AjellodudeClimbed with Giant  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 1, 2009


Reached this summit first from Ridge Trail. Very windy and cloudy, which sucks because I've heard the view is amazing. Welcomed by a huge cairn at the top. Then went over to Giant and down Roaring Brook

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2008


An Adirondack Classic in my book. Hiked from the East with the fall foliage at peak. Everything about this hike is great. The elevation gain is challenging and Bald peak is very very cool. The summit of RPR has some of the best views in the Dack's in my opinion.

Climbed with Giant via Giant Mountain Trail from Route 73. Although most hikers only go up to Giant, Rocky Peak Ridge is a much better mountain in my book. The views were fantastic; we could see all of the Eastern Adirondacks and even the Green Mountains across Lake Champlain. Nice to cool off in Chapel Pond after a hot day!

Bark Eater

Climbed from Chapel Pond over Giant and then down the ridge to the East. Giant was packed. Only a few other hikers on RPR. Fine, clear day and a bit warm. My poor dog Koira made her last long climb. She decided she had enough hiking with about five miles to go. There was quite a bit of carrying to get her down the mountain. Not to worry, the old girl has since recovered fine!

Hiked with Paul for peak #20/46. Light snow/flurries most of the day with no views from the top. : ( Still a fun peak. Steep getting back to the trail junction for Giant. Challenging hike for the calves! : )

I left my family on the main trail to the summit of Giant and scrambled/jogged over to this summit and back. Round trip was about 40 minutes of huffing and puffing to get out some unspent energy!

Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2007


I didn't have a hiking partner for the day, so I hiked up Giant and decided to head over to Rocky Peak Ridge while I was up there. I wasn't very impressed with the view from Giant, but the view from the backside of RPR was amazing. I found a nice big rock to eat lunch on and just sat there for a while enjoying the view and the silence.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 1996


Agree that this peak doesn't get enough credit. I liked the little lake visible from the summit and feeling of isolation. Always wanted to come back and climb this from the East during the Fall.

Hit this up after doing Giant. Was all by myself the whole day. Cold down low, nice and frosty up high. There were a few leaves on the trees. Great day.

Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2007


Hit the summit of Giant Mt then followed the foot path over to Rocky Peak Ridge. Our group (of 8) decided that in the col between the two, we would bushwack down to the washbowl. As the creek was not frozen, we 'whacked through some thick brush. Overall a good time was had, and we surprised three other hikers coming down Giant by trampling right out onto the trail from the woods in front of them.

The OgreGiant and RPR via Ridge Trail, 2/06  Sucess!

The Ogre

Long sections of water ice on the Ridge Trail. I started late, met several groups coming down while I was going up. Had Giant and RPR to myself. Nice! Light snow limited the views to a few miles, but views of Dix, Nippletop and the Lower Great Range were amazing. View of Giant's backside from RPR was well worth the hike over.

Date Climbed: May 20, 2006


Might was well bag it since it's so close to Giant. I'm wondering now if I could have just followed the brook that runs between Giant and Rocky and skipped the climb back up Rocky.

Did this one on a foggy day, 100-ft visibility, but it made for a fascinating krummholz world along the summit ridge. Very celtic. Will do again to get the views. 700-ft drop from Giant's summit to saddle makes for an active day (in the rain!).
