Ascent Trip Report

Day two of hiking, took on Cannon Mountain (Profile Mountain) using the Kinnsman Ridge trail from the North, next to the tramway leaving point at the base. This trail was VERY steep at times, and had a sandy kitty litter consistency for the first half mile making it hard. The rest of the way was wet granite, no walk in the park either. Had a great view of the tower from the false summit, and great views of the rest of the Kinsmann ridge and Franconia ridge from the summit tower.
