Enjoy the spectacle, and challenge, of winter in the northern Presidential Range. We will make a serious attempt on Mt. Adams (5774') and Mt. Madison (5367'). Trip involves about ten miles along the ground and about a mile of up. Prior winter above-treeline experience required, including ability to self-arrest. Plan on an early start and a full day of fun on the mountain. Route depends on weather and condition of the group; if the weather is not for suitable going above treeline, leader will select an appropriate alternative hike in the area.
Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
