Look for mostly dry conditions, some camoflauged ice on rocks so be careful. We went up from Merrovista to Flagg, over the Gorilla Trail to Shaw then Carriage to Black Snout and then the Tate Mt Trail to Big Ball and the Band-aid trail down. Northern sides were more icy but there was no snow. Lots of wild-life sign along the way. Warmish in the morning but very windy and getting colder on the last couple of peaks. Dramatic views to the north of Chocorua and other peaks on the Sandwich range.
