Peak Description

Nye Peak is the second lowest of the "Adirondack 46" peaks, and least prominent (smallest rise from the col with a higher peak). So not only is it one of the infamous four 46er summits that have been demoted to less than 4000 feet by the latest surveys, it does not qualifiy as a separate peak by almost any standard.
