Ascent Trip Report

It took us roughly 15 minutes of easy scrambling to finally reach Katahdin's summit from near Katahdin South. It was now 4:00pm. The others had been waiting for a while so we celebrated quickly. We took a few group pictures and ate a bit before setting off towards Table Lands. We would take Saddle trail all the way down to Chimney Pond.

There weren't any hikers up on the mountain anymore. We made our way down pretty quickly to the col where we found the intersection that leads into the rock chute serving as a trail. I didn't like the terrain at all and thought it was a perfect spot for injury. Philippe's background knee problem (he had torn a ligament a year ago) was a concern here so we tread very carefully. The first pitch was very steep and crumbly with fine pebbles forming uneven talus in some places. We were glad when we reached the first shrubs and the trail became less perilous. Shrubs were replaced by trees as we leveled off on the basin floor. We finally made it to the ranger station around 6:00pm. There we checked out and talked a few minutes with the ranger. Then Luiza and I had to go setup our lean-to while Philippe, Myriam, and Brigitte had to hike all the way down to Roaring Brook.

The evening was uneventful as we prepared for a clear sky night. We went to Chimney Pond so I could filter some water and watched the stars come up. Later on, I met our neighbors, fellow Quebecers, who were having trouble hanging their food up on the bear line. I lent them a carabiner and it did the trick. We spent some time chatting as the moon rose above Pamola's northern ridge. I realized it was almost 9:00pm and I was wearing only long underwear; the weather was definitely perfect.

I returned to the lean-to and we went to sleep. During the night, the wind picked up pretty strongly. We were well sheltered by some trees but we still got pelted by their needles and seeds due to all the shaking about. It was hard not to get awakened by the wind as it created a very strong rumble in the basin as it rushed down in it. Still, we did get a decent amount of sleep.
