> Adirondack Ice…
> E: Interior High Peaks
Gothics is one of the most impressive mountains in the high peaks region of the Adirondacks. It's steep North and South faces offer some of the best and most sustained alpine ice climbing in the park. There are also numerous beautiful hiking trails to the top and a backcountry ski descent down the True North slide.
North face climbers will park at the Garden Parking lot at the end of Adirondack Rd. out of Keene Valley. If you're climbing the South face you should probably park at the St Huberts parking area across the street from the Giant/Roaring Brook Falls trailhead between Keene Valley and Chapel Pond. The approach can take much longer or shorter depending on trail conditions but expect 3 hours for the North face and probably more for the Southface .
