|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
|Peak:||Shelving Rock Mountain|
| Location:||USA-New York|
| Elevation:||1130 ft / 344 m|
Ascent Trip ReportEasy hike with great views of the middle portion of Lake George. I got up SR in 30 minutes. The view from the summit is not good, but if you hike down over the summit for another 3-4 minutes you come up some open cliffs that provide the best view of LG. At the cliffs I saw the coming thunderstorm, and ran down the trail in about 16 minutes. Quite the workout! Made it to the car just as the heavens opened up...
