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 25 through 27, 2009.

About 260 people participated in the 2009 version of the tradition, which began in the early 80's. Students have reached the top of all of the range's high peaks (those over 4,000 feet) many times since the annual event began. This year, several athletic teams (women's lacrosse and swimming, for example), 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.
