Ascent Trip ReportPlan was to do the Wildcat traverse, but I'm hiking solo with only one car. My solution was to park at the 19 Mile Brook trailhead then hitch a ride down to the AMC center. It only took about 15 minutes to get a ride from a kind pair of guys. Starting out about 6:30 AM it was a bit cool. No views good views of Washington on the way up - it was in clouds from the ravines up all day. I had a grey ceiling most of the day. I got rained on a little today - maybe 30 minutes total of light rain. When leaving Wildcat D, I got confused and ended up walking down a s ki trail for a 100 yards or so, but a short bushwhack corrected the problem. I was chilly all day, but sweating too much at the same time to put on any extra clothes. My favorite spot was on top of Wildcat A looking down Carter Notch at the roofs of the AMC hut. Then climbed down to the hut where I stopped in to sit and eat some lunch. I was feeling really good and Carter Dome was sooo close, so I added Carter Dome to the trip. Then, I just had to hit Mt Hight which was the best views of the trip. I loved the walk down 19 Mile Brook trail walking along the beautiful river like that. Great trip, but a lot more difficult than the mileage and elevation suggests.
