Ascent Trip ReportMt. Moriah
Me, mom and dad started up the Imp trail this morning with the plan to do the Carter’s, but the temps are in mid 20’s and there is a very strong wind. We weren’t ready for that so we changed out plans and came over to Gorham to hike Mt. Moriah. We headed up Carter-Moriah trail at 7:55am. This one starts out pretty steep, but it doesn’t last that long. We were at the summit of Mt. Surprise at 9:05am. The going is pretty good, yesterday it rained and overnight everything froze and so there is some ice with a little snow on top. Micro-spikes put on our micro spikes and they are working well so far. Although we are in the trees the wind is pretty strong and we can here it howling above us through the trees.
We reached the summit at 11:00 am, and left at 11:00 am. Dad took a quick picture and we retreated out of the direct wind as soon as possible. Even when we weren’t in the direct wind, Dad’s anemometer registered minus14deg wind chill! The last 200 meters to the summit was a very solid black ice, micro – spikes were good, but still I slipped twice and fell. Was not fun when I was so cold! We were back on Surprise at 1:00pm and the temperature at this elevation was 10 degrees. The ice is getting more solid and hard, spikes are slipping…
We got back to the parking lot at 1:55pm, the sun is shining and the temperature is 23 degrees. A lot different than it was on the summit of Moriah!
