from Beaver Meadow  Sucess!

I took the Beaver Meadow trail, after the West River trail to get to Armstrong. From there a did a loop of the Wolf Jaws to get back to St. Huberts. I met some nice hikers, including a woman backpacker who was with me on the summits of Armstrong and Upper Wolf Jaw.

What a view  Sucess!

Did this as part of a loop. Nice sunny day. A few people up on top with us, but still nice and peaceful. Pretty easy peak to check off the list.

Packed, Icy  Sucess!

Did this from Gothics. The Range trail was well packed, no snowshoes are needed, but a couple spots are icy and you will be served well by wearing crampons.

Armstrong (twice so far...)  Sucess!

Climbed in 1/06 as part of a Sawteeth/Lower Great Range traverse, and in 5/06 as part of a Great Range traverse from Marcy to WJ Gap. During the 1/06 climb, injured my right hand while glissading. Still hurts from time to time...

Route Climbed: from Gothics Date Climbed: Oct 5 2003  Sucess!

Started at St Huberts, went up Gothics, then down the great range hitting Armstrong, Upper and Lower Wolfjaw. Great fall colors!. Early snow & ice made it kind of treacherous.

Did 4 new winter summits this day and Upper Wolf Jaw twice. Solo- but hey, it is the Great Range and I had lots of boy scouts up there to break the trails in.

Summer hike was part of my first hike in the 'Dacks

Actually the second time I bagged this peak as the first time I couldn't find the real summit. This time I found it. Weather was terrible.

Route Climbed: Range Trail from Upper Wolf Jaw Date Climbed: September 25, 2004  Sucess!

Second of three, from Upper Wolf Jaw then onto Gothics. Tackled this one with the ROTM gang: Mike, Tom, Mr. Baio, and Chris.

Nice views at the top, and a good spot for lunch. I recommend Triscuts, a pepperoni or smoked sausage stick, and cheese.
