"Third time's the charm"

After failing to summit Princeton in October 2009 and reaching Tigger Peak without attempting Princeton in December 2009, Jeff and I were at last privileged to stand on its lofty summit January 30 2010.

It was a gorgeous day. Jeff had started separately. I met up with Dan and Jim and we all rendezvoused at the snowshoe cache to finish the arduous hike to the summit.

Round-trip time was 12 hours over 11.3 miles from the lower TH at 8900'.
