Comments
Comments: Really nice loop to revisit. I was glad I had mini-spikes (1/4" spikes) near the summits. Really helpful near Middle Sister. Unfortunately the new radio repeater station on Middle Sister was really out of place on that summit - looks like space ship. When I didn't have spikes on, I slipped near the summit of Chocorua and took a header. Coming off Chocorua, I had real difficulty descending the Bee Line Trail - VERY slippery - I crawled down the iced slabs on all fours - very scary. Once back off the summits, really fast and fun. SUPER windy on the summits and not as crowded as expected. EXCELLENT views!!!!
