Ascent Trip Report

Left just after sunrise. Nice 9.8 mile snowshoe loop from Ferncroft, to Old Mast Road, to Square ledge, to Passaconaway Summit, back down Dicey Mill to Ferncroft. Started a fat grouse on Square Ledge trail ...sounded like a helicopter suddenly taking off just 3 feet from you...also saw a pine marked up with bear claws - very impressive. The Bowl was beautiful as was Whiteface. Excellent views of Tripyramids...makes me want to go back..

Headlamped out the last mile.

Joined by Bilbo and the Black Prince.
