Cathedral-Knife Edge-Helon Taylor, solo, just under 5 hours car-to-car. Blue-bird skies, almost no wind. Minimal bugs, too. Still a couple of snow patches left in South Basin. All in all a good day - too bad the drive is so damn long...

via an AT thru-hike. snow flurries and no visibility on summit day but nonetheless a great cap to an awesome experience. at age 19, the months alone in my head on the trail were the best thing that ever happened to me...

Climbed via the Abol Slide Trail. Met many interesting people including a man who had summited Katahdin for the 46th time. 8 hours round trip including a leisure lunch at the summit. A clear day with great views. The black flies were brutal. State HP #47.

I climbed this mountain well before even thinking about climbing all 50 state highpoints which was not started until 9 years after this state. From what I can remember of this summit, it was extremely difficult but it started my love affair with hiking. Chimney pond was beautiful!!

Maybe the best mountain in the East if you want some scrambling.

We tried to do this trip the last 2 winters, and only now were we able to summit. Well worth the wait. One of the better North Eastern peaks. Massive, impressive, big, and intimidating. Great trip though. We squeezed in between 2 big snow systems, and were able to be the only people on the mountain that week. We went up the Cathedral trail, and back the same route. Amazing. What a good trip!

This seems to contradict everything I was told before my hike. How did you find coming down Cathedral?

Up Dudley, over the Knife Edge and down the Saddle, from Chimney Pond. 4.5 hours for this, not counting the trip back down to the trailhead. Knife Edge was in the clouds the whole time, which probably made the hike go faster as there were no pictures to take. It did clear out towards the end, though, with some nice views of the mountain cloaked in yellow from the fall birches.

Climbed up Cathedral to the summit, then down the Saddle. Got to see to see two AT hikers finishing their journey as an added bonus.

Clear day with very little clouds after heavy rain the night before.

Hiked Katahdin with High School buddie Leo,son Ollie and my son Hunter on a beautiful day. Going up was easy, coming down I struggled. I was about a 1/2 hr behind the other 3. Four years later my son wants to return and do the Knifes Edge. Contemplating a 2011 hike!

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2010

We started at 6:30am and went up the Abol which was steep but not to bad, though I stayed a fair distance behind the person ahead because of the loose rocks which sometimes dislodged. Got to the top traveled some of the knife edge turned around because of time, went back to Baxter Peak, then down the Hunt. 12 hour hike that was awesome. Especially since we were able to hitch a ride back to our campsite at Abol. Haha.

Perfect day. Up and down in 7.5 hrs. Bagged Mt. Mansfield in VT the day before to make it two state high points in as many days. This is only high point #7 for me though. Easily the coolest mountain on the east coast.

First time climbing in New England and first time with my dad and my younger brother. An excellent but challenging climb. Wish the Chimney Pond trail had less rocks.
