Comments
Comments: Lovely day to be out doing these two peaks. The ledges were dry and as tough as ever! Wonderful views from the outlook on South Whiteface.Lots of water on the upper part of Dicey's Mill trail going up to Passaconaway but the lower end is in great shape. As mentioned above the wide tree let us all practice our tightrope skills and we crossed with ease. Good day out with the OTHH with one newbie doing #s2&3. Met Steve with Skipper and one other man but no others on the trails.
