Ascent Trip Report

Great day for a Kinsman Ridge traverse with Jeff, Heather and Kali. Started at the Tramway around 8ish. Made quick time up to Cannon. Saw a porcupine while going over the Cannonballs (luckily we kept Kali away from it) and up over the Kinsmans in good time. From South Kinsman to Rte 112 was new territory for all of us. Real steep and rocky coming off South Kinsman (!) and pretty trails with lots of up and downs the rest of the way. Tougher than we expected (we had not given the trail enough credit), but we still made great time and had a great day with gorgeous weather. Felt good to push the mileage on back to back days.
