5 out of 5 stars A Classic Adirondack Climb

An excellent climb with very little true ice climbing but the few short pitches were fun. The rest of the way up the mountain offers increased exposure and is well worth the effort. Not much in the way of climbing though. Didn't bother with any protection even though it's probably a good idea.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome

Night time solo, the ice was in shitty condition and there was tons of snow. Still a blast.
