Hike Katahdin Mountain on June 18th and was blessed with ideal weather. Overcast on the way up so it was a bit cooler climbing then clearing for the descent. Left Roaring Brook Campground at 5:05AM, took Chimney Pond Trail to Cathedral Trail to Baxter Peak, then across the Knife Edge to Pamola Peak, then down Helon-Taylor Trail. Reached Baxter Cutoff at 9:30AM, Baxter Peak at 9:55AM, Pamola Peak at 11:10AM and the campground again at 2:05PM. I felt better after this hike than any other ascent of Katahdin I've done, no major problems the next day, although I don't think I could have climbed another mountain. 9.3 miles and about 3,700ft of elevation, 9 hours.

No pictures of the peaks because I did the high stuff solo and didn't think to take a camera with me.

Now I've only got three trails on the main part of the mountain I haven't climbed: Abol, Dudley, and Saddle. Abol is closed at present due to a rockslide wiping out the trail. I'm thinking next year I may do Dudley and if the weather is perfect combine it with Saddle. We'll see how I feel.
