First summit of the day on my way north to Monroe. A nice, quick detour from Crawford Path, with some brilliant views north and east.

Date Climbed: May 6, 2015


I missed this peak on my Presidential Traverse in 2012 so I came back for it. The plan was to get Jackson and Webster too but after postholing for hours I was inclined to come back for the other two in the summer. Another hiker I ran into on the way down said it took him two hours to go from the summit of Jackson to the Mitzpah hut. Hard work.

Cool hike, stopped at Mizpah hut and enjoy the blueberry cake. Had to dash back to avoid a storm.

Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2013


This was my first winter hike in the Whites. The plan was to camp atop Mt. Pierce and then hit Eisenhower, Monroe, and Mount Washington the following day.

My solo camping experience atop Mt. Pierce was amazing. But, that was to be the highlight of the trip.

My canister stove died in the sub-zero temps so I had little water. I lost my balaclava somewhere in my pack. This left my face freezing in the high, cold wind. Most of all though, I didn't have any snowshoes or crampons. I was post-holing up to my crotch every other step. At one point I slipped into a snow-drift so deep than I was literally up to my neck in it. It took several frigid minutes trying to dig myself out.

Needless to say, I simply wasn't prepared to make it over to Eisenhower and beyond. I intend to buy some snow-shoes and a liquid fuel stove before I try such a trip again.

Beautiful place though, despite the failure! I'll try and post to photos soon.
