Ascent Trip Report

Lots of blowdowns. 1st visit to Eliza Brook Shelter since it was rebuilt. Fantastic job!!!
Last peak of the entire Kinsman Ridge Traverse - a challenging 16.7 mile day! Left Cannon Tram @ 9:30am and reached R112 @ 6:45pm.
Also one more objective completed in my rather loose goal of traversing all the major White Mountain ridges "in a day." Still to go: Kilkenny Range, Montalban Ridge, and Baldface Royce Range. Completed: Franconia Ridge (4x including as part of 3 Pemi Loops), Presi Traverse (Saco Lake to Mt. Webster to Dolly Copp Campground), Carter Moriah Range (Gorham to Glen Ellis Falls), Sandwich Range (Mt. Tripyramid via Pine Bend Brook Trail to Chocorua and out Champney Falls Trail and bike back to Pine Bend TH), and Twin Range (4x as part of 3 Pemi Loops and 1 Pemi Loop attempt)
