Ascent Trip Report

Awesome trail along the cascades and somewhat difficult - great step works. wacked up to Blue from height of the trail and proved to be quite hard. Branches caught zipper on pack and dragged out my fleece unbeknownst to me until i got to the summit and took the pack off. Managed to retrace my steps thru really thick stuff and find it. Over to Jim then tried to get Waternomee. don't know if I was at the summit - altimeter said 3890 but pressure was building so I don't know. Couldn't find any cans at any summit. Saw 6 other hikers all day. Moosilauke mostly in clouds but appeared to have rime near top.
