Fred and I started at the AMC center - Pinkham Notch

Hiked up via Lions Head trail. Dicey ledge mid-way towards summit (would not be a great descent). Final 2000'climbing rocks. Scrambling. Bushwhacky, narrow trail

Descended via Tuckerman's Ravine trail, mostly big steps. Since it rained, felt less risky to descend a more moderate trail.

No views at the summit, foggy! Sun broke out on and off enroute to summit and enroute back, but mist covered at the summit
