My favorite peak I've climbed in the NE.

MattGreeneFoggy Days  Sucess!
Climbed via the knife edge. Fog gave my hike an eerie quality. Does the sun ever shine in northern Maine?

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2004


Oddly, even though I had hundreds of miles of AT left to hike, I always remember summiting Katahdin as the height of my section hike. Descended via Knife Edge and hitched back to the ranger station for my gear.

MtnMagicSeveral times  Sucess!


There are few peaks that seem as out of place as this one. The only truly steep alpinish peak in the northeast. An incredible place. Hope to have the time to get some climbing in there during the winter time one day!

buzzdainerCompletion of A.T. thru-hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 1995
Of my several ascents of Mount Katahdin, this one was the most meaningful, as it was the culmination of a six-month trek on the Appalachian Trail. Kind of cold and blustery, but still magical.

kakakiwUp and down  Sucess!


Long time ago,date is real fuzzy, but did Katahdin leaving from Chimney Pond up to Pamola over the Knife Edge (it wasn't that bad, I loved it) and then down Cathedral Trail. Hmm, need a repeat.

I lived in Millinocket from 1984 to 1990, and climbed Katahdin perhaps a dozen times via all the standard trails. The most memorable was our winter ascent over President's day weekend in 1986, via the Hunt Trail.

After spending too much time in the approach cliff bands, bailed out of the Armadillo and climbed the horrendously loose 4th class stuff to its right directly to the summit. Not a recommended route.

J FoxKnife Edge: Climbed multiple times when I was a kid  Sucess!

J Fox

Growing up in Maine this was the king of the mountains. My Dad took me up this a number of times when I was younger. The Knife Edge probably got me hooked on scrambling for the rest of my life.

mountainloverCOFun Climb and a Beautiful Day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2007


Scrambled up the Cathedral Ridge route which was a blast and then descended via the Knife Edge (also a ton of fun). Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable day on the mountain-crystal clear blue skies all day and views as far as the eye could see. Katahdin was the most fun I've had climbing on the east coast!

Date Climbed: May 26, 2007


HP #26! It was a beautiful day to climb the Big K. Abol Trail was the only trail open due to snow and ice on the others. Hiked with Paul and we enjoyed views from the top as well as our traditional Reese's Peanut Butter Cups--yum! Steep and rocky, but what a mountain!!

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 1990


I originally planned to go in April, 1971. Trip after trip was cancelled, then as luck would have it, my brother-in-law got married in Maine...

My wife and I went up an easy route to the top, then went back on the knife edge. Before we started off on the edge, she turned to me and said, "I want you to know I'm doing this only because I love you".
