Route Climbed: Gulfside to Lowe's Path - Return via Israel Ridge Date Climbed: August 11, 2002
Great day for climbing in the Presidentials! So hot I came home with major sunburn! 68 degrees on Washington. I did a loop of Jefferson & Adams. Went up Lowe's Path which is only 0.3 mi from the Gulfside Trailhead at Thunderstorm Junction. Just a lot of rock hopping to the top. Views were unreal! 2nd only to Washington for best overall view in all the Presies. Wish I could've spent more than 5 minutes at the summit, however the black flies were in full force: annoying & biting! Hope to do this again next year taking either Airline or King Ravine.

decided to do a winter hike just before New Years day...was perfect weather, warm and sunny all the way and almost no wind. Took photos on the top shirtless. The rime-covered rocks do require crampons and damage the points quite a bit, but other than that no technical problems - its a walk up.
