    Hale, Zealand, Twins 12.14.14

    12.14.14

    I opted to skip a presi for something a little easier given the weather. Turns out it was probably about as challenging given the conditions I encountered. Sorry if this post is a bit...

    Carrigain 12.13.14

    12.13.14

    Parking at the winter lot was fine. Sawyer river rd was barebootable. Variable conditions on the hike itself. Super firm snow down low - microspikes would have been fine but I wore...

    Liberty and Flume via LS 12.7.14

    12.7.14, Liberty Springs to Franconia Ridge

    The trail was broken out by a mix of bareboots and snowshoes. It's pretty boney down low but once LS begins to climb a bit the trail is pretty nicely...

    11.29.14

    This post might not be all that relevant given the recent warmup but on Saturday night I ventured up to finally tackle Owl's Head at night. Lincoln Woods was packed out pretty well. ...

    I got a pair of Denali Intuition Liners a couple of years back and had them fitted by the folks at Feathered Friends for my Scarpa Invernos. I found they gave me a mild shin bang when climbing...

    I hear you, it's likely a little too rich for my blood at this point. There's other hard routes on the mountain that don't have the hazards of LR.

    Here's an updated story with the names of all...

    Terrible news. Matt (the lead guide for this climb with AAI) was the lead guide for a 6 day course I took 2 years ago. I was actually hoping to do LR next month when I'm out there. This will weigh...
  9. Madison thru Pierce presi; Garfield 5-25-14

    5-25-14

    Took Valley way. Trail is in good shape for this time of year. We hit some ice/hard monorail above the campsite but nothing that can't be bypassed by stepping on rocks. Madison was in...

    Owl's Head 5-24-14

    5-24-14

    I took the Black Pond bw and for the first time in non-winter months was able to make out some semblance of a herd path for a good portion of the hike. There was some mud but nothing...
  11. Galehead, S Twin, N Twin via Gale River Trail et al 5.11.14

    5.11.14
    Gale River Loop was still gated so i parked down the road at the Beaver Brook Rest Area. The xc ski trail was very muddy in places, more-so early on. There were some muddy sections along...

    Moriah via Stony Brook 2-9-14

    2-9-14
    I parked up the road and there's a small plowed out area for one car at the lesser known 'trailhead'. Trails were well broken out so only microspikes were needed. There did appear to be...

    Hancocks; Tom Field Willey 2-9-14

    Title should read 2-8-14, whoops.

    Hancock parking lot was overflowing and not surprisingly the trail was well packed down. I carried snowshoes and never needed them. Busy day on the trails, I'd...

    I parked at 4 corners but those with snow tires or a larger vehicle could easily park off to the side by the Gale River Rd gate. Used snowshoes for traction to the trailhead. Although there...

    Awesome, congrats! I'm chipping away at the 48 at night, but my definition is just to be on the summit between sunset and sunrise--considerably more liberal criteria. Unfortunately I still have a...

    I almost glazed over it but at the bottom of the article it says Cascade River Rd got washed out too. That's a pretty big deal as the road provides access for Eldorado, Forbidden, Torment, Sahale,...
