Off-trail ascent of Northeast face, Algonquin - March 7, 2020

Great winter conditions on a suprisingly bushwhack-free (well, bushwhack minimal) ascent of the northeast face of Algonquin, starting from a point along the Avalanche Pass trail. Didn't see any other parties on the ascent, which isn't that suprising. I wonder how many do this route in any given year...

Wow, that was great! That traverse looked a little hairy. I'm with Gino, I was nervous just reading it.

This is one of the best and most comprehensive trip reports I've ever seen. Absolutely stellar photos. Extraordinary write-up. Algonquin is one of the coolest mountains in the ADKs and an all-time favorite of mine. I wish I had done this trip! So awesome and a great creative route you used!
