Gothics is a beautiful multi-faced mountain in the Great Range sitting between Armstrong and Saddleback. It is a great hike in and of itself and the cabled hiking trail up the exposed east ridge gives hikers an exciting "climb."
Gothics lies deep within the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. It can be approached from several directions depending on which face is to be climbed. For North Face climbs approach via Johns Brooks Lodge Trail to the Obed. Make a left and go up the drainage to the base of the huge slab. Hike off down the east ridge.
