Comments
Comments: Nice hike. Cool in the morning, fairly breezy on exposed portions of the Carter ridge. Norman (Yellow Bear) had a blast on this one, especially descending the ski trail at the end of the day. It made for a nice descent especially after the rather long and rough north-to-south traverse, with the especially-demanding Carter Notch coming after having already covered 10 miles. Load of tourists on top of Wildcat D from the gondolas. We saw some groups both at the top and at the bottom, due to the relatively quick ski-trail descent. Cudos to wife for motivating me up south side of Carter Notch.
