Ascent Trip Report

We climbed up Wright Peak via the Wright Peak Spur on our way back to the Adirondack Loj. We summited it early because our campsite was only about 1 mile away. We hung out there for around and hour, ate breakfast and admired the partly cloudy view which was the best visibility I had from a summit so far. This was also my first mountain that did not have a geological marker but was a nice climb with a small prominence. Adirondack 46ers: #3 of 46.
