Ascent Trip Report

This was a winter night hike started at 4 pm. Hoping for half moon illumination but clouds foiled that part of the plan. Wonalancet Range trail broken to the shortcut and to end of shortcut. We opted to not do Wonalancet due to ice. Pitch black around the time we got to the end of the shortcut. Unbroken trail to Walden was fun. Walden trail was hard to follow and Nanamocomuck was a bitch of a climb - the crux of the whole outing. Walden was unbroken until the Square ledge junction when it was very well packed but in great shape. It was the best trail condition I have ever seen. We flew up to the summit and then the way down Dicey's Mill was extremely easy. A great trip -- done at 11.30 PM
