Moved to Rhodes Island a little over a year ago from Orlando, FL. Starting hiking last year. Recently got interested in mountain hiking. Hopefully I get around to doing a lot of that during the coming year.
Mount Lafayette. 5 minutes from summit had crampon issues on steep icy slope. Had to turn back. Mt Madison. Trekked in several feet of snow without snowshoes. Above treeline encountered a storm 30min into my push for the summit. Had to turn back. Mt.Lafayette, Mt. Lincoln, Little Haystack Mt. through Franconia Ridge loop.
To gain experience and confidence in climbing more technical routes up a mountain.
Yes. Enjoy winter hiking the best.
Can't say that I could answer that at the top of my head.
Till I gain more experience I will have to say no for now.
Nice meeting you yesterday.
