During this time the DEC and SCA Adirondack Corps will be working on the Hitch-Up Matildas and hikers will not be able to pass thru Avalanche Lake.  Access thru Avalanche Pass to the head of the lake and from Lake Colden to the outlet will be possible.  Signage will be posted at Avalanche Camps and Lake Colden, as well as Upper Works, ADK Loj and South Meadows.

 

Please plan ahead for trips during this time period.  Also note that the trail from Feldspar to Lake Arnold has some flooded portions of the trail that are worsened with rain.

Cho Oyu Camp One

Photo from our friend Gray Watkins taken at Camp One on Cho Oyu.

Sending the best of luck to our friend Gray Watkins who has been climbing and acclimating on Cho Oyu over the past few weeks. Gray and his team will be making a summit bid soon should the weather cooperate.

Bad weather forced us back to Advanced Base Camp but first we climbed the crux ice wall to an hour or so from Camp Two.

Still lots of climbing to go! No O2 yet, just Diamox small dose.

At 8,188 meters, Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world.

The New York Ski Educational Foundation (NYSEF) Nordic team skied into Avalanche Lake this weekend and found great conditions!

Sure doesn’t look like Spring in the High Peaks.
