Mt Monadnock

Mike Pineault and Fred Knight
Up via Red Dot, Old Ski Trail, and White Dot. Breezy on top. Down via White Arrow—a great trail—with excursion to Monte Rosa—another fine out-and-back trail. Used microspikes except on the Monte Rosa, which was not broken out and taken to justify carrying our snowshoes. Monte Rosa had a great view of the summit and down. After the Half-way House we took Thoreau Trail to Lost Farm to Parker. See map.

Pics are here and are from my new Sony AEX-6. The battery only went down to ~65%, since I kept the camera off as much as possible. No problem with cold, but temperature was just under freezing.

Summary: ~6 miles, 5:20 total time.
