Too Crowded, but still amazing.  Sucess!

Stayed at liberty spring tentsite before heading on the franconia ridge for this one. Climbed liberty and flume the day before. now that i've linked those two up, i think i would fill water at liberty spring and then stay in between liberty and little haystack. There are some great spots in there.

Rough Start  Sucess!

Came up Falling Waters and left via Lincoln and Lafayette and the Old Bridle Path. First ascent almost did me in but I was in terrible shape. Definitely will do this traverse again!

Nice weather  Sucess!

Came over from Lincoln and Lafayette as I did the loop up Bridle path and down Falling Waters. Started at 0530, so avoided the crowds during most of the hike. Great weather and actually a bit cold in spots.

Falling waters  Sucess!

The waterfalls were beautiful covered in snow and ice. Perfect clear weather at the top, but windy and cold.

Luckily we reached this summit before the clouds rolled in and obstructed all views.

Little Haystack Climb  Sucess!

Did this mountain as part of the Franconia Ridge loop; an 8.9 mile trail over 6 summits. Cold, icy, very windy, exhausting, but exhilarating with excellent views of the Pemigewasset Wilderness when the weather is clear.

Franconia Ridge Traverse  Sucess!

Ran and Hiked up the Falling Waters Trail on the way to Lafayette and down the Old Bridal path. Absolutely beautiful - loved the Falling Waters trail!

Lots of Bugs  Sucess!

Climbed this in the morning after summitting Mt. Liberty. There were a ton of bugs up here, so many so, that the back of my shirt was literally covered with hundreds of them. We quickly moved on from here.

Fun in the clouds  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I set off on the Falling Waters trail around 6am, arriving at the summit of Little Haystack around 9:30am. From there we traversed the ridge to the summit of Mount Lincoln. From Lincoln we set off for the summit of Mount Lafayette around 12:15pm. We had zero visibility all day above treeline, making it tough to navigate certain sections and gauge how far we had to go. We finally have top of the line gear, except that my new new-matic BD sabretooth crampons kept popping off my Koflach arctis expe boots. After the 4th time they came off I switched to my hybrid crampons and life was swell. Took the Bridal Veil Falls trail 2.9 miles back to the trailhead, arriving around 3pm. Great day.

might not be an "official" summit but...  Sucess!

Climbed it between Liberty and Lincoln while I was doing a ridge traverse. The first time I did the ridge traverse was sometime in 2009.
