YIKES! Not a mountain I would want to be blown off of or spend a cold night on! He is very lucky to have survived! I wonder if it was near or on the knife edge? The news REPORT
Mt. Katahdin is a very beautiful mountain range in Baxter State Park, ME. I have only been there once and I am so anxious to return. It is a very long day hike and the entry into the park is strickly limited and controlled. As annoying as this is, it makes for a very unique experience where overcrowding is completely mininmized!
Mt. Katahdin boasts of very narrow, steep, completely exposed ridges including the aptly named "knife edge". And a deep fischer that you must climb down and again using hand-holds then climbs to a spire called the "chimney". It is the Northern most point of the Appalachian Mountain Trail and the highest mountain in Maine.
