Ascent Trip Report

Plan 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.
