Ascent of Mount Tremont on 2010-07-27
|Date:||Tuesday, July 27, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||3371 ft / 1027 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis climb completes my PB'S Lists "NH 52 WITH A VIEW" and "YMCA ALPINE CLUB LIST (NH, 100 highest trail peaks)".
*****NB: I would find out a year after this entry that the "NH 52 WITH A VIEW" list is an evolving one ..... 2 peaks were removed from the list and replaced by Black Mountain-Middle Peak and Mount Roberts. I therefore had to complete this list for the second time on Mount Roberts (see its TR).
I ascended from the northside TH on hwy#302, mile marker 54.8, east of Bartlett. The maintained trail is moderate except for the last half a mile which is fairly steep. The open summit with good views has a USA Geological Survey Marker imbeded on the rock outcrop.
My planned bushwack to the Northwest Peak was visible through the trees at a 330 degree compass reading, a good herd path left the west side of Tremont summit so I decided to go for it. I didn't travel very far to find out that the herd path was no longer available, animal track were evident with some moose droppings but no real path to follow. I am always amazed how these huge animals make there way through dense woods.
I stayed on the fairly narrow ridge, I passed a few large boulders and came to an open bump (rock outcrop) after 15 minutes and perhaps a third of the way over .... I could see the summit through the trees and the col still ahead. I continued/descended the bump only to decide to turn back, too dense/risky and I wasn't in a real bushwacking mood.
When I got back to the Tremont summit (after 45 minutes) I took a short break and decided to go over to Owls Cliff in order to bag a few more ascents, before descending to the TH. The two mile RT took 80 minutes. It's interesting to note that there is another USA Geological Survey Marker in a rock below the Tremont summit (on the southside) at the start of the Brunel Trail to Owls Cliff.
I HAVE BEEN A ROVER, I HAVE HIKED ALONE,
CLIMBED COUNTLESS MOUNTAINS, NEVER FINDING THE END,
STILL I AM VERY HAPPY, AND THE REASON YOU SEE,
ALL ALONG MY TRAILS, LIFE HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME.
