Wright Peak  Sucess!

Climbed with Algonquin and Iroquois via the McIntyre Range Trail from the Adirondack Loj. Amazing views of the Great Range and Algonquin. Wright's summit is perhaps one of the most beautiful of the 46. Checked out the plane crash site. Not a lot to see. The plane engine is still there though.

Peaceful  Sucess!

Hiked it with my brother after doing Algonquin. It seemed much more peaceful on Wright than it did on Algonquin, with the wind and cold not as biting and not a single other person on the mountain.

From ADK Loj  Sucess!

Only had time to climb Wright on this day. Not too difficult and a nice view. Algonquin is another matter. Nice waterfall along the way too.

Great View  Sucess!

Climbed Wright with my brother after doing Algonquin. The view of Algonquin from Wright was amazing! Didn't see anybody else on Wright, since it was a Monday. Didn't need the snowshoes after getting above treeline.

ADK Loj  Sucess!

It was a lovely winter morning with bits of snow and sun. Nice snowshoe to treeline, then switched over to crampons. It was WINDY! Gusts probably up to 50mph. Ice and wind made for an interesing summit. I made it thanks to Paul!! : )

The Wright Stuff  Sucess!

Did this along with Algonquin. Very, Very windy. I'm very bad at guessing, but we got pinned up against a rock on the summit, and our guess was that the wind was pushing 50mph with maybe 70mph gusts? But who knows. Regardless, it was lots of fun.

Algonquin's porch  Sucess!

On a fine day I decided to go to Wright, because I wanted to see the views. Last time I was in the area, I had no views at all from the summit of Algonquin Peak. The trail was ridiculously muddy, but you could see the begining of the fall colors, some nice Adirondack red could be seen all over.

Nice Dacks Summit  Sucess!

Summited Wright after summiting Algonquin on a gorgeous August Day. This mountain provides some fun little steep sections and great views to ALgonquin and the rest of the High Peaks Region.
