Adirondack Mountains 3
Adirondack Mountains 2

Join one of our AMGA-certified guides on this 3-day guided workshop in the Adirondacks, New York. Learn new mountaineering techniques or improve your current ones!

Not specified

3 Days

Jun - Sep




The 3-day trip in the Adirondack mountains is a great introduction to mountaineering for both beginners and experienced climbers looking for a technical refresher.

We will start our journey early from NYC, arriving the Adirondacks in the afternoon. Once there, we will do a 3-mile hike with our gear to the accommodation. This day will be divided into two: some indoor classes at first and then an outside practice. Finally, we’ll have dinner and spend the night at John’s Brook Lodge.

Our goal for the second day will be to reach the top of the Big Slide Mountain, a fantastic peak of the Adirondacks. Here we’ll be able to put into practice all our recently learned techniques.

The third and last day will be the perfect moment for reviewing all the relevant aspects of the previous days. We will hike back to the trailhead with our gear and then get our transfer back to the city.

Don’t miss your chance to develop your mountaineering skills in the beautiful landscape that the Adirondack mountains offer. Contact us now to make your reservation!

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!



Can not review - guide cancelled but the trip was not to Perce Rock if we had gone - sadly.. tour was was what was advertised and destination was not where planned Ultimately the full day paddle was canceled by the guide company Effort was there and communication was good! Just booked what I wanted and was not what the guide could offer …
