Spent the last week in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We were staying just North of the town of Jackson, very close to the Presidential Range, and had planned on a number of higher elevation summits. Slide Peak, Boott Spur, Mt Pierce and Mt Field were all on the roster. Consistent mid-intensity winds and snow in the high peaks changed things however. The first day out we climbed Slide Peak (also shown as Gulf Peak on certain maps) in total whiteout conditions above 3500 ft. The next day we had Mt Field in mind, but checking the forecast at the Crawford Notch AMC Highlands Center changed matters. Wind-chill nearing -30ºC lead us to Frankenstein Cliff and Arethusa Falls. The following day was even snowier, and a two-hour romp around Libeskind’s Loop and up to Lila’s Ledge in Pinkham Notch is all that was accomplished. The Cherry Mountain Trail to Mount Martha was next on the agenda, and this proved to be the snowiest of all; as a matter of fact, this was the only day that warranted snowshoes, otherwise we were using Microspikes (mini-crampons). On the final day, we went up the Northern branch of the Imp Trail, and the weather looked much clearer. Above 3000 ft. however we saw nothing, and found ourselves again in the clouds. In the end, the forest was beautiful and the exercise was appreciated.
