Climbed Marcy, Algonquin and Wright Peak based out of Colden Lake in February.
The bomber wreckage on the peak is very eerie to walk around. Great view of Algonquin, along with Colden and Marcy just behind. Got stuck on top due to time - bivy'ed in 40-50 mph winds that lasted all night long. Not much sleep.
Very windy and lots of ice
Soloed in the bitter cold.....
wind, rain, sore legs, cramping calves, started to snow,just turned 3:30_can i get back down in time?_ crazy brutal hike_but good none the less_
Climbed with RobA, MaryBeth and Meg, to find the B-47 near the summit.
My 3rd peak of the day! I had planned to get Wright first, but decided to make this the last hurrah after Algonquin/Iroquois, and it was a good idea. An invigorating homestretch; treeline seems particularly low on this one, so lots of bare rock from 4100 on.
After a weekend of being socked in by remnants of Hurricane Cindy ~ we had a perfect summit day on Wright! Algonquin was "in our face" and the views were spectacular in every direction.
Hit Algonquin and Wright enroute to Lake Colden for a Trap Dike ascent.
Took the family up this time and spent almost 3 hrs on top just hanging out. Spent a good amount of that time looking fot the bomber on the N slope.
My 3rd ADK high peak on the day! Wright Peak is a very spectacular and scenic peak with views almost as good as Algonquin.
very cold and windy, summer or winter.
Great trail down through Avalanche Pass afterwards. Bagged Boundry Peak (not listed) to get to Wright.
My first High Peak. An awesome mt. with great views. it was just great.
Little windy upon reaching the top, but a great day nonetheless.
Climbed up through the clouds to find myself alone in the mist on the summit. Algonquin was obscured when I summited but the clouds soon gave way to an awesome view of the second highest peak in the Adirondacks. Headed back down to the trail junction and started up Algonquin.
Sight from the top was breath taking.
First time rock climbing on some unkown cliff face. Exposed. Neat.
Temp. low-50s to start. Trails in fine condition, quite rocky but nothing too arduous. Encountered a moderate number of hikers, still a very comfortable hike. Reached summit in about 2.5 hours. Peak was only a bit cooler, wind under control.
The summit was not busy at all, only a few small groups. Thanks to one, I found the bomber wreckage and plaque on the northeast side. Views were great, nice clear day. Well-worth the side-trip on the way to the busy summit of Algonquin.
