Fall foliage wasn't the only thing at its peak in the Adirondacks over a recent weekend -- St. Lawrence's Outing Club also managed to place students on all 46 of the range's "high peaks" for the second year in a row.

The annual event known as "Peak Weekend" took place October 6-7, having as its goal the placement of students on all of the high peaks at some point during the weekend. The club is the only organization to place individuals on all the peaks during a single weekend, in a tradition that began in the early 1980s. The goal has only been achieved a handful of times, including last year.

The broader goals of the event are to introduce students to the nearby Adirondack region and to the activities of the Outing Club, the oldest student organization at St. Lawrence. Inexperienced students tackle the "easier" climbs, while more expert students handle the tougher ones.
