January '08 - I'm never really sure I've hit this peak until I'm over it and looking back at it from UWJ.
Went up first after setting up camp; then tagged it again after doing Gothics
From the Rooster Comb parking area to Basin and down to Slant Rock along the Gothic Ridge.
Solo trip. The ascent from the Wolf Jaw col is a very steep 1/2 mile....at least that's what I remember.
CLimbed as part of Lower Great Range Traverse..
Good day.Also climbed it in July,but it rained all that day.Veiws from the wooded summit were better than I anticipated
hiked as part of great range
nice hike,,but wasn't impressed with the view,,just another off the list.
Took deer brook trail, to white trail...breaking the whole way. So it took a lot longer than expected to travel the 4.5 miles. Still made it though, pretty decent views.
Most memorable time was in the height of black fly season; I waited for other members of party for 2 hours, nearly went crazy. They came back to find me running through the woods, wearing a poncho wrapped tight around my body.
Hiked along with part of the Great Range
My first time to the Adirondacks. Very cool area - much different from the desert I live in. :)
Hiked in solo with full pack at 4:30am while it was still dark. Sun was up before I made it to Hedgehog. I had meant to take the more direct route that avoids the long trip past Snow, Rooster Comb, and over Hedgehog, but I made a wrong turn and caused myself a lot more work and lost time. High Peak #9.
Did this from Rooster Comb trailhead as part of a Great Range attempt but unfortunately our SteriPEN busted and we had to abandon the plan.
Climbed with Upper Wolf Jaw via Range Trail from the Ausable Club. Decent views of the Great Range and a cooling breeze were the rewards after this hike on a hot late-August day.
Great Mountain. We got lucky and spotted a Pine Martin up on the summit. That was a first.
I climbed this with my father over Thanksgiving in 1996 (give or take a year). The only thing I remember about this peak is its name.
My first time out in the BC. It was a fun experience and i learned a lot about BC Skiing. Bennies slide is defiantly worth the effort to ski. Didn't get up very far due to avi. danger but a great day out non the less.
This was my first trip to the Dack's. Hiked with a buddy and his brother-in-law in fresh now. Great intro to the mountains, was an effort in the snow.
The last of 5 peaks in a day. Tiring, but a sense of accomplishment. Wet, muddy, slick but nice hiking. 11/46
