Giant Mountain, NY, 4626ft, 1410m

Giant Mountain is the twelfth highest peak in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park, in New York, USA. The peak is also known as “Giant of the Valley,” due to its stature looking over Keene Valley and St. Huberts to the west. The prominent rock slides on the mountain’s steep western face and its location away from most other large peaks make it quite an imposing figure, leading to its name.

This one was tough, mostly because I loaded my pack around 20 pounds before leaving, and because the weather was really hot. Amazing view at the top is a nice reward. Trip recommended, with good shoes, this is mostly rocks all the way long.

The live tracking on http://5895.ca did work amazingly well 😀

Here is a 360 view of the summit:

And the traditional Everytrail view, with pictures.
