Great trip report. I agree that in some ways winter peaking is easier. Trails are a bit flatter when snow fills in nicely around all of the boulders. Great photos. A few quick questions:

I would have done same! Even if you can cross it in the morning, with a full afternoon of snow-melt the same brook would have been even more challenging in the afternoon. We are working on our 46 and...

Certainly do not wish to hijack. Looks like they are close to 8 travelers as it stands (never heard of AWE so just signed up - thanks). Sites on Putnam may be close enough to parking lot to lure some...
