Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Dennis Van Amburgh on the day we did Algonquin -> Boundary -> Iroquois. Very nice slides to climb up along the way. One part was rather technical which required some use of hands. Exceptional views overall!
Descent of Algonquin towards the ADK Loj was challenging due to all of the rocks, which really hammered my knees and thighs.
