Do you have a link to that article? The double edged sword in the Adirondacks is the easy, amazing hikes are crowded on nice weekends, and then new hikers get in over their heads on the harder hikes.

Crowding was discussed on the main High Peaks forum, and I realized I was alone on the summits of some of the most popular peaks. It turns out if you do them midweek in the off season, you can have the whole wilderness to yourself.
