TahawusMount Skylight  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2006


Climbed with Gray via the Uphill Brook Trail from Tahawus. My final peak of the forty-six and a great finish to a multi-day trek. We arrived at the summit of Skylight's beautiful grassy dome around noon on what might have been the finest day of the year. Fantastic views of Marcy, Haystack and Panther Gorge abound. Don't forget to bring a stone to the summit cairn!

Take a small stone to the top to appease the weather gods. It's supposed to bring good weather, although I'm not sure if that means snow, ice, or sun in the Adirondacks.

This can be a bonus to a day climb of Marcy from the south, but makes for a long day!

After climbing over Haystack the day before and sleeping in Panther Gorge is ungodly rain. We woke to a beautiful day and went up Skylight. It was an incredible summit, so open.

Did both Marcy and Skylight at night. I don't remember seeing much. It was a bit dark. Were on the summit at about 11pm. Good times.

Tagged the summit on the way to Marcy. No views (clouded over), but had fun leaning into the wind while balancing on a boulder on the summit.

rasgoatExcellent winter ascent!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2007


Along with Nartreb, hiked up Skylight in no visibility with about 30 mph winds. Good rime on trees and rock.

Easy hike, (not the approach but the mountain itself). even in winter

We hiked up and got some views to the south on skylight. There was a lot of snow on the ground. We spotted a pine marten at the trail junction below the summit before heading up Marcy which afforded no views, but had lots of ice and snow.

pmlupiRoute Climbed: Via Avalance Pass Date Climbed: October 13, 1996  Sucess!


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.

climber46Route Climbed: Hiking Trail from the north Date Climbed: Sept 10, 2000  Sucess!


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. The view of Marcy to the north from Skylight is aesthetically pleasing.

Always a great day. In the summer part of three peak extravaganza. In winter I did Grey, then Marcy and then Skylight.

I've discovered a secret reward.......high quality provolone cheese. Keep it airtight and cool.
