Ascent Trip ReportThe goal for this trip was to climb the Six husbands trail. Started saturday evening and hiked through the night. The trail was long but easy from Rt 16 to the beginning of Six Husbands.
The steep section of Six Husbands I started up around midnight. It was steep, but certainly not as extreme as the descriptions online let on. There was only one difficult section just above the ladders, it was exposed and at midnight with a bright moon, it was alot of fun. The fun ended too soon though and I was at the top before I knew it. I decided to take the Edmands Col cutoff trail instead of going for Jefferson's summit. The cutoff trail was very cool at night as there was just enough light to see Jefferson Ravine. No good for pictures, but cool to see.
The trek across Edmands Col the way around Adams sucked as it was blowing, chilly, and I was pretty tired. Night solo hiking always seems to involve a little bit of self loathing, and that kicked in here. You start getting tired and realize that you have been up for a long time and should be sleeping instead. Anyway, I finally got to the Madison hut and took a break to fill up on water and get a snack. I decided to take the Parapet trail around Madison instead of going over the top, and that was a mistake. Parapet trail sucks, it's just one rock slide after another that you have to cross. It was a long morning taking Parapet to the Osgood path, which also felt longer than it was.
The sun rose just as I was getting back to the parking lot. Fun hike, with a little self loathing. Good times.
