with other Dixes  Sucess!

Climbed the slide from north, then went on to other Dixes. Wasn't much of a trail back then; bad blow-downs in one section.

Macomb  Sucess!

Rugged peak with a cool slide. Did this with the rest of the Dix Range.

It's been a while ...  Sucess!

I has been a while since I've been to Macomb. The trail was pretty wet. Our dog (Guinness) flushed a rabbit on the way back that was about as big as she is.

Macomb Mountain  Sucess!

Climbed with South Dix, East Dix and Hough via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Going up the slide was a blast. Once we were over around 3000' a sea of clouds was at our feet. The summit boasted some great views of surrounding High Peaks.

Last of the 5 peak string  Sucess!

Finished the Dix Range by summiting Macomb. Excited to have made all 5 peaks! Tough trip. Exhausting 22 hours in total. STEEP slide on the way out! #36/46! : )

Route Climbed: herd path near slide brook to new slide Date Climbed: May 30, 2004  Sucess!

Tough hike with all the blown down trees on the herd path. Slide climb was most enjoyable section of mountain I've climbed in the ADK.

Route Climbed: slide brook to slide Date Climbed: september 17 2002  Sucess!

Jayne fell in the streambed and yelled she was telling her mother that I was trying to kill her. Took her awhile to chill out. She was pissy because she wanted to follow a false herdpath. Sometimes the women are smarter. Sometimes not.

Route Climbed: Herd Path/New Slide Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2001  Sucess!

On Sept 16, 2001, I drove to the Elk Lake trailhead to climb the Dix Mtn Range. I started out by climbing the Macomb Slide. The blowdown was annoying but the slide climb was wonderful. This is the view of Elk Lake from the Macomb summit.
