The Adirondacks are estimated to be between 880 million to 1 billion years of age and are comprised mostly of metamorphic rock. Despite their tremendous age, the Adirondacks are still rising today at a rate of 1-3mm per year.
The following quote... "Yesterday I ascended fourteen Adirondack peaks. Thus I have carried a little farther the fantastic pastime of record climbing, adding three to Malcolm's total of eleven. Perhaps within a few weeks, surely as soon as a few more mountains in the vicinity of Mount Marcy have trails cut on to them, somebody will readily enough overtop my record. Certainly it is a mark which any reasonably vigorous person in good physical condition can equal if he tries it when there are long daylight hours. In fact, it would fit perfectly in a class with flagpole sitting and marathon dancing as an entirely useless type of record, made only to be broken, were it not that I had such a thoroughly glorious time out of the entire day." is attributable to whom?
