Route Climbed: From Uphill Brook Lean-To Date Climbed: February 17, 2004  Sucess!

We took the multi-day approach to Redfield, though most people are climbing this as a day trip from ADK Loj or Upper Works. We camped at Lake Arnold.

Following a nicely packed snowshoe trail, this was a straightforward climb to the top. Deep snow meant ducking here and there, but the trail was easy to follow. (See my comments on the route in the "Getting There" section.)

Climb this mountain in the winter! No blowdown tangles at all.

Finally, the views are fantastic from the approach and from the summit.

“I wouldn’t take my worst enemy here.”—Daniel Battin, August 4, 2002

Now what could possibly cause me to utter these words? Climbing Redfield and Cliff Mtns; that’s what! These mountains had more blowdown than any other mountains that I climbed. My hip muscles even cramped up a little bit. I had never had that happen before. These two mountains pushed me to near exhaustion. There were times when I did not think I would succeed. There were also times when my feet did not touch the ground for many minutes due to the massive blowdown.
