dirthPresidential Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2007


Sixth, and unfortunately final, peak on a South to North Presidential Traverse, didn't have time to get Madison. Summited around 2:30, tried to make it down Airline and back to the hiker shuttle by 4:20. Needless to say, we didn't make it. Long day.

mountainloverCOTraverse from Jefferson  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2007


Did the long (2.5mi) traverse over from Jefferson in rainy, foggy weather and a visibility of 20 feet or so. We basically followed the route from cairn to cairn until we reached the summit of Adams, which we had all to ourselves. It was a LONG, hard traverse over talus back to Jefferson and down the Caps Ridge!

Went up Adams via the Airline Route. Outside of the rime ice on last leg, this was a perfect day and a perfect trip. After Adams I did Madison as well.

Great hike. A bit windy but not too cold. The clouds rolled in at dusk and mixed with the sunset, giving us a red orange light show.

Went up the Airline trail. I liked it a lot. A bit windy at the top, but nothing too crazy. Great views.

bidwelldkPres Traverse  Sucess!


I've climbed Adams a couple times doing the pres traverse (twice in summer, once in winter), never climbed it by itself. Would love to spend more time on this one.

After losing Flanders on Jefferson, I hiked up this one to do a loop looking for him. No visibility and high winds with rain. It stunk. Found my way down the backside and went to Madison Hut and then started backtracking on Gulfside where we finally found each other. Eighth peak on a south to north Presidential Traverse.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2006


120 miles of visibility...only the second day this year! In talking to locals they said that many of them had been in the area multiple times and NEVER had a day like that. Part of a pseudo traverse. This was our last mountain before basically running down to the Madison Hut for dinner at 6! Probably one of the more imposing summits looking at it from the distance.

sprossedaRoute Climbed: airline trail Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!


Just cleared from a rain storm. Was pushed down by 70 mph winds above treeline! (Checked winds the next day at Mt. Washington visitor center). Detoured from King ravine over to Starr lake and around backside to summit. Good choice. Excellant mountain with grand views of Washington and Madison. On way back went up to summit Madison also. Great day of ~12 miles / 5,000 ft. vertical. Clear as can be visibility!
