Algonquin Peak Climbing Notes

bill kowalski from UNITED STATES writes:

Hiked to summit on Wednesday, Nov.21. Virtually no wind even at summit. Trail is very icy for long stretches approaching tree-line. We all had micro-spikes, challenging going up, more challenging coming down. Wished we'd a had a climbing rope for rappelling down one rather lengthy stretch, would have been easier than hugging the trees along with edge. A great and rewarding hike/climb.
