Nice Walk and Less Crowded  Sucess!

I'm probably one of the few who didn't do this in tandem with Cascade. We climbed from route 73 after canceling Big Slide because the weather forecast said peaks in the clouds. Less crowded than Cascade and the views to the South are almost as nice. Bagged Cascade again on the way back.

Black Flies  Sucess!

the day I climbed this was Black Fly day. Counted over 50 bites on the back of my neck alone when we finished. So needless to say not my favorite hike

Did in tandem with Cascade

Climbed this mountain a bunch of times now. Its usually much less busy than its close neighbor Cascade. So if you want a little more solitude head for Porter.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

We had maybe the perfect summer day for Cascade/Porter. Nice hike and really good views from Porter I thought. 9 hours total with my 5 year old son.

Route Climbed: Trailhead from 73 to Summit of Cascade, then to Porter. Date Climbed: November 21, 2004  Sucess!

Climbed this with Alan Meachum and my 4 month old Chocolate Lab, whom I named after this peak, "Porter." These were their first High Peaks unfortunately the views were non-existant, yet being in the clouds with so little visibility made this an exciting experience anyways. My pup did excellent for his first peaks... Alan did great too, pumping him up for his next 44!

This was my 2nd High Peak, done in the same day as Cascade. Weather was pretty bad, so no views but the mist and fog that surrounded us was beautiful none the less.

Nice climb but unfortunately the weather was not the best so we did not get to take in the views.

Bagged it as a side note to Cascade. It was a nice walk along the high summit ridge.

Views were nice, but the summit is not as open as Cascade. Would definitely suggest bagging both while you're up there, its not much of a jump from one to the other. It was cold, but the trees helped with some of the wind.

My third and my wife's second high peak. A bit disappointing after hitting Cascade a few minutes earlier. My advice is do Porter first, and then Cascade. I love hillman's entry by the way. Funny stuff.
