This trip, like the recent backpacking trip, was for a father and son team. Though the son on this particular team was much younger at only ten years old. On lead was Redline Guide Ken Hodges, and the objective for the day was Mt Washington. Now originally the “Rock Pile” was just an option, a plan B, as Ken had decided on ascending Boott Spur, but the duo really yearned for the summit of the Northeast so they ended up going up via the Lion Head Trail to maximize their chances.
As it turns out, they probably wouldn’t have had a problem regardless of the route. The kid, though just ten, was as tough as nails. The team faired really well and they got their summit. Ken was pretty stoked exclaiming that this was his youngest guest so far. He shared these photos of their day. Looks like it was gorgeous up there.
Great lead, Ken. Well done team, you guys did it! Thanks for choosing Redline Guiding.
