|Date:||Sunday, May 6, 2007|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||4080 ft / 1243 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe trail has been heavily damaged by April storms. Some areas of the Hi Cannon trail are completedly obliterated. The hike was exciting though, with all the blowdowns to navigate and some bushwhacking to relocate the trail when it was completely lost. Beautiful sunny day, the ledge at the ladder is ice-free now (woo hoo). There is still 1-3 ft of snow after the ladder and up to the peak. The tower was damaged significantly during this winter as well. Very pleasant day of hiking. Bagged #3 of 48!!!
