Details: We’re going to hike The Baldfaces (3,570 & 3,610ft), two dramatic rocky peaks on the east side of the White Mountains. Views from these peaks are among the finest in the White Mountains. This very challenging winter hike involves nearly 4 miles of above treeline travel and will require the use of crampons with front points (along with mountaineering snowshoes and microspikes). If you sign up for this event, you agree to bring the proper gear to the trailhead with you, NO EXCEPTIONS. 52WAV
