Home / SOLO, plus Hermit Lake shelters (Mt. Washington), December 2007 [16]

After taking my WFR at SOLO, I did a quick hike midway up Mt. Washington. Somehow, the Sherburne trail is always surprisingly difficult. Started at 2:30pm, shelter at 4:10, back at 5:00pm. Terrible technique due to a combination of factors: no light, XC ski poles only, heavy pack. Skinning works quite well up Tuckerman's Ravine trail to the hut.
