Best peak in the NE  Sucess!

IMHO. 2009 solo adventure on Knife Edge was great. Went back again with GF and a buddy and did the AT, which is also awesome. I want a winter ascent.

What a peak  Sucess!

Climbed up the Saddle Trail and hit the top, where it was sunny and filled with people. There must have been 60 people at the top when I arrived. This peak had the most amazing views, and I can't wait to try it again via the Knife Edge route!

First Climb  Sucess!

My partner on this climb has since passed away, and it is a very important place to me for that and many other reasons.

solo  Sucess!

Cathedral-Knife Edge-Helon Taylor, solo, just under 5 hours car-to-car. Blue-bird skies, almost no wind. Minimal bugs, too. Still a couple of snow patches left in South Basin. All in all a good day - too bad the drive is so damn long...

Thru hike perfect ending  Sucess!

via an AT thru-hike. snow flurries and no visibility on summit day but nonetheless a great cap to an awesome experience. at age 19, the months alone in my head on the trail were the best thing that ever happened to me...

Abol Slide scramble  Sucess!

Climbed via the Abol Slide Trail. Met many interesting people including a man who had summited Katahdin for the 46th time. 8 hours round trip including a leisure lunch at the summit. A clear day with great views. The black flies were brutal. State HP #47.

1st Highpoint  Sucess!

I climbed this mountain well before even thinking about climbing all 50 state highpoints which was not started until 9 years after this state. From what I can remember of this summit, it was extremely difficult but it started my love affair with hiking. Chimney pond was beautiful!!

Knife Edge  Sucess!

Maybe the best mountain in the East if you want some scrambling.

Re: On Our First Anniversary

This seems to contradict everything I was told before my hike. How did you find coming down Cathedral?

3rd times the charm  Sucess!

We tried to do this trip the last 2 winters, and only now were we able to summit. Well worth the wait. One of the better North Eastern peaks. Massive, impressive, big, and intimidating. Great trip though. We squeezed in between 2 big snow systems, and were able to be the only people on the mountain that week. We went up the Cathedral trail, and back the same route. Amazing. What a good trip!

Katahdin in September  Sucess!

Up Dudley, over the Knife Edge and down the Saddle, from Chimney Pond. 4.5 hours for this, not counting the trip back down to the trailhead. Knife Edge was in the clouds the whole time, which probably made the hike go faster as there were no pictures to take. It did clear out towards the end, though, with some nice views of the mountain cloaked in yellow from the fall birches.
