We descended it a year or so ago at dusk, finishing with headlamps on. We were moving pretty quickly (for us) and I do not recall any navigational issues or significant obstacles.

Great info. Looks like I have to spend some quality time at that other site too.

We can switch over to Upper Works to Feldspar Brook area or the popular Marcy Dam - Van Hoevenberg trail

ok, this is not exactly what you asked for but is a fantastic start. I do back country camping but also occasionally still use the "Wilderness Campsite" at Adirondack Loj. No RV's, sites are spaced...
