Route Climbed: AT (SOBO) Date Climbed: July 22, 2005  Sucess!

One more false summit would make this peak even better, don't ya think? After leading 9 teenagers from Garfield, finally reaching the summit was a blessing and well worth the climbing. We were enroute to Greenleaf Hut for the evening and had a nice clear day on the ridge.

Route Climbed: Old Bridal Trail Date Climbed: August, 2004  Sucess!

Fantastic hike on a hot day. Trail is easy going, small scrambles on the agonies. Meeting the hut at treeline is a welcome site to those low on water. Views are beautiful ascending the ridge.

Route Climbed: Bridle Path - Falling Waters loop (both directions) Date Climbed: several  Sucess!

Easy to see why this is such a popular hike. Go during the week if possible, or during the winter.

Hiked up Falling Waters Trail, brought the ice climbing gear and soloed Shining Rock... I'd say it goes at WI2 for a little over 100'.

Wahoo, this is a great climb. It doesn't let up, but its well worth it. If only it wasn't so popular, but its no wonder why it is.

Route Climbed: Complete double traverse Date Climbed: June 18, 1994  Sucess!

Have done the traverse many times. The most interesting was when we hiked up the Slide Trail on Flume, then went N over Liberty, Little Haystack, and Lincoln, to the summit of Lafayette. The we turned arund and traversed the other way, back to Liberty and descended from there. Brutal!

Route Climbed: Bridle to Greenleaf to summit Date Climbed: June 1992  Sucess!

Nice hike up from Franconia Notch. Tony was getting married in a day or two at Lonesome Lake on the Cannon side of the notch and we decided to climb Lafayette one day. Good views of Cannon Cliff. Met the part of the wedding party halfway up and the little girl was climbing in plastic bolo sandals!

Date Climbed: September, 2003  Sucess!

A clear sky when we start traveling to New Hampshire.



But the mountain are the only place where it rains. We got a lot a rain and get lost in the fog. Thanks to Geneviève, we make it back. She know her way in the forest.



Tanks again Geneviève.

Route Climbed: Franconia ridge traverse (both directions) Date Climbed: multiple times, 1970's  Sucess!

Until I went out west, this was my favorite hike. Multiple ascents in the summer, one ill fated attempt in the winter (terrible weather- we never got even close to tree line and became drenched on our second day of camping when the temperature suddenly rose about 15 degrees. We dried out a day later in an all-night laundromat in Littleton), but each time was great.
