Comments
Comments: Excellent conditions for this hike with low winds,and plenty of sun. The Ammonoosuc trail was is great shape with a solid base. Micros were ideal until the steeps at which time I switched to snowshoes for the help of the Televators and additional traction.Snowshoed over to Boot Spur which was mostly unbroken crusty snow/ice of minimal depth. After Boott Spur crampons went on not needed but needed to acclimate my feet to. These remained on through Mt Washington,Ball Crag,Mt Clay. I switched back to snowshoes shortly after getting on the Jewell Trail as the snow was soft and track was getting tilled up. A solid base remains for now but highly recommend snowshoes for this trail. It was nice seeing Hiker Ed today as well as being introduced to a few fellow Gridders and chatting with several hikers enjoying this beautiful weather. There were smiles for miles today in every direction.
