Comments
Comments: Hot day for a hike! Climbing Whiteface was a lot steeper than I remember from 2014. I completed this hike in 6.5 hours. Working on red lining, so I was able to cross Rollins trail off. Since I've already done Passaconaway, I decided not to go to summit. One important note is that the USGS marks the summit with a plaque on the false summit right above the ledges. True summit is about another .4 miles along the trail and is marked with a small cairn. There is no open area, view, or a widening in the trail. If you thought you already reached summit, you wouldn't even think the cairn was marking anything.
