St. Lawrence University's Outing Club, the second-oldest such organization in the country, once again succeeded in placing students at the top of all 46 "high peaks" of the Adirondack Mountains during Peak Weekend, held September 24 through 26, 2010.

it is estimated that over 400 people participated in this year's version of the tradition, which began in the early 80's. The University has placed students, alumni, faculty, staff and parents on the top of all of the range's high peaks (those over 4,000 feet) many times since the annual event began. This year, as in the past, several athletic teams as well as clubs and theme floors participated in groups.

Peak Weekend is organized by the Outing Club. In addition to the goal of getting people on all of the high peaks during peak fall foliage time, the main goal of the event is to introduce students to all that the region has to offer for outdoor recreation.
