Route Climbed: Airline Date Climbed: 8/17/96 First time  Sucess!

This was one I should have done sooner! It is actually more of an elevation change than Mt. Washington. I found it tough especially above tree line, it gets the brute force of the wind when it is blowing.

Route Climbed: Gulfside to Lowe's Path - Return via Israel Ridge Date Climbed: August 11, 2002  Sucess!

Great day for climbing in the Presidentials! So hot I came home with major sunburn! 68 degrees on Washington. I did a loop of Jefferson & Adams. Went up Lowe's Path which is only 0.3 mi from the Gulfside Trailhead at Thunderstorm Junction. Just a lot of rock hopping to the top. Views were unreal! 2nd only to Washington for best overall view in all the Presies. Wish I could've spent more than 5 minutes at the summit, however the black flies were in full force: annoying & biting! Hope to do this again next year taking either Airline or King Ravine.

Route Climbed: Air Line trail, durand ridge Date Climbed: december 2000  Sucess!

decided to do a winter hike just before New Years day...was perfect weather, warm and sunny all the way and almost no wind. Took photos on the top shirtless. The rime-covered rocks do require crampons and damage the points quite a bit, but other than that no technical problems - its a walk up.

Mount Adams is always a good time. The presidential traverse is a "must do" for any serious New England hiker.
