Crew 63 Summits Marcy!  Sucess!

Took the heartiest of my BSA Crew to the summit on a summer weekend hike. We came up from the south near the lake since it was one of the longer approaches and less traveled. We camped the first night at a primitive campsite along the river and there was a great pot hole to cool off in.

We summited the next morning under clear skies with fog blanketing the valleys below us. The river side site we had planned to use that night for camping turned out to be filled filled with leaches where we had to cross the river. No one wanted to cross after me so we slogged it 12 miles back to the trailhead.

Married on Mt Marcy!!  Sucess!

Me and my now wife were married on top. It was a beautiful day, especially for how early in the year it was. We started with 13 people but only 10 made it. Her parents, her brides maid (and her boyfriend), my two groomsmen, the minister and most impressively her 3 year old son (who she and I carried most of the way). Great hike, beautiful scenery, went from warm at the bottom and no snow, to 4' of packed snow in the middle, to ice at the last accent, to warm and beautiful up top. In my opinion I couldn't have picked a better place to get married.

First time up  Sucess!

Windy and horrible rainy weather, but we were determined to make the top. Been back many times in much better weather, and have even skied to the top.

Great and tiring day  Sucess!

3rd state highpoint of Trip #2 (11th overall). So far our longest round trip, probably should have gotten an earlier jump on it, but still made it out by nightfall with a good amount of time spent on the summit.

Adirondacks, Marcy, what's not to like!  Sucess!

Great peak, a long day but i def liked the above treeline area towards the summit. We did the turnoffs up to both Skylight and Haystack too. Another great weather day for us. State HP #11

First hike in the high peaks  Sucess!

Being new to the high peaks, my small group was unprepared for the strenuous hike. With too little water, too little patience, and not a lot of experience, we made it through somehow!

ice and mud  Sucess!

Took me three hours and fifteen minutes from the Loj to the summit and three hours to descend. It had snowed the night before so the muddy trails of the lowlands gave way to ice and snow above 3500 feet. Good weather the day of the hike so the views were fantastic.

A nice surprise  Sucess!

We arrived at night, unable to see much of anything, and awoke to the beautiful Adirondack fall scenery. The views just got better as we headed up the Van Hoevenburg Trail, especially at Marcy Dam with all of the color and peaks surrounding it. The summit was very windy and cloudy, and by the time we left, crowded. This was a fun hike and a great finish to a week of summits that also included Mansfield, Washington, and Katahdin. HP44

Nice Hike!  Sucess!

In general, I had not been a fan of most mountain hikes near the East Coast. Mount Marcy changed that, for me. I really enjoyed the hike. I was the first person at the summit that day, too. The waether seemed to be favorable until reaching the small hill below the summit hill, and then the wind started racing and the views greatly diminished. But I still had a great time! This was my 44th State Highpoint.

Mount Marcy  Sucess!

After driving to three state high points (PA, FL, KY), I wanted a real hike. My friend and I decided to make a man-weekend of it and climbed Marcy on a positively beautiful day in the wake of Hurricane Lee. 14+ miles was certainly a hike, but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
