Pioneer Pok-O Patch

Pok-O-MacCready’s youngest boys – the Pioneer Section – is not likely to produce any Adirondack 46ers.  ToPatch climb the 46 high peaks of the Adirondacks takes time, not to mention strength and stamina, and only two campers have ever completed the 46 while still a Pioneer.

That doesn’t mean that the Pio’s aren’t without their own climbing goals.  The Pok-O Patch peaks, the four most prominent mountains surrounding Long Pond, can be climbed in a single summer (or in as short as two hours!), and the Pioneers are well on their way to earning an actual Pok-O Patch (right).

On Tuesday, the Pioneers climbed Mt. Pok-O-Moonshine, the tallest of the four Pok-O Patch peaks.  “It was very hard going up, but I was surprised how fast we got down,” Toby remarked.  PioPoko01“The best part, Cole said, “was the fire tower.  You could see a long, long way!”  

Tor, a veteran of the Patch Sprint Pok-O race called it “really easy,” while Owen, the youngest kid in camp said “there were a lot of trees!”

The Pioneers have now climbed three out of the four Pok-O Patch peaks, with plans to complete the patch on Thursday.
