Ascent Trip ReportEarly start ( 8:15ish) from Ammonoosuc Ravine parking area. Round trip 5:20. Up Ravine to lake Of the Clouds hut, a few minutes rest, 45 minutes or so up to the peak and back to the hut, Another few minutes rest and back down same way. First hike with the left knee brace and with hiking poles. The poles really helped and my knee feels good (relatively speaking) today.
Still some snow on the lake bank and sheltered areas along the ridge towards Mt Washington.
This completes my 28th 4k, and all of the southern Presidentials.
