Ascent Trip Report

This would probably be a quick and easy hike, if one drives to the intersection from which started (even shorter if one drives further until the road ends). Having just come over Mount Washington the hard way, I found it a little challenging.

The terrain is easy - even after the road ends, it was easy to find a good path up to just below the summit of the 11,226' false summit north of Lincoln Peak. Towards the top of this peak, there was a bit of loose rock one had to cope with for the last 50 or so vertical feet. After that, it was an easy walk to the rocks on the north ridge of Lincoln Peak, and those made for good class 2-3 scrambling.
