complete pemi loop with Zealand Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2012
Good climbing friend dave and I completed the pemi loop hiking over 38 miles climbing 14 different summits in under 22 hrs. We even made a swing onto Zealand Mt to get em all taken care of. Conditions were wet at lower elevation with snow up high along with patchy ice between the rocks.. Traverse Franconia ridge at night through 60 mph winds and driving snow. That was intense..The mountains were great for the most part ,but much of the hike was in the trees. For every 10 minutes of exposure we had to hike an hour enclosed in brush...JW
