Ascent Trip Report

Stonybrook trail and Carter-Moriah trail

Snow spitting greeted us about half the way up, but we were prepared. We were in and out of light snow most of the hike, about 2 inches by peak and a definite line on descent about 2500 ft.

Other climbers had passed us at a water break. On top there were 6 people and two dogs who greeted me with cheers and applause....

My wife had told them it was my last 4000 footer.
