Did this as part of a long hike up Mount Adams, Jefferson, Monroe, and Madison. I don't remember the order, just that my buddy Chris and I were exhausted at the end of the day and having to stop to make some food in the dark because I was so hungry.

Finally bagged Madison on my 2nd attempt. First was a bust in the Winter when a -40 windchill blue bird sky day payed me a visit on my way up to Adams and Madison. Finally bagged in in the Spring. Stayed at Crag Camp Friday night, hit Adams in the morning and dropped my pack and summited Madison within an hour in high winds and low visibility. It was eerie but I made it out alive.

Walked up on 01/08/14 during the 'Polar Vortex' sweeping the Northeast. Started at the Appalachia parking lot via Airline trail to the Madison Hut and then followed the Osgood trail to the summit. Bitingly cold and windy at the top but clear, as opposed to the nearby Mt. Adams which was all covered in clouds. According to the Mt. Washington Weather Observatory it was around -15F (with -35F windchill) that day. Returned quickly via the Valley Way trail. Awesome winter hike!!!

Crawled up Madison after doing Adams via the Air Line Trail, took the Pine Link to the Watson Path, .5 miles of rock pile, then the Brookside back. The Brookside was very dark, eerie, and only saw tracks from one other hiker, no crowds on this one. Got a little ill from overexertion after seeing a beautiful, plush, mossy area that The Elves might enjoy or even inhabit from time to time. Kept trucking down after being sick, made it out though. This was the most strenuous hike of all the NH 5000+ footers for me, but also the one with great weather and splendid views.

Started at 835 AM and made it to the top via Valley and Watson Path by 11 AM. Felt like it took me too long compared to previous trips up Adams in similar weather but the whole traverse only took me thirteen hours so maybe it was just me being anxious.

Part of a north-to-south presi traverse dayhike, Madison to Webster. Great conditions until just before the Mizpah hut, at which point there was some lightning and hail.

Camped by Rt. 16 at a Campground. I started the hike at 5:00AM with hopes of completing a partial traverse from Madison to Washington. I made it Mount Clay before my knees started giving out (did not expect so many boulders!!!). Came down the Sphinx Trail and linked up with the Lower Great Divide Trail (?) to get back to the campsite. It was a long, fun day! Can't wait to get in better shape and try it agian soon.

Planned to do the traverse with my brother but after Madison he was smoked. Very warm and humid but a beautiful day. Watson Path is a bit rugged and does not appear often traveled.
