Ascent Trip Report

Didn't chance the water crossing and parked my car at Forest Road 511. Sunset hike - only party on the mountain. Very icy but worth the colorful views of Chocorua, Carrigain, and Passaconaway. Started at 3:30 and made it back to my car by 5:30 with just enough light left to not switch to my headlamp.
