Comments: Starter later than I thought and was going to only go Mount Monroe snd and hang out the Lakes of Cloud hut and go back on the Ammonoosuc, but when I got to the Lakes of Cloud hut the weather was so perfect and the conditions warranted my summit fever that I had to go to the Mount Washington Summit. Super clear blue skies and snow conditions. Awesome! I had used snowshoes up and switched to Hillsounds trail crampons to the Summit and after leaving I switched to Hillsound trail crampon pros for the descent. The Jacobs ladder section requires extra caution because of falling consequences. Once safely throughout was making great time. Unbelievably awesome day snd so happy I made the summit decision. Enjoyed all of trail conversations and info from the friendly hikers I met along the way.
