Grampahawkalmost perfect weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2014


Did the full traverse. We were going to try it in 24 hours but, despite a forecast for clear skies, rain began as we approached Jefferson (welcome to the Whites) so we decided to descend to the Perch and sleep in the leanto. Finished the next day I absolute perfect weather. 60 degrees, slight breeze and crystal blue skies.

Did the single-day Traverse (+Clay) with my buddy from school. Done in 19.5 hours, even with my friend's re-aggravating an old knee injury while descending Washington (he's a tough guy, ha)!

OY OY OY Friggin Freeeezin'! I remember getting up late at night and seeing the moon over the snow/ice. Very beautiful. It was worth crawling out of my warm sleeping bag for! We came up Crawford -> Washington Great fun. Got me hooked on winter camping, bigtime. My first experience with spruce traps!

Three buddies and I got up early one summer morning nailed both the North and south Traverse in 14 hours. It took us a while because we kept taking pictures. Great hike!!

chris615Route Climbed: I can't remember Date Climbed: Aug 2004  Sucess!


North and South Pres, from Pinkham Notch to Crawford Notch. Started up Old Jackson Road and from to Mt Madison.... from that point on I can't remember what way I took

nartrebRoute Climbed: Valley Way, Gulfside, Crawford Path, summit loops Date Climbed: 10 sept 2005


13 hours trailhead to trailhead, 8 hours Madison summit to Pierce summit under the clearest skies I've seen since December. See the Trip report.

A year or so later I did a south-to-north traverse starting at Webster, started late and didn't go as fast, bailed down Valley Way without doing Madison.
