This one was an adventure and a half. Weather was perfect... beautiful morning. Only problem that presented was it made for a perfect day for the black flies to come out in a swarming feeding frenzy. So along with this hike/climb being a true physical test, I had to constantly be swatting around like a mad man. Not that it helped much... still got eaten, but I tried. Insects out in parts of NH like that really don't care what repellent you have on. I did spray myself, but those little buggers laughed it off and dined on me all day anyway.
That aside, it was a great hike and climb... tons of rock scrambling all the way up with phenomenal views as soon as half way up. Took a couple hours each way on the steep white dot trail... great hike.
