Ascent Trip Report

An early very warm start at 5:30 a.m. on a quick pace, was surprised to have a speed hiker--jogger with dog trailing close behind me a quarter mile before Stowe Pinnacle. At summit views were limited due to haze so left quickly for Mt. Hunger. Trail in good shape easy to follow, was starting to feel the effects of the previous days climbs and heat, by the time I passed over Mt. Hunger and got to the Skyline Trail junction I was already running low on water, the previous days climbs in the heat, with the current high humidity even at 3500 el. and getting sick on the ridge forced me to abort my planned seven summit day on this range and I just continued on to Mt. Putnam,then retraced my route back to trail head.
