Current Presidential Traverse underway...

Postby Pyroman9 » Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:12 pm

hey all,
I am in NH now and leave in the morning with one other to hike the presidential range. We will post pics, trip report, trail conditions, and whatever else you want if you post quick and i see it tonight. We plan to make it a two day hike, maybe three due to weather.

the weather is suppose to be really nasty. Winds with gust over 100mph, temps -50F. We have goretex pro shell and many layers, so we should be alright. I am very confident in our gear and have used it a lot.

We plan to take the brookside trail --> Watson path -->madison and then follow the ridge down to the webster cliff trail.

Let me know what you guys want, I will try and get it.

Wish us luck,
Eric

Good luck -- that's a tough wind above treeline. Travel safe.

you may want to stay on the Valley way as it is broken out, not so much with the trails mentioned. No matter how much Gortex you have the wind will be your biggest obstacle, good luck.
