Sawteeth Elevation Profile

[Above] Elevation Profile from Sawteeth, Adirondacks : 8 November 2010
I loved this climb. We manged to get up there before the forecast low and winter weather moved into the valley. Snow and sleet started about an hour before we hit the final section of trail to the summit. The last 500 feet of trail consisted of mixed terrain, rock, and ice. Crampons and ice axes were required to reach the summit. Summit conditions were very windy and fogged in. I'm told that the summit of Sawteeth is one of the best views in the range. We'll have to save that for a clear day. Yesterday was a long day, but it was fun to be out in the weather. Glad that the real teeth of winter are starting to show, especially in the High Peaks.
