Side hike with a great bald summit, and some fun bouldering spots along the way down Algonquin.
Could not see more that 20 feet ahead. Found the top and came back down to get ready for Algonquin.
Part of a three-fer with Algonquin and Iroquois. Amazing day, but too damn hot.
Managed to get my brother hooked on the ADKs on this hike.
Goal was Iroquois, but started late in day and hit icy patches on Algonquin (no crampons). So detour to Wright, and no complaints from me.
Perfect weather. About a foot of snow on the ground, but the trail was pretty well compacted, having microspikes was very helpful.
Visited after Algonquin and Iroquois. Summit Steward showed me the plane wreck site.
Several summits, multiple seasons.
Hiked up Wright as a side trip on the way back down from Algonquin. Forgot to look for plane wreckage...next time!
ditched my pack with my camera at the tree line. so i did not get any pix on this one.
As part of a return trip to Algonquin. The hike up to the turn off was a bit icy in some parts from the October snowfalls melting and refreezing overnight. After the turnoff to the summit of Wright, the trail was more icy, although hikers were still making it without any extra gear. I used crampons, and these worked the best for the conditions. Above the treeline, it was just bare rock most all the way to the summit.
Great views of Algonquin. Never did find the b-47 crash, but didn't look hard for it either.
Wet and muddy in good Adirondacks style, steeper than Algonquin.
Climbed along with Algonquin. cloudy morning from a weak cold front lifted around 2PM. after i had started my descent. didnt see any memorial for the B-52 but visibility was very limited. Steep trail but a lot of fun.
thought the rocky peak was pretty impressive. than we climbed algonquin.
A beautiful day below the tree line, but the wind was biting on the summit. The snow on the trail was packed down, so snowshoes were not necessary for most of it.
Stayed one night at Loj, then snowshoed to both peaks. I used ice crawlers on hard-pack. We passed two guys with crampons and ice axes.
Good addition to Algonquin
Great hike following a snowstorm. Did it with microspikes and the summit was a little hairy. Wished I brought my crampons. Otherwise the spikes were ideal.
Pretty bad day weather-wise. Wind was incredible on the summit, enough to knock me down a few times. No sign of the B-52 as visability was an issue.
Windy, chilly, and socked-in on top. Grumble.
