Ascent Trip Report

Old Bridle trail up, solo, some serious ice even this late in the winter season. Maybe seemed worse since I was climbing with boots-only and the ice-covered faces near the summit made it a little more difficult than necessary. Absolutely amazing hike though, the best I've had in nearly two years of NH!
