ColinzeyeHurricane?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2014

This was a great climb....the winds were fierce, 70mph+. But as usual it was worth it. The hike from the dam was mot bad and I really liked the unique vies of Marcy and Gonk. Not a bad treed summit. Too bad the weather was such a bear, I was looking forward to a day that would include TT and Marcy. But settling for Phelps and a nude dip in the Phelps Brook(?) by the HighWater Bridge made the day great.

Cold, blustery day with tons of ice on the trail and still loads of fun! Pretty awesome view, although it was my first summit so perhaps my opinion is biased....met some great folks along the trail, as always!

Hiked Phelps Mountain 4161' early, starting at 5:30am from the Adirondack Loj. Trail was great and packed down so we opted not to use snowshoes. The way up was easy compared to many of the peaks I've done and was enjoyable after the difficult ascent of Mount Washington, NH last week. The view at the summit was spectacular, with clear shots of Marcy to the left and Algonquin to our right. Clear blue skies with a temp. around 38F at the Loj. A great start to the weekend.

Not exactly sure of the month I did this one, but it was a side hike after a failed attempt to climb Marcy with the wrong gear. I learned the hard way!

The first real peak I climbed, along with Tabletop on the same weekend. A great start with the leadership and inspiration of a great Scout leader. (Check the photo of my genuine "Dear Grace" letter (in green ink, of course!)

A cold wintery hike that took about 3 hours. The snow was light by the dam and the temp was hovering in the low 30's. The summit accumulated about 9'' of snow and the temp dropped into the teens. A nice hike to break into the cold weather.

During my descent from Mount Marcy, I took this short side-hike to Phelps Mountain. Nothing special; just another peak.

apeAborted Great Range traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 25, 2012
Started at 2am from the Loj for a Great Range traverse. Weather was decent enough until we crossed treeline. Atop Marcy there was 20-30ft visibility, high winds, and very slick rocks -- not at all safe traverse weather! We turned back, hit Phelps on the way back, and took a (freezing!) dip in the river just above Marcy Dam.

My first trip up to the High Peaks after the storm, trails were in good condition. Nice views from summit. Spent time hopping around in Phelps Brook on the way down, poked around mostly dried up Marcy Dam, then off to the Cascade Lakes for kayaking.

Hiked up Phelps Mt today. Excellent weather, great views and hundreds of very hungry blackflies! 8 miles, 5 hours and stopped to take plenty of pictures and ate lunch at the summit.

This was my first High Peak ever and first winter summit. It was tougher than I expected but the summit has a great view. No people at all, my favorite thing.

Skied out to Avalanche Lake and figured I would grab this peak on the way back. I did, but it was a pretty tiring day.
