    Smile Elevation of Slant Rock

    First post.

    Does anyone know the elevation of Slant Rock? I am heading there Friday and if I have time, I would like to hike up Marcy to kill some time that evening before tackling the Great Range the next couple days. I like to write up a fairly detailed trip report and its fun to provide that sort of info.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Sean

    P.S. I be posting my trip report Monday 2/21/2005!!

    Hi! Welcome to the board. Slant rock is 1020m from sea level. That's about 3350 feet. Information available here . Hope you have a great trip to Marcy, it is a real nice hike from that direction.

    It is almost 2,000 feet below Marcy, between 3300 and 3400 IIRC.
    (Sorry for the redundancy - I think I posted as Percious was finishing his post.)

    Thanks

    All,

    Thanks for the info. From what I could see on the map, I figured it was about 2,000' below Marcy; thanks for confirming.

    percious -- that contour map is much easier to count the lines on than mine. Thanks! Nice website btw. To answer your question, yes I have climbed in the peaks. This will be my 18th year doing so. However, this is only my third year doing them alone.
