Eagle Slide on Giant Mountain

  • Route 9
    Keene Valley

One thousand vertical feet of slab climbing hanging over spectacular views. Plenty of clean anorthosite as you go. This is considered an excellent, airy route.

Giant Mountain trailhead: Route 9, 4.9 miles north of the junction with Route 73, and 1.3 miles south of the New Russian Post Office.

Distance: 8 miles to summit. Moderate climb with some rock scrambles.

Elevation: 4,627 feet
