Some time in Summer 2010
Part of a Presidential Traverse..
It's a short hike from Lakes of the Clouds. I climbed it to watch the sunset, and then ran back down with my headlamp on.
Easy stroll from Lake of the Clouds
partial presi traverse
A beautiful clear morning, all alone!
Always a great hike if you still have energy after MtW and Lakes of The Clouds.
Day hike up Washington on Crawford Path
Steep summit, great alpine garden all around summit base
Left Lakes of the Clouds Hut and headed up Monroe. Cool, breezy morning with great views of Washington and the upcoming peaks like Eisenhower.
Climbed with Pierce, Eisenhower and Franklin via the Crawford Path from Highland Center. Great weather and fantastic views for most of the day. By the time we reached Monroe's alpine summit the clouds over Washington had disappeared and we could finally see the Northeast's most infamous mountain in its entirety.
Climbed this during my Crawford Path hike. Initially, I bypassed this, thinking I would need my remaining energy for the summit to Mt Washington. After reaching Washington and a hot bowl of soup at the summit, I had plenty of rest to make it up Monroe. Nice view looking down the eastern face.
I had climbed this before with my son, using the Ammo trail. Had great views. But on this trip the weather really turned bad, with 80 MPH winds, sleet and freezing rain so Jay and I hightailed it to the refruge under the Lake of the Clouds hut. Eventually there were 3 through-hikers and 5 others also packing in. I got one of the top bunks and shared it with several mice who would wake me up by running over my chest. What a night. We did not summit this trip.
Did Eisenhower and Monroe on leg from Lake of the Clouds to Mizpah Springs huts
Cold temps, 14F with wind chill, when we stopped at Lakes of The Clouds for coffee before the summit. Great day. Hiked the Boot Spur from Hermit Lake. Cool hike.
Hiked in conjunction with Eisenhower.
good hike, nice views from the top.
Climbed a bunch of times. This is a great peak!

On the home stretch on a beautiful clear sunny day.
Third peak on a South to North Presidential Traverse. It was so foggy/cloudy that we had no idea where we were in relation to the summit. Almost got fooled by Little Monroe in the clouds. A little under 3 hours from Crawford Notch. Very windy also, seemed to be the story of the day.
