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!

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!
