    Great video! I have always wanted to climb Marcy but wondered if I could do it. The video gives me courage. Thanks for posting.

    Wanting to do mount marcy the last weekend in April , how difficult is it this time of year?

    You never know in Spring, could be nice, could be rain, could be snow, could be mud. Since end of April is not too far away, I’m going to say, there may be all of the above!

    Climbed Mount Marcy April 27th, 2014. 25 km round trip, freezing at the top with wind and snow, -25 C, mud and ice, and winter! Bring the crampons, didn’t need the snowshoes but stay on the path! 7.5 hours return
