Ascent Trip Report

Climbed with a group as part of Flags on the 48, in memorial of 9/11. We raised the American Flag at noon on a spectacular day. Flags could also be seen with the naked eye on Lincoln, Flume and Cannon.

Weather was spectacular, temps in the high 40's/low 50's, wind in the high teens and low twenties. Visibility was nearly 100 miles.

Up and down via the Greenleaf Trail, which is relentless in elevation gain and very rocky in places. Virtually no views until you get past the Greenleaf Hut, then spectacular views all over the white mountains.
