Lips74Late Summer Storm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2008

Lips74

Started in Appalachia at 6:30 PM and climbed the rather long Howker Ridge. Made camp at 8 PM at the Howker Ridge-Pine Link Junction. Woke up at Midnight to head to the summit but ascended into dense clouds and driving rain/sleet. Nasty conditions made for a quick summit and ugly descent to Star Lake with lots of trouble following the cairns because of terrible visibility. Forced a miserable bivy near the lake to warm up and wait for conditions to improve.

Climbed with Rick & Paul. First peak on our Presi Traverse. Stayed in the Madison Hut Thursday night and ventured off toward Adams & Company the next morning. Warm, windy, rocky and tough!

Climbed with Adams and Jefferson via the Gulfside Trail from Lakes of the Clouds. A steep rocky climb up from the Adams-Madison col. Surprisingly few people even on this bright sunny day. Very windy on the summit though. It was around here when I started to get a really bad sunburn.

This was the very first summit I ever reached! Weather was much warmer than we had expected. Stayed one night in the Madison AMC hut and thoroughly enjoyed it. Decent was tough but well worth the amazing views.

A little windy but the views were endless as the summits of the northern presidentials were above the clouds. Awesome pics taken of the moon rise over the summit on our way down.

Came up Valley way in just under 3 hours. Clouds broke as we got to Madison Hut with temps in the 20's and no wind. Great views south towards Washington and north for hundreds of miles. Hiked back down to the hut then across Gulfside to Spur Trail staying the night at Crag Camp. Best weather I have ever seen up there summer or winter.

In fall it was great, but last winter was the best! Getting above treeline is amazing in the presi's when bluebird skies are out!
