Clark Mountains, New York Mountains

April, 1973

By: Doug Mantle


This rescheduled trip was so memorable I forgot to write it up. What seemed like 2,000 people met somewhere in a dust storm Sat. AM and eventually wandered up the summit of Clark, down to a waterfall, up to the summit, down to........ We had a happy, noisy campfire, complete with bloody leeks, California drinking songs, drunken minors and a wounded Texan Sat, night.

Sunday, New York Mtn. offered brimming streams, colorful canyons, rock scrambling and a disillusioned leader.

Several hurried off to stand us up at the Marble Mtn. junction, but oblivious to human nature we scrambled up what was still a crummy list peak to finish this trio and write up.
