Route Climbed: Appalachian Trail Date Climbed: Feburary 1997
This was the first summit that my wife and I made together. We backpacked up and ran out of water. We sucked ryme ice off of leaves to hydrate on the way down. I have climbed this mountain many times since to train for the Cascade Volcainos.
Route Climbed: From Bryon Reece Trail head Date Climbed: Sept 5 2003
Hit the trail head around 5:45 in the evening. Kinda hazy this evening, so the views from the top weren't great, but the sun was coming through the clouds in very cool patterns while I hung out at the summit for a bit. 50 minutes up and 40 minutes back down. Weather was very pleasant for hiking - 70's with relatively low humidity.
Route Climbed: AT from Neels Gap Date Climbed: 10.26.2002 - 2 AM EST
Summited in dense clouds / fog @ 2 AM EST on Saturday. There were 5 guys (in headlamps) in total that summited (Clay, Ryan, Mark, Eric, & Bryan). Had a great time hiking up the mountain. Saw some people w/ a bear bag directly over the tent - made us laugh. Views would have been better in the day & no clouds.
