  • Lake Placid Slide: 2012 October 27

    Disclaimer

    Just a quick couple paragraphs and pics:

    PICTURES

    Nangaparbat and I took a nice climb up Lake Placid Slide just before TS Sandy came into town back in October. We left the Connery Pond area around 8:45 a.m., got to the slide top about 2 or so where we parted ways. I arrived back at the car just before 5 p.m.

    The intermittent sun and mist was an interesting combination for photography. It looked like the stream was a bit more cleaned out since I was here last. ...and I can still say that this is one of the most slippery slides (mainly near the bottom and streambed) I've climbed...a great example of ADK Teflon!

    May your ambition for the goal allow you to be a student of the journey.

    It was a great day, starting with a quiet hike up to Whiteface Landing on Lake Placid, then we went into the forest shortly after passing the Lean-to.

    The slide was slick && greasy at the bottom , which provide me with an unexpected challenge.

    In the end we made it safely as usual.

      Always fun to view your pictures. Looks like a slide for a person just beginning to explore this side of the Adirondack's.

        Thanks, yeah it's easy to find and only has a few steep sections. The main challenge for me both times on it was the darn algae as you drop below the mid-section or in the stream-bed. I had the climbing shoes this time which is overkill for that type of slide, but helped equalize the slip-factor!
