Nice that you were able to get out there for these two. Sorry I was not able to join you but work is work. Put me down for something on 4/21 and maybe we can get John M something for his 46. Enjoy the family visit. 220 now that is some number. I remember when you were way behind me and now I am way behind you. I carried my snowshoes the other day all the way up and down Snowy so it was good to hear you were able to get them off your back.

this was another late trip...1:00PM start from the Willmington Res. kinda spontaneous....I had to get a mountain in with the bad weather that was forecast for later in the week, and the fact that I am heading for Pittsburg to see my daughter Allison, for a few days starting saturday...
The trail from the res. is bare and was mostly dry, save a 'few' small areas on the flat, about 3/4 of a mile in...in fact it's bare all the way to the Marble mt. summit sign...after that junction a small snow...

I'm heading up to Paul Smith's for my son's graduation this weekend. I'll have one day to do something I haven't yet done so I'm focusing on climbing McKenzie (and if time allows Moose as well) beginning from the Whiteface Inn road.

Has anyone been up that way in the last year or so?

Ester 4-21-12

I decided that I should finish off Ester Mountain once and for all. With the trail intelligence gained on last week's Whiteface climb, and my legs and lungs somewhat better conditioned after that effort, I felt I could knock off Ester without much difficulty.

I packed lightly (18 lbs) and arrived at the Marble Mountain trailhead by 7:00 A.M. With the passing of a week, most of the snow on Whiteface was gone, so I left the snowshoes in the car. The morning was nice and sunny...

Thanks for the warm welcome and feedback. I will keep checking the DEC website for the opening date for Corey's road. I will not be walking it again. I was actually curious if Mt. Bikes were allowed up to the parking lot? I had read some stories about the mud factor on the trail to Emmons and would take soft snow any day! We were able to make really good time. I will read up on the reservoir trail up Whiteface. I'm not familiar with that area, so it will all be new to me.

Welcome. Sounds like you had a couple of long rewarding days. I haven't been down the other side of Seward, but I would guess whatever difficulty you had trailfinding was more than offset by your mudless trek to Emmons. We did these last June, and the never-ending mud and flies made Emmons my least favorite of the 46. Enjoy the last three, I 'd suggest Whiteface from the reservoir instead of the shorter route-it's not much more effort and it's a nice trail.

Hiked Allen with two friends last Saturday March 24th for peak #40. We expected an adventure and were not disappointed. Having done our homework, we were aware that the bridges over the rivers were out and the water would be high. We all purchased hip boots at Dick's for $30 and put them to good use. The Hudson was flowing way to fast (and deep) at the low water crossing, so we had to bushwhack upstream about 400m to a place where it was wider and thus more shallow and slower moving. We...

Whiteface : April 14, 2012

Turner, my son-in-law, had the weekend available, planned to hike with his friend, Dennis, and they invited Molly and me. I had only hiked once since last April and knew I was out of shape. I hadn't realized that even Molly needed some conditioning!

I'd been to the Adarondacks a few time this spring to repair Huricane Irene damage. The eastern face of Giant and Rocky Ridge looked pretty much snow free, so we left the snowshoes at home. Whiteface and Ester,...

Mts. climbed; Esther and Whiteface from the Wilmington Res.
Weather conditions: perfect...sunny, no wind, cold enough to keep the snow dry, with great traction....and warm enough so that I was sweating from a great workout.

Wows...you'd have to break my legs to keep me off the trails today... worked again this morning, so another late start...just before 1:00PM when I finally hit the trail...knew that it would be a dark finish, but with a near full moon...not a lot of snow at the start of the...

Matt,

Unfortunately, no. The slides were mostly giant sheets of ice, some exposed rock, especially on the #1 slide at the waterfall and the #3 slide that widened after the rain storm earlier this year. We opted for the ski area. Hopefully better snow will come soon. The next day we scoped them out from below and thought there may have been a line hugging the skiers left side of #3 , but it was still better to be safe than sorry.
