Mount Marcy Climbing Notes

Paul Thornton from UNITED STATES writes:

We hiked Mt. Marcy on Oct. 11-12, 2021. The weather was low 40's at night and 60's by the afternoon. The wind was manageable. We had no rain so the conditions were perfect. The sky was clear. The trail was still muddy but never impassable. In fact, my shoes barely got wet from the planks and rock hopping We were able to claim the last available legal camping site about 1 mile past the lean-tos at Mt. Marcy dam. This gave us about a 8 mile round trip hike on Tuesday, Oct. 12th. As I look at the mountain weather forecast this week, I see that we probably caught the last good week of the season. The weather on Monday, Oct. 18th is 23-25 degrees F. all day with a chill factor of 7 F. at night.

The hike is worth it in these great conditions. I would not have enjoyed any rain or low wind chill.

My hiking buddy is 67 and I am 69. We are active and in pretty good shape.

Enjoy your climbing.
