rickfordNice Intro to the Whites  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2012


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.

MonopoleMadison, and more...  Sucess!


Climbed it via different routes, in all different seasons (including, of course, as the first peak in a Southbound Presi Traverse), but I've never had a day when I've climbed only Madison.

Ascent via Madison Gulf trail; descent via Webster Scout trail. Aborted an earlier attempt in the late 1960's due to bad weather.

Date Climbed: May 29, 2010


This time, with no dog. I made it to the summit, down to the Madison hut, and then on to Mt Adams. I took the Parapet trail back after meeting a very pretty girl from New York at Star Lake who needed directions for the same trail I planned on using. Who was I to say no to having a pretty girl as a hiking buddy back down to the trailhead?
Great weather, no fog, hardly much wind, tons of little vampiric blood sucking black fruit flies, and a pretty girl for conversation down the mountain.
One great day!

Climbed Madison via Valley Way from the Appalachia trailhead. Weather was a bit chilly but skies were crystal clear, not a cloud in sight!

Date Climbed: Dec 5, 2009


This was part of the Presidential traverse we did on that day.The climb up was very tough.We started at 3am and had to hike over much blowdown before reaching the treeline.This was amazing for me because this was my first trip to the Whites.The veiw from the summit was breathtaking.Imagine looking arcross the great gulf above all clouds over to the first veiw of the mighty Mt.Washington.It didn't take much for me to fall in love with these mountains.This is where it all began....Jim W

MRoyer4Start of Presidential Traverse  Sucess!


Climbed as a 10 year old with my father from Pinkham Notch as the first part of a Presidential Traverse. Stayed in the Monroe hut. I remember some bouldery sections on the trail that were exciting for a 10 year old, probably less so today.

Many years ago a buddy and I drove up. We took the daniel webster Trail/Great Gulf. Sorry I don't remember much about the trip except that we stayed at Dolly Copp and drank a lot of beer.
