Very nice hike. Great weather, fantastic views and about 10% the number of people visible across the way on the Franconia traverse. Ascent via the Kinsman Ridge trail and descent via Hi-Cannon past Lonesome Lake (which was anything but lonesome at the time).

In 1974 a buddy and I got disgusted with the numbers of people on the AT and started bushwhacking. We didn't see people but we did see so much more. We felt (and must have looked) like we'd landed on another planet when we got to the top of Cannon. After not seeing another human for 4 days it was pretty overpowering.

Whitney-Gilman Ridge (III 5.7) -- August 31, 2003 -- Climbed with Felix Danila in 5 pitches on Labor Day weekend 2003. We were the second party on the route, but got held up on almost every pitch by the slower party ahead. The route is absolutely fantastic! Very unique for the northeast with a definite alpine feel. It's just like being on a ridge in the Tetons - perfect granite, sustained climbing with interesting moves, and loads of exposure. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite rock climbs anywhere. Definitely an ultra-classic and worth doing many times.

Moby Grape (III 5.8) -- September 14, 2007 -- Mary and I climbed this route on a windy day during a 4-day trip to NH. We started with Reppy's Crack and then continued on to the top. The pitches leading to the Fickle Finger were great, but the upper pitches were a bit ambiguous with no continuous features to follow. We started climbing at 9:15AM, topped out sometime around 3:30PM, and were back to the car at 5:20PM. I enjoyed the climb, but I think that Whitney-Gilman is the superior climb.

Pretty exciting-got to see the pipe that was installed on the 3rd pitch after Whitney and Gilman had done the route.

William MarlerRoute Climbed: Could not tell you Date Climbed: August 1983  Sucess!

Climbed this as a warmup for Mt Washington the next day. I couldn’t tell you the route but it wasn’t a rock climb. I am sure I have the photos of my girlfrind at the time giving me the evil eye at the top. She hated it as I remember. I remember a chairlift for some reason but can’t remember if we used it. If there are no other routes than rock routes we must have used the chairlift which would make this a rather bogus summit log. Let me now if anyone knows. I do remember the girlfriend she was stewardess and she also hated Mt. Washington...

I've done most of the moderate classics on Cannon Cliff. Great rock; great setting.
