Via Gulfside to Airline  Sucess!

After losing Flanders on Jefferson, I hiked up this one to do a loop looking for him. No visibility and high winds with rain. It stunk. Found my way down the backside and went to Madison Hut and then started backtracking on Gulfside where we finally found each other. Eighth peak on a south to north Presidential Traverse.

Airline maybe?  Sucess!

120 miles of visibility...only the second day this year! In talking to locals they said that many of them had been in the area multiple times and NEVER had a day like that. Part of a pseudo traverse. This was our last mountain before basically running down to the Madison Hut for dinner at 6! Probably one of the more imposing summits looking at it from the distance.

Route Climbed: airline trail Date Climbed: June 2002  Sucess!

Just cleared from a rain storm. Was pushed down by 70 mph winds above treeline! (Checked winds the next day at Mt. Washington visitor center). Detoured from King ravine over to Starr lake and around backside to summit. Good choice. Excellant mountain with grand views of Washington and Madison. On way back went up to summit Madison also. Great day of ~12 miles / 5,000 ft. vertical. Clear as can be visibility!

Route Climbed: Lowe's Path Date Climbed: Summer 1989  Sucess!

Caught brief glimpses of Washington through clouds. Otherwise amused ourselves by holding our hands up and letting the wind smack black flies into our hands.

Route Climbed: Osgood Trail to parapet Date Climbed: June 2004  Sucess!

Hiked all the presidentials on the longest day of the year. A long day starting at 3 am and ending on rte 302 at 6 pm. I recommend this hike as the intro to the New England classic death marches.

Route Climbed: Air Line, descended Watson Path from Mt Madison Date Climbed: 11 june 2005  Sucess!

Drenchingly humid in the morning, even the mosquitoes were reluctant to move around much. Clouds and fog much of the day, some sunlight in the afternoon, distant thunder. Spooky insect swarms just at the summits.

Seen from the highway: 1 moose, 1 turkey, 1 huge turtle/tortoise plodding along the breakdown lane.

Great views of the cog railway from the top. It produces a rather alarming amount of smoke. On another trip I had the pleasure of being right under the cloud of coal as it rained down over the trail. It's much more pleasant to watch from Mount Adams.

Route Climbed: Airline Date Climbed: august 28, 1998  Sucess!

Very surreal summit completely fogged out but bright with filtered sunlight. Not a breath of wind either and I was completely alone. I can see why this is regarded (by some, at least) as one of the mystical places in the world.

Route Climbed: Great Gulf -> Madison Gulf -> Airline Date Climbed: September 2003  Sucess!

Great hike, long day, but well worth it. Went in on the Great Gulf trail to Madison Gulf, up to Madison Hut, over to Adams on Airline, back down to Madison Hut, over the Osgood Trail to Madison, down Osgood to the Great Gulf trail and back out.
