Ascent Trip Report

2nd Summit of the day. A rocky ascent via the Airline with some steep sections but nothing too difficult. Valley Way to Madison Springs Hut to Mt. Madison Summit to Adams Summit Via the Airline Trail. Views from the summit were amazing. Could see Mt. Washington and Jefferson as well as recently summitted Madison. This summit is worth the views. We saw the smoke of the train on the Cog Railway up Mt. Washington.
