Ascent Trip Report

The day I'd been planning to head to the Whites turned out very windy, so I stayed closer to home and did the Pawtuckaway loop. Parked at the Tower Road gate, where there was space for 2-3 cars (no other spaces plowed at this time of the winter). Started in microspikes, but quickly switched to snowshoes. Summited South Mtn and climbed the tower, but didn't stay long due to the strong wind. Descended towards Round Pond, and got a bit disoriented as usual in the boulder field / Round Pond / beaver pond area due to the multiple poorly marked trails in the area. Had to go around the steep ledge on the North Mtn trail shortly below the cave due to soft snow conditions.
