Bad Weather  Sucess!

Summited in a cloud the entire time, met sleet and Hail on the Knife Edge, still one of my favorite hikes.

Foggy Days  Sucess!

Climbed via the knife edge. Fog gave my hike an eerie quality. Does the sun ever shine in northern Maine?

Finishing the AT early  Sucess!

Oddly, even though I had hundreds of miles of AT left to hike, I always remember summiting Katahdin as the height of my section hike. Descended via Knife Edge and hitched back to the ranger station for my gear.

Several times  Sucess!

There are few peaks that seem as out of place as this one. The only truly steep alpinish peak in the northeast. An incredible place. Hope to have the time to get some climbing in there during the winter time one day!

Completion of A.T. thru-hike  Sucess!

Of my several ascents of Mount Katahdin, this one was the most meaningful, as it was the culmination of a six-month trek on the Appalachian Trail. Kind of cold and blustery, but still magical.

Up and down  Sucess!

Long time ago,date is real fuzzy, but did Katahdin leaving from Chimney Pond up to Pamola over the Knife Edge (it wasn't that bad, I loved it) and then down Cathedral Trail. Hmm, need a repeat.

It was home range for a while  Sucess!

I lived in Millinocket from 1984 to 1990, and climbed Katahdin perhaps a dozen times via all the standard trails. The most memorable was our winter ascent over President's day weekend in 1986, via the Hunt Trail.

Armadillo gulley  Sucess!

After spending too much time in the approach cliff bands, bailed out of the Armadillo and climbed the horrendously loose 4th class stuff to its right directly to the summit. Not a recommended route.

Knife Edge: Climbed multiple times when I was a kid  Sucess!

Growing up in Maine this was the king of the mountains. My Dad took me up this a number of times when I was younger. The Knife Edge probably got me hooked on scrambling for the rest of my life.

Fun Climb and a Beautiful Day!  Sucess!

Scrambled up the Cathedral Ridge route which was a blast and then descended via the Knife Edge (also a ton of fun). Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable day on the mountain-crystal clear blue skies all day and views as far as the eye could see. Katahdin was the most fun I've had climbing on the east coast!
