Ascent Trip Report

John Lane, Robin, Dan, Arnnette and I hiked at Moosilauke w/ Glencliff Trail. I proposed to stop by South Peak on the way down. John, Robin and I did it to cover South Peak, too.
It was nice weather and I could see nice views during hike, however, when we reached to the summit exposed area (about 0.8 miles from the last trail junction), we started to see fog and it's getting whiteout. It was extremely windy (45-55 mph) and I was blown out many times to the edge of the trail.
