Ascent Trip Report

Northern Presi traverse on picture perfect day - ideal conditions - warm, just a light breeze, sun, no bugs. Was nice to linger on the summits. Went with Jeff and Mark Tuckerman. Could've spent all day up there. Just a bit of monorail on trails heading up/down. Above treeline generally clear except a few snowfields around Jefferson.
