technicolorNHSerious wind  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2016


Two hours and seven minutes to the summit from the locked gate on CVR. The wind on the tiny section above tree line was about forty mph steady with gusts higher than that and my face and hands were freezing after only three minutes. It was about ten degrees colder than the day before on The Horn and Saddleback. No views to speak of until the descent when I got to see the cirque. Someone installed a nice board to use as a bridge to get over the creek at the bottom of Caribou Valley.

Climbed out of the fog on CVR and up to the summit where we had some fine views of the Crockers and Bigelows sticking up above the clouds. Also climbed in August '98 on my AT thru-hike.

Dropped packs and went up with cameras and water bottles. Great views if you ignore the radio tower. With one of the guys in my group, I ran up the trail from the AT to the summit. Lots of fun.

Climbed with Spaulding via the Appalachian Trail from Caribou Valley Road. Had a blast ascenting this really rugged section of the Appalachian Trail that runs along the rim of the Sugarloaf Cirque. Great views of the entrie Rangeley-Stratton region from the summit. Only saw a couple people, most of which were thru-hikers, during the whole day.

I had a great view of this mountain when I lived at Horns Pond. However, I only hiked up it once using the ski trails.

Easy side hike off the Appalachian Trail. Nice to see Sugarloaf Cirque, a view you don't get from anywhere at the ski resort.

Uneventful climb, somewhat tiring with overnight pack. Those double-diamonds are steep! Snow essentially gone from ski slopes.

Watch for a Spaulding page coming soon...

SheazulaBush wack  Sucess!


Took a trip up the loaf with some friends and made our own trail past the Salsa Shack on the backside, we had to bushwack up some steep shit. Great day though. Also hiked it this past winter at night for a full moon ride down the mountain. Also almost got lost up there this past august on my ME AT trek, its amazing how the clouds just roll in and something so familiar seems like a lost world, now I know how Don Fendler felt on Ktaadn.

woodstriderRoute Climbed: Spur trail off of AT Date Climbed: Aug 26, 1998  Sucess!


Only a short .5 mile or so hike off of the AT, yet almost no thru-hikers will take a side trip. But I was no thru-hiker and I took the side trip. I wasn't very impressed.
