    About 13 hours on an aborted attempt on Washington, I simply was in terrible shape. My longest completed hike was The Tripyramids, that was about 10.5 hours. We went up Pine Bend Brook and down...

    Thanks, it’d help if all apps used the same names for the same trails but AllTrails doesn’t show this under “Fire Warden’s Trail.” I guess there are too many of those.

    That would have worked if there was signage at the Falling Waters trailhead informing people of that option. If those hundreds of cars parked on the sides of I93 had gone to other mountains or...

    Thanks, my thoughts on the matter are that the mountains aren’t going anywhere and while I don’t want to injure myself I want someone else to be injured on my behalf even less.

    I used my new NEMO Tensor 25 pad, 3” thick and only needing about 30 big breaths to inflate. I doubt I’d use it in temps much lower than what we saw since it’s not insulated. It weighs less than a...

    A 4K would be nice because my hiking partner likes bagging them, I’m less discriminating but if one comes up I’ll go for it. Kearsarge North has a great view and is fairly strenuous for me, but I...

    Willey didn’t look too steep from the contour lines on the map, but then again neither did Greenleaf! I’ve already done Tecumseh but my partner hasn’t, and it does seem like a good trainer. Kearsarge...

    I totally forgot I had “The 4000-Footers of the White Mountains” on a shelf at home, which pretty much backs up the WMG. So I’ll bring that along with the maps and we can figure out our route...

    Donít forget the 6í or so ladder a little before you hit the tree line. The snow may or may not be drifted against the rock the ladder climbs.
