An Alpine Trek In Adirondacks?

“In the eastern half of the United States, you either explore the backcountry as a climber or a hiker, rarely both. Given the vertically challenged terrain, alpinism takes some imagination,” write Shannon Davis and Julie Ellison.

They recommend an “enchainment”—the linking together of two or more summits—that takes in Mount Colden, Mount Marcy, and Gothics.
