Osceola – 4340′ East Osceola – 4156′
It was a chilly morning in the Whites today, I even heard reports of snow on the rockpile. No snow where we were, just visible breath. The higher elevations were in and out of the clouds, and very windy.
We made very good time for a group of 4 varying in ages. 2 Hours and 54 mins round trip.
Times to points:
Tripoli Rd to summit 1:11
at East Summit 1:38
back at main Summit 2:00
Back at Tripoli Rd 2:54
Typical trail conditions. Moderate grades.
Looking over to the East summit from primary summit
The east summit marked by a small Cairn
There is an interesting steep “chimney climb” section descending to the col between the two summits, it can be avoided, but scrambling up and down is much more fun than the Detour.
And ……Looking through the clouds at the most prominent thing on my Back Country Snowboarding To-Do List.
North Slide of Tripyramid
Next Hike: 4th of July
