Bkoziol3Huntington is the Way to GO  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2011


Definitely the desired path to the top if you're looking for some easy climbing and not just a steep hike. Tuckermans was just that, a steep hike. I descended this way. Hammered out Huntington in 3 hours 20 mins flat. Great Class 4 moves along the way. No extreme exposure, just steep rock that required hand holds and some upper body strength to ascend. Would love to try a variation of this route next time. Definitely do not feel intimidated if you're comfortable with your ability to pull yourself up over rock, I felt like I was being talked out of the route by some people. I appreciated their concern, but when it comes hikes/climbs like this, I feel you should weigh your options, get a variety of opinions, and have some self knowledge of your own abilities! Wet weather would have turned me away, it is steep, but a lot of fun!

Didn't even realize it was Huntingtons until after..... I always heard it was SOOO hard, I thought it was great technical climbing!

Glad it was a nice sunny day for this one. Little sketchy at times, especially for my short self. But a good time. Up this, down Lions head.

Loads of fun. found the ledges above the slab to be the most sketchy, but nothing terrible. First time on Washington and glad we did it right. Perfect day, near 60 with little to no wind and clear skies.

It was fine at the base, but as we approached and climbed the Fan you could feel the cold wind coming down from above! We hit the clouds and put on all our gear!

Had a great time after he clouds lifted and the rock dried... far better than just slogging up the peak... a great little challenge. Loved it!

This hike/scramble spoiled me. Where are others like it in the Catskills, Adirondacks, Poconos, Gunks, Smokies, or Blue Mountains?

mlandau3A Great Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2007


This is a really cunning trail. It was a nice, dry day; the trail was definitely steep, but the exposure wasn't all that bad. And there was even a place to proceed "au cheval".

Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2007


We were going rain or shine and since it was shine we did this little route that is thoroughly fun! The last maybe 300 to 500 feet to the top of the ravine are the most fun with some slabs and steps. The exposure is pleasant. It's a long way down but it's not vertical so it's not too scary. Best standard route on the mountain!

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


After the usual New England bushwack through the forest, we finally reached the start of the slabs in the ravine. We had a great time putting out rock climbing skills to use in this area, and enjoyed minimal crowds during our ascent (most people were headed up Tuckerman's). The entire climb up was such a blast, and I'm glad to have experienced Washington on such a beautiful day using this fun, scrambling route. I felt very proud after having completed all of the class 3 slabs!

But its not always sunny. I've also been on Boot Spur, Lions Head (Winter and summer) for summit days. Nice route not many loose rocks. The mountain is better on a nice day in the winter less people who shouldn't be there and there are some interesting ice patches to climb up and down.

Climbed this route many times. Best non technical ascent of this peak at least you get to scramble!
