Kinsman Ridge: Cannon (=Fail) & North Kinsman

We took a shot at Cannon from the Kinsman Ridge Trail, but were unable to ascend the ice falls near the top - and had to turn back. Should've brought an axe, rope and an elevator. After climbing to within a few hundred feet of the summit, descended all the way to Lonesome Lake and ascended North Kinsman. Temps in the low single digits or below zero made sections of the woods like a walk-in freezer. The summit was sunny but very cold. 10 miles and 4300ft of elevation gain and cold temps were tiring. Am taking a slow day today, as is the pup. Pics are here.
