East side of White Mountains

Postby Wandering Daisy » Tue Mar 23, 2010 8:57 pm

Is anyone interested in some exploring on the east side (from Dryer) of the White Mountains in early June? I have done three trips previously and with the higher snow this year, this is a good year to again do the White Mountains. I am planning on a 5-day trip going up the North Fork of Perry Aiken to Perry Aiken Flat, then over to White Mountain and down the South Fork of Perry Aiken. I have accessed Perry Aiken Flat from the north a few years back. This route would be off-trail and quite rough. I do not travel fast, just slow and steady. I plan on about 5-7 miles per day with about 2,000 - 3,000 feet gain per day. There is a LOT of elevation gain on this route and a Class-3 rocky traverse. With the high winds, I have previously had best luck with a bivy sack. Depending on condtions, snowshoes may be needed (although prefer not to).

A problem I now have, is that I have a grandchild due in late June and will be doing "granny duty" for a few weeks, but do not know when. Thus, the timing of the trip would be up in the air until the last minute. I am looking at last week in May or first week in June for the trip. My daughter tends to deliver her babies early, so I may have to dealy the trip until later. I have done previous trips solo, but felt a bit on the edge soloing in the White Mountains, so would prefer to have company this time.

If you are interested, send me a personal message give me your e-mail and I will send you the detailed trip plan.
