  1. Mt. Eisenhower and Pierce via Crawford path and the AT

    Really not much to say on this one. I was expecting ice but bottom to top we were on solid hard packed snow. Microspikes were the order of the day and not other gear except to stay warm was...
  2. Mount Mansfield via Sunset Ridge trail to long trail. Conditions?

    I know it's probably snowing up there today at the higher elevations at least but just trying to get an idea.
  3. Mt. Isolation via Rocky Branch (also # 48). Ya baby!

    Very muddy in many places along the trail but otherwise, a good hike with minimal impediment. We managed the hike in about 6 hours.
    Edit: I should also add that the several river crossings were...

    If the 4k committee is accepting the old summit then so am I. lol. However, I will still need to do this as a winter hike so I will be sure to get to the "new" summit on that trip (maybe this year as...

    So, does the "old" summit still count?

    Based on my GPX that is where I made it to (a little higher along the trail than where I found the first Cairn at the top of the slide). Does that count or do I have to go do this hike again and hit...

    So it looks like I at least hit the "old" summit. I'd hate to have to do that hike again just to go an extra few feet. lol

    Owls Head (# 47)

    So the trail to the slide is ridiculously easy in my opinion. First 3 miles you might as well be walking on a road but at least the view of the river is nice I guess. After going into the "Woods" it...
  11. Owl's head take 2 - going on July 8. Anyone interested in going along?

    So, for obvious reasons, I didn't hike Owl's Head alone, overnight. Nor did I feel like dealing with the heat today. I just did an early morning hike up Mount Monadnock. I had the whole thing to...
  12. Is Dry River Trail to Isolation Trail as difficult as AMC guide ver 29 describes it?

    I'm trying to plan my ascent to Isolation (one of the last 2 hikes I have to finish the 48) and version 29 makes it seem that Dry river trail is fairly difficult to follow. This book is out of date...

    Anyone up for an overnight to Owls Head?

    I wanted to do Owl's Head on Sunday but those temps are going to be brutal so I was thinking maybe starting around midnight and that way hitting the summit early and being down before the heat really...

    I did, actually. I started before 6 a.m. (5:50 to be exact) and most of the way up it was damp/drizzly but comfortable. The skies cleared up enough as I neared West Bond to off me some spectacular...
  15. Hiking West Bond via Zealand Trail tomorrow morning. Anyone else want to go?

    So, I had been considering Isolation but settled on West Bond via Zealand Tr, etc... Driving up from Ct. Should be starting around 6 a.m.

    I guess by best, in my case, would be the fewest river crossings. I do love a good view as well.

    Best route for Mount Isolation?

    I'm thinking about doing Isolation this weekend, or maybe Monday (all depends on the weather). What is currently the best route to the summit in your opinion? My White Mountain guide needs a...

    You must be really close to me. Bigelow hollow is about 20 minutes from where I live. I hike Wachusett fairly frequently. The trails are well marked and it's not a very difficult hike (depending on...

    I was up on Mt. Willie yesterday and I saw a picture of the spot where the ladders are from 11 days ago on Reddit and WHAT a difference. 11 days ago you could see the ladders. Now - just a giant ice...
  21. Mt Willey via the flume trail behind Willey House to Ethan Pond and Willey Ridge

    My daughter and I did this hike yesterday. First off - if you've ever been on this trail (Willey Ridge) you know it can be a beast. Right now, it is moreso than it would be any other time of year....
  22. Updated trail conditions on Mt. Monadnock

    We (my daughter and I) were up there yesterday. Microspikes top to bottom. We had our snowshoes but never ended up using them. Very icy near the summit (as to be expected). We broke trail on Red Spot...
  23. Anyone know what trail conditions are on Monadnock?

    Going up this weekend, wanted to know if it is icy or not

    Ya, I did manage that somehow. Thanks for the heads up on which of the 3 will prove to be the least difficult but by the time 8 weeks of weekly 3 ascent days on Monadnock I should be ready for pretty...
