maybe the most crowds I have seen besides in Korea!
Nice ridge route.
Summit #4 in a traverse from Flume over to Garfield. I remember starting to get a little tired after passing over Lincoln. Reminded me a little of hiking in SE Alaska along ridgelines.
Hiked the classic Little Haystack, Lincoln, Lafayette. The first time was cloudy and rainy. Did it a little under a year later and was graced with a perfect day with almost no crowds.
Did a Pemi Loop over 2.5 days with a couple of friends. Going counter clockwise, camped at Guyot and Garfield tent sites. Saw an awesome lightning over a town to the north storm from Garfield; got hailed on in a lightning storm on the way out on the last day. Had a bottle of Bowmore with us.
Second summit of the day (Liberty was first and Lafayette was third). Great view from the summit which was nice because the weather got fickle by the time I hit Lafayette.
Hiked the classic Haystack-Lincoln-Lafayette loop with my father. Strong winds on the ridge but nice autumn views.
Came up Falling Waters across the ridge and down Bridal Path. Wrote more on Layefette climber's log.
Tagged this one along with Layfette.
Climbed this as part of a Franconia Ridge traverse. Came up Falling Waters over Little Haystack and back down Old Bridle Path. Great weather and magnificent views on top of Lincoln!
This was another 5000+ peak we reached on our Franconia Ridge loop. We packed my son's backpack with all his gear and did this day hike to see what's working and what's missing of his gear, in preparation for his West Coast Trail hike trip later that month. This was an awesome hike, grand views and good moderate challenge. Would do it again. Here is the loop we did, in reverse order http://www.dartmouth.edu/~doc/hiking/franconiaridge/
The Lincoln-Lafayette ridge is awe-inspiring on a clear day.
Blue skies, windy, and cold. Perfect for the last official full day of winter.
This was the second mountain summit reached after a counter-clockwise hike of the ridge loop.
Had to use wind goggles and crampons for the ridge itself. A bit icy in some spots
great great, cought in a Tstorm at the summit
Old Bridle Path
Backpacked over top in a storm.
Hiked up to Little Haystack and then tagged Lincoln on my way to Lafayette. Nice day
Climbed it last in '07 from the Falling Waters Trail, one of several times that I've done it. The views from the top have always been amazing, but it was crowded during Labor Day Weekend.
Climbed late winter on route to Lafayette.
Weather wasn't cooperating which was a bit anti-climactic, but a fun 17 mile walk nonetheless.
