This is one of the best strenuous hikes in the Adirondacks.The reward at its summit is well worth the view on the great range. Plan at least 8hrs for this hike since its approche takes a long time (some lean-to's are available on some trails). There is also nice bushwacking possibilities from its slides , but beware ice comes early to this alpine region.
Fun fact the Adirondacks are in the geological formation called the canadiens shield. It is the southern part of this rock formation and is a horst.
