Mount Garfield  Sucess!

Climbed with Galehead via the Garfield Trail from Gale River Road. Beautiful trail leading up to Garfield's rocky and exposed summit. Great views of the Franconias, Twins and of the greater Pemigewasset Wilderness.

Icy in May  Sucess!

Moderate snowpack and the regular freezing and thawing made the steep ascent fun but exciting. Enjoyed a chance to use the crampons in late May.

Mt. Garfield trail  Sucess!

There was still some snow on the higher elevations. It was not a nice well packed down snow either, making things interesting. This was my 20th NH 4000er.

North to Maine  Sucess!

I really don't remember Garfield specifically, but since it's along the Appalachian Trail I must've hiked up it.

Stormy day  Sucess!

Wanted to continue on to Galehead, but thunder and a raging heel made the decision for me.

Route Climbed: From the north Date Climbed: 7/18/05  Sucess!

Garfield is an amazing summit to me ~ being able to look over and see Lafayette, Lincoln and Little Haystack looming in the distance. I had a clear day with spectacular views on the 4th day of our 5 day adventure. We stopped for over an hour on Garfield and had lunch. As promised, I said hello to my friends "Uncle John" whose ashes had been scattered there years ago.
