a Boy Scout, and soloed it twice so far in 2006 (Mid-March with Skylight/Gray from the Loj, and May as part of a Great Range traverse from the Garden).

8th of 8 highpoints in 48 hrs. and thats including delaware. fell into snow up to my waist in late may, so be prepared. and if you leave before its light, pay close attention to the signs. we took a wrong turn about 100 yds in and wandered around on cross-country ski trails for an hour.

KoonsyRoute: Van Hoevenberg


Cold, wet, and turned windy day and the trail had steady running water. As we became more exposed to the wind we played it safe and turned around. Still a pretty fun hike despite a missed summit.

Had a great time on Marcy. Did it with just crampons and a ice axe and did just fine. Amazeing day with gear views.

Preface this by saying this was in my college days:

Did this whole hike on LSD- It was amazing at times and really tough other times. I was working on the ADK 46ers in college and got a real job in CA so I was taken away from the area with only 28 of the high peaks done. Gothics and Colden were my favorites. Tough to go back after climbing in the west.

Soloed for highpoint #4; summit completely clouded-in. Only cleared up when I was too far back down. Glad to have returned 3 years later in perfect weather & great views.
