Bill Jirousek

I did this one during buggy season one year with the Boy Scouts. We were spread out along the trail but I could tell where everyone was by the clouds of black flies hovering above certain sections of trail.

Not sure what route I climbed, I was following a more experienced guy whose whiteface summit was his last for 46! There were women in bikinis on top!! (I think they took the elevator...)

Very nice hike, it demands a constant effort and a lot of water, but the view on the summit is superb on a clear day... well if you don't look at the tons of people coming by car.

kevsmithRoute Climbed: Wilmington Trail from the reservoir Date Climbed: July 10, 2004  Sucess!


Warm day, consumed a lot of water. The hike in from the reservoir is moderate, recommend grabbing Esther on the way. One of my favorite parts was the wall along the highway, and the final tenths of a mile to the summit are suspenseful. The top was swarmed, 50 people or so, high tourist area, most drove of course. Still the views on Lake Placid and the High Peaks in the distance are well worth it. I descended the longer way to Connery Pond, for a different experience.

Wierd to have throngs of tourists eating packed lunches. They couldn't figure out why someone would hike that mountain...

climber46Route Climbed: Old Marble Mtn Ski Area Approach/Wilmington Trail Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2000  Sucess!


I am proud to say that I have never reached Whiteface's summit by car or chairlift. I have only hoofed it to the top to the 'amazement' of the tourists at the top. This hike had many great views and was a worthwhile hike. I definitely recommend the Marble Mtn approach as it shortens the approach to the mountains by almost one mile.
