OnagerMount Redfield  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2013

Onager

Summited Mount Redfield during a 3 day backpacking trip. We came in late in the day from the Upper Works Trailhead and stayed Friday night at one of the Calamity Lean-Tos. In them morning we followed the trail from Lake Colden to Uphill Lean-to and climbed Redfield first, and Cliff second. Stayed the night again and came back the way we started on Sunday Morning. While officially trailess, I would find it difficult to get lost since the herd paths are well defined for both mountains.

Canadian thanksgiving weekend. Summer weather throughout. We left Montreal at 3 pm and started hiking at 7 pm in the dark from South Meadows. We camped at avalanche lake tent site. Next morning we dropped our stuff at Lake Colden and hiked Gray from Lake Tear. First unmaintained trail to summit.The day after, we hiked Redfield from Uphill lean-to and met a lady 46er and her son. Desccended to the fork with the trail to Cliff Mt. An a propos name for that mountain. On the 10th we hiked back to the car and stopped at the Mountaineers in Keene.

Spent the night in the Feldspar Brook Lean-to. Wanted to get Cliff as well, but it took almost 90 minutes (breaking trail the whole way to get to the summit).

Very nice climb, the trail was fairly obvious, thanks to those generous hikers who maintain the herd paths to the "trailless" peaks. About 20 cm of snow at higher altitude, great view, no wind. Perfect! Same conditions applied to her neighbour, Cliff Mtn, though it was muddy at the top.

Finally on a third attemp I was able to summit Redfield.The first failed attempt was a torn tendon,then a bushwhack from Allen turned into just making it out before nightfall.This last attemp was perfect.This summit was well worth all of the effort....JimW

Climbed with Cliff via the Uphill Brook Trail from Tahawus. Herd path is in decent shape; not nearly as bad as Cliff. Had a well-deserved snack on the summit. Had good views looking South as well.

Beautiful views, great weather. Bugs were not too bad. Uphill Brook was roaring with all the recent rain. Enjoyed lunch at the falls after summiting. Hit Cliff on the way out. Big loop through both Arnold and Avalanche Pass by way of ADK Loj.

Hiked with Paul and had to break trail from just past Lake Colden, all the way to the summit of Redfield. Exhausting! And, we still had to get to Cliff! Long and tiring day, but we made it to both. This peak marked #24/46. : )

In all, Redfield's a nice walk. Little blowdown, no false summits, water on the way. Go for Cliff first, then tackle this guy.

Followed a very flagged path (flags die out after 100 yards or so) and then packed trail to the top of Redfield. Annoying as hell in some places! I always seem to get hit in the face with the branches when it gets tight and on this mountain it gets REAL tight. Good luck.

We took the multi-day approach to Redfield, though most people are climbing this as a day trip from ADK Loj or Upper Works. We camped at Lake Arnold.



Following a nicely packed snowshoe trail, this was a straightforward climb to the top. Deep snow meant ducking here and there, but the trail was easy to follow. (See my comments on the route in the "Getting There" section.)



Climb this mountain in the winter! No blowdown tangles at all.



Finally, the views are fantastic from the approach and from the summit.

“I wouldn’t take my worst enemy here.”—Daniel Battin, August 4, 2002

Now what could possibly cause me to utter these words? Climbing Redfield and Cliff Mtns; that’s what! These mountains had more blowdown than any other mountains that I climbed. My hip muscles even cramped up a little bit. I had never had that happen before. These two mountains pushed me to near exhaustion. There were times when I did not think I would succeed. There were also times when my feet did not touch the ground for many minutes due to the massive blowdown.
