forgues9999Detour to Wright
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2010


Goal was Iroquois, but started late in day and hit icy patches on Algonquin (no crampons). So detour to Wright, and no complaints from me.

Perfect weather. About a foot of snow on the ground, but the trail was pretty well compacted, having microspikes was very helpful.

fridayIcy, but manageable  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2009


As part of a return trip to Algonquin. The hike up to the turn off was a bit icy in some parts from the October snowfalls melting and refreezing overnight. After the turnoff to the summit of Wright, the trail was more icy, although hikers were still making it without any extra gear. I used crampons, and these worked the best for the conditions. Above the treeline, it was just bare rock most all the way to the summit.
Great views of Algonquin. Never did find the b-47 crash, but didn't look hard for it either.

A beautiful day below the tree line, but the wind was biting on the summit. The snow on the trail was packed down, so snowshoes were not necessary for most of it.

Stayed one night at Loj, then snowshoed to both peaks. I used ice crawlers on hard-pack. We passed two guys with crampons and ice axes.

POLUKOWintery hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 29, 2008


Great hike following a snowstorm. Did it with microspikes and the summit was a little hairy. Wished I brought my crampons. Otherwise the spikes were ideal.

Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2007


Pretty bad day weather-wise. Wind was incredible on the summit, enough to knock me down a few times. No sign of the B-52 as visability was an issue.

Climbed with Algonquin and Iroquois via the McIntyre Range Trail from the Adirondack Loj. Amazing views of the Great Range and Algonquin. Wright's summit is perhaps one of the most beautiful of the 46. Checked out the plane crash site. Not a lot to see. The plane engine is still there though.
