Registration

Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

Come along for a winter ascent of two southern Presidentials, Monroe (5,372 ft) and Eisenhower (4,760 ft), and an 11.8 mile, 3,554 foot elevation gain day (final route will be determined by weather and trail conditions). Joined by a spectacular (in good weather) but exposed above-treeline ridgeline, these peaks are suited to experienced winter hikers. Participants should have previous above-treeline experience, and come prepared with full above-treeline gear, including rigid double plastic or hybrid mountaineering boots, crampons, and ice axe. If it's not an above-treeline-on-the-Presis day, we will reroute this trip to alternate peaks.
