      Looking from Owl's Head on Sunday, the rarely visited Putnam Brook slide on Giant looked expanded and cleaned up.

        It would be fun to see a series of before and after pics!
        Shut your eyes and think of somewhere
        Somewhere cold and caked in snow.......

            Mudrat, thanks for posting the list. Will be interested to learn of others. Does anyone know the condition of the Trap Dike? Is it clogged with debris? Any word on whether it can be hiked?

                  Mudrat is famous

                  Just posted an item on Adirondack Almanack on slides that links to this thread.

                  I thought the closeup photo of the new slide on Saddleback deserved bigger play, so I ran it large on my Outtakes blog. You can find it here.

                    Shouldn't this be posted in the slides section?

                    Is there an over/under for the last slide climbed?

                        Wow, the day after it came down, that must have been cool! I would imagine it smelled like a sawmill on that!

                          First fame. Not your retirement. Such pressure so early in life...

                          Don't do any betting for this weekend. I'm still recovering from Irene and trying to fix things!

                            Sounds like someone is going to have to design a new patch. We'll call it the "Irene-slide-patch"
                            High peaks: Summer: 46/46 (1st iteration); 26/46 (2nd); 8/46 (3rd); 3/46 (4th) Winter: 7/46 (1st); 0/46 (2nd) The other 56: Summer: 41/56(1st); 10/56(2nd); 3/56(3rd); 3/56(4th) Winter: 11/56(1st); 2/56(2nd); 1/56(3rd); 4th (0/56)

                              In places ... but most of the slide was fairly clean. The tree jams below the final slab were the exception to the rule.
