Carried (Away) Up the Trap Dike
The only thing running through Port and Dwy’s mind right now? “I’d hitch up Matilda right out now NO PROBLEM!”
As we headed up this is about what they saw for the entire journey:
This is the boulder that hangs over the final slab ascent above the Trap Dike. It totally would have gotten sent if Porter and Dwyer weren’t hitching a ride on Kristin.
You’re totally weighing me down guys!
With Porter and Dwyer off my back, I was able to complete the easy and fun chimney move nearby.
As we descended Dwyer insisted on heading off into the fabled Adirondack Bush for a quick whack… we haven’t seen him since. We’re sure he’ll return.
Hope you enjoyed a little bit of silly hiking humor as part two of HIKE WEEK. I think it just goes to show you that hiking can really be a lot of fun for all sorts of different reasons. I went to the Trap Dike intending to gather information on route, and anchor placement for a potential ski descent, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a lot of fun staging silly pictures of Porter and Dwyer. In any case, we here at FIS will be back at it again tomorrow with a SPA Trip hike. I’m also told that Lionel is working up some weather tips for you about what makes the perfect conditions for hiking. Enjoy! HIKE (or TREK for you Canadians)!
