Peak Name: Mt. Carrigain

Short description of rigging and pole system: Ten foot electrical conduit served as the pole. Two fisheye screws attached to pole with grommet-capture clasps attached to the fisheyes. We used C-clamps and bungee cords to lash the pole to the side of the tower.
Any improvements/changes for next year. Allowing Cannon, Washington and Wildcat D to have groups that want to participate but can’t manage the hike in. The Pemi Rim was well supported but Owl’s Head just screams of having something huge done. Grace won’t go back but for Flags’s, I will.
Keeping some of the easier summits for a youth group. How about a veteran hiker who can organize a trip for beginning hikers to climb something like Hale, Osceola, or Jackson and experience a summit for the first time.
