I went from Connery Pond/Whiteface Landing. I like this trail much better than the Wilmington trail. It's pretty level all the way to the lean-to, then you march up the mountain. There was no mud, or slick rock, or overly rocky trail to be dealt with, which is a rarity in the Daks. I liked going up the rock above treeline to the summit, it reminded me a lot of a NH mountain. Not that many people at all for a saturday. It was a cloudy day, but no rain.

Went up the Connery Pond Trail, down the ski slopes, and then road run back to the car at Connery Pond. Great mix of hiking and running.

Climbed via the Wilmington Trail from the Wilmington Reservoir. It must have been the hottest day of the year. There were crouds swarming around the summit but we were just trying to cool off. We were almost tempted to catch a ride down but stuck it out in the end. Ran out of water during the last mile back to Wilmington.

MattGreeneIce Palace  Sucess!
Loved the ice palace at the top. The summit lodge was totally deserted, and completely covered in rime ice. It was surreal, like something out of a fantasy.

Brian PierzMy Buddy's 46th  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007

Took the trail from Connery Pond to Whiteface Landing, then on up. About halfway we bushwhacked to the top of the brook, and hiked/climbed the slide all the way up. It was tough in spot due to wet rocks, and my advice is to stay to the left when it looks like there are two slides. The headwall was intimidating, but our fearless leader took his 46th in style, right over the front of it, leaving me down below shaking in my boots. If you go to the right it's not too bad, but not easy either.

Sherpa Chris and Sarah joined in, and as is custom, we celebrated with UBU ales at the LPPB.

This was #14 for me.

Did this one with my parents and brother when I was 13 years old. Don't remember much about it, except on the hike down my Mom was thinking the best way down would have been to roll down!

Revamped my post from stating that I drove to the top in 2002. Now I have actually climbed it via the Wilmington Trail from the Science Center. The top was pretty fogged over, but there were some slight views to Esther Peak, but nothing toward Lake Placid. Also, a very hot day.

Took the family canoe from Paradox Bay on Lake Placid. Foggy morning and COLD (for August) on the trail. Fearing hypothermia, the only reason that I kept going was because the structures on top were closer. Continued to Esther. The clouds broke on the way back from Esther, making for nice view from Whiteface on the return. Sunny skies for the paddle back. Whiteface sure looks impressive from the North end of Lake Placid.

I admit that we cheated and took the elevator back up from Esther. Lame.

Tough hike in DEEP snow!! Took longer than expected, but we made it to the top and I snowshoed down the auto road while the others skied down. Cleared off enough for great views from the top. Windy and cold! Thanks Paul & Rick!! : )

Wow, I love this mountain!
Almost didn't make it after breaking trail in knee to waist deep snow for five hours... We turned around about 1 mile from the summit and right then, the dudes from the lean-to came up and started to break trail! it was awesome. at this point we turned back around and made it! thanks to the dudes in the lean-to!

Took seven hours to summit to go four miles!

climbed from the south from the Whiteface Landing on Lake Placid, awesome trail but seldom used.

Temps on summit were 5 degrees with about 30 mph winds -20 wind chill
My fifth winter summit!
