After a change in plans to spend time with good friends, I got a late start and chose to stay semi-local. A beautiful day doing an out and back from North Pack to Pack Monadnock. A really nice trip on the Wapack trail. The north face of each mountain had decent amount of ice flows requiring solid traction. I used Hillsound Trail Pros which worked perfectly.
My phone died on the summit of Pack Monadnock. I couldn’t get it stay on for about an hour so photos on the return are minimal, which was worked out to beat the sun.
There were a few folks on the trail and met a nice woman at the summit of North Pack on return trip. She had some minor traction, Stabilicers, but they weren’t enough. I offered and stayed with her for the trip down to ensure she made it safely.
As usual it was a great ~8 mile day on small summits.
