Ascent Trip Report

Took two families up to stay at LL Hut on Saturday. Was able to get North and Main Kinsman completed after settling "newbies" into our bunk room at the hut. Left at 1:45PM and got back at 5:30PM with about 45 minutes of rest and viewing time. Did 7M in 3 hours which was a was pretty fast for me at about 2.3 mile per hour. Made it back to a fine turkey, mashed spuds, and corn dinner at the hut. Eat like a king and slept fairly well. Took everyone back down in the rain the next morning, but it was only 1.5M and the weather wasn't too bad. The peaks the day prior were outstanding. Could clearly see Camel's Hump and Mansfield in VT which was probably 60-80 miles away. Excellent viewing day!
