ADK Paddle and Climb

Hi!

I'm trying to make a list of 'Paddle and Climb' peaks for Peakbagger.com, these would be peaks that would allow a paddle, then subsequent climb to get to the top of. Note that the paddle would not necessarily have to be a requirement for all peaks on the list, but some (e.g. Long Pond Mtn) would requite both modes of locomotion.

Thought it would make sense to reach out to this forum and the wealth of knowledgeable people on it to see if you would have any more you would recommend adding to the list. Unfortunately for some reason the Peakbagger website won't let me add Low's Ridge, but I think that it should be on there!

So far I have:

+ Whiteface
+ Kempshall
+ Ampersand
+ Saint Regis
+ Long Pond Mountain
+ Castle Rock
+ Frederica

Baldface Mountain in Indian Lake is a nice one. Last year I canoed down Newcomb Lake on the way to climbing partway up Santanoni on the Ermine Brook slide, but there were a few miles of trail between the lake and the mountain so I doubt if that one would count.

For what it's worth, I wouldn't bother adding Kempshall Mt. to your list. The fire tower was removed long ago and without it, there's no view.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time....be well.

Hitchins Pond on Bog River and associated hill. Not a big climb but the vew is as good as Frederica.

Also, how about Owls Head in Long Lake with a paddle across Lake Eaton.

Good Luck cliffs from Good Luck Lake
St Regis Mt from Upper St Regis Lake (or bushwhack from St Regis Pond)
Grampus Lake Mt from McCrorie Lake
Floodwood Mt from Rollins Pond (sort of)
West Mt from Raquette Lake

Others, I suppose, are too far from the stated criteria...like Indian Lake Mt from Indian Lake (Moose River Plains) or Trout Lake Mt from the west branch of Sacandaga River


And yes, I have done all of these

I would suggest Grass Pond Mountain on Low's Lake (Bog River Flow). Great view.

Technically I think you could get to any mountain around Lake George from the lake but I know for sure you can add Sleeping Beauty, Buck and Pilot Knob.
