Mt. Skylight

Skylight from Little Haystack 88-05-04

Skylight's summit 96-08-22


This peak is located just South of Mt. Marcy. It has a distinctive round shape. It's summit is almost flat and as big as a football field. A very special cairn of 10 feet wide and 5 feet tall stands atop resulting from a tradition that said, "It will rain if you don't add a stone to the cairn". It is one of the most remote High Peaks summits. The South approach from Upper Works is the easiest one to get there in one day.
