Mt Marcy Weekend - Equipment list

I apologize for not being able to locate one.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a comprehensive equipment list for a weekend Mt Marcy trek? I've climbed Marcy 3 times. But this will be my first time leading a group, and I want to make sure I am well prepared.

The plan is to hike into Marcy Dam, Friday evening, September 30th 2016. We will sleep in a lean-to and start the climb Saturday morning.

My buddy recommended microspikes just in case.

If you go to the 'Gear' sub-forum there is a sticky thread with a few different gear checklists. Perhaps one of those could get you started with a good idea of what you will need.


Right here:

There's no guarantee that a lean-to will be available, especially on a weekend. So be prepared with tent(s).

Forgive me for saying this, but if you're not sure what to take or even how to locate a checklist, the question comes to mind: what is your training in leading groups on long hikes to remote locations? If little or none, Marcy in autumn seems like a dubious choice.

Marcy is the tallest mountain in NY. Be careful.
