Day hike too Mt. Monadnock should i bring the sled?

Post  sledxteam on Thu Jan 29, 2009 7:05 pm

This is my second winter hike on Monadnock. But i dont rember what it was like. So i am debating if i should bring the sled. And plus im the only kid out of all the hikers so i reallly have ti jepp the pace up. So im not sure yet and where i would sled. So im truly not sure. Give me ideas and tell me if you have hiked the mountain if its worth it.
But of course its always up to what my dad alllows me to bring it up.

Never been there. But you can just strap the sled around your chest or make a pulk or put a string through the front bolts.

how much snow is there because it looks really rocky and if there isn't enough snow you might break your sled. but if there is enough it looks like it be a sick trail.

Ohh haha sorry forget to respond
Um and sadly no i decided not too becuase i truly wasnt sure what lied ahead of me and i didnt want to lug the sled up since i had to keep a fast pace.
But next time i know there was some good little areas not sure if it was worth it.
The summit was -20 tho with windchill always fun with 4 point crampons so u cant dig into the ice and ur falling and sliding on the rocky/icy summit.
Got vidoe atop the mountain some decent veiws good see mt wachusset.
