Short Day Hike  Sucess!

Hiked up Phelps Mt today. Excellent weather, great views and hundreds of very hungry blackflies! 8 miles, 5 hours and stopped to take plenty of pictures and ate lunch at the summit.

Winter Phelps  Sucess!

This was my first High Peak ever and first winter summit. It was tougher than I expected but the summit has a great view. No people at all, my favorite thing.

Harder Than I Thought  Sucess!

Skied out to Avalanche Lake and figured I would grab this peak on the way back. I did, but it was a pretty tiring day.

with Marcy and Table Top  Sucess!

Was feeling good on the way down from Marcy and Table Top and decided to make the trip up. Amazing views and the weather was perfect, but the summit was crowded.

Nice quick warmup...  Sucess!

We wanted a nice quick warmup hike before doing Colden from Lake Colden the following day and this peak definitely fit the bill. Good views from Big Slide all the way around to Algonquin and Wright.

Phelps Mountain  Sucess!

Climbed with Table Top via the Van Hoevenberg Trail from the Adirondack Loj. Constant ice and snow over 3000' this time of year. The views from the summit were excellent. Be aware of the steep ledges along the side trail off Van Hoevenberg.
