WoundedKneeFranconia Ridge Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007


Windy and wet, especially the 2 miles on the ridge - reminded me of Ireland. Low 40s with 40 mph wind gusts, but still a nice break from the 100 degree weather in the south. 5 and a half hour trip, including coffee at the Greenleaf Hut. I'll bet nice views were to be had from the ridge. Guess I'll have to find out another time.

mountainloverCOFranconia Ridge Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2007


Climbed this one on my first hike on the wonderful Franconia Ridge Traverse loop. Unfortunately, it was very windy at the summit (perhaps gusting between 50 and 60mph), and no views were to be had on the summit of Lafayette. Was still a fun hike though.

7 hours. Climbed counter-clockwise up falling waters. Great day, sunny and in the 60's. Nice views to the Presidentials still with some snow. Ideal day in the White Mountains.

dobsonianFirst Winter Summit-Bridle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2006


Was trying to get in Franconia ridge before the winter took hold and this was 1 of 3 possible weekends. Made last minute reservations into Manchester and met up with 2 friends from MA. Planned on doing the entire ridge but snow and ice from Friday/Saturday slowed us to a crawl in places with several parties turning back at the agonies. At the AMC hut noticed everyone coming down had campons and we were bare booting it but pushed on. Hit the summit in about 3.5 hours and saw the weather coming in over cannon so decided to get off the peak and use bridle back too. Guess Lincoln and Little Haystack will have to wait for another day. My first winter summit of anything so that was an extra special prize.

eric bFlume slide trail to Franconia ridge traverse  Sucess!

Beautiful view of cannon cliff and Lafayette was shrowded in clouds. two cars is key. start south working northward was easier than climbing up the Greenleaf trail for me (tried rock climbing at Eagle cliff before i knew there were route books. it wasnt a good idea. very rugged, the Franconia area is amazing. the traverse is a cakewalk.

Great hike. Went on a crowded day and left a little late. All of the camping areas were full so we ended up sleeping on the trail in the rain.

Climbed it as part of a four day Pemmi wilderness traverse from Lincoln woods to Crawford notch. Fog rolled in right as we reached the summit and we didn't see anything.

sprossedaRoute Climbed: water trail - Lincoln - ridgeline - Bridal trail Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!


Went over Lincoln first, then along Franconia ridgeline (magnificent) and up to Lafayette. Views are awesome. Franconia ridge is one of the most spectacular mountain areas in the eastern US. Lafayette is a beautifully sculpted alpine mountain. Went down bridle trail. Entire day is full of views. Spectacular!
