mountainhareKatahdin second attempt  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2011

The day before, I foolishly tried to force a climb through some inclement weather. But the next morning dawned clear and beautiful, so I stayed past my Baxter reservation and climbed the Abol slide en route to the summit. Best decision I could make. The Abol slide, the table, Baxter Peak, all amazing and well worth the trip.

Certainly one of the greatest mountains in the East. Amazing views in all directions. First state highpoint accomplished and it was well worth it.

Wow... what a hike! Absolutely stunning scenery and beautiful weather made for a perfect day. Originally intended on doing Helon Taylor and the Knife edge, but it was rather windy so we opted for Saddle instead.

Amazing weather, 70+ degrees and fall colors, who could ask for more. This hike was more epic than i thought but an absolute blast. Up Cathedral down the Saddle

We had a great time, but although we could see the summit from the road in, once we hit the trail the mountain was socked in with no views. boo hoo
So we modified our plan: up Cathedral, down Saddle.

FlattlanderBest peak in the NE  Sucess!

Flattlander

IMHO. 2009 solo adventure on Knife Edge was great. Went back again with GF and a buddy and did the AT, which is also awesome. I want a winter ascent.

Climbed up the Saddle Trail and hit the top, where it was sunny and filled with people. There must have been 60 people at the top when I arrived. This peak had the most amazing views, and I can't wait to try it again via the Knife Edge route!

My partner on this climb has since passed away, and it is a very important place to me for that and many other reasons.

This was a fun, but challenging hike for me. Here is a link to the trails that I took. This was SHP #11 for me.

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!!
