last peak which we did by accident after marcy/haystack and basin in one day without enough water- first introduction to scrambling - scared me a bit but looking back - glad I did it.

Hiked to Saddleback for Number Eight with the brother and sister after hitting Basin. This is a fun climb, although quite steep and a tad nerve-wracking at times. Some nice scrambles.



I wanted to do Gothics real bad, but time ran out for us. There's always next time.

This is one rough hike by usual standards for maintained trails. The trail can be somewhat difficult to follow in cetain places along Ore Bed Brook. The upper reaches of the ADK Range trail on this peak are closer to 3rd class scrambling than to a walk-up.

Views are average for the high peaks (which is still good), but the climb is scary steep and a blast to make. A 100' rock climb that is pretty scary, but alot of fun.



I would plan for an ascent of the west face instead of a descend, particularly with packs. It pretty steep, and borders on Rock climbing instead of hiking for about 100' of the ascent.
