Did this twice, in the winter by the Lion's Head route and back to Hermit Lakes via the Boot Spur and Link and then in the Summer as I completed another section of the AT.

This was my first exposure to winter mountaineering. I went with a friend who taught me all the basics (self-arrest, crampon travel, etc.) The weather was nasty (50mph winds and windchill of -50F and poor visibility) near the top, but it was still a great feeling to stand on the summit.

My brother and I hiked in the rain until we reached the treeline. The views hiking up were Incredibly Foggy and at the top Foggy, 4pm Foggy, 5pm we saw about an ounce of blue sky.



At the top you watch people get off the COG and cars and that brings even more accomplishment within yourself.



Next time I am driving up so I can get that bumper sticker "My car climbed Mt. Washington."

We were lucky with the weather this time. The photo is actually from two years ago.

Over two days, staying at Lake of the Clouds hut, very rocky, steep, strenous, and exposed route, exceptional hike...

Was planning on hiking 6 Husbands then Jefferson to Clay to Washington, but a steady downpour prevented that. My brother and I headed up the Great Gulf River, er, Trail from the Bluff.



The first section was either muddy or was an actual brook, and every time we'd brush up against a tree you'd get soaked. Once we got to the treeline however this became a fun hike. The boulders were more challenging than probably normal because of the rain. Visibility was about zero, but it was quite a surreal experience to hear the cog train, then see it at the last second as it "flys" by.



Enjoy the meal at the summit. If you're hiking with my brother, make sure you get a bite of his whoopie cookie before he devours it in two huge bites.

Really only two good pitches of easy ice in a nice large fold of rock. Next time I'd take Damnation Gully at the same grade, but longer and in the sun. descended the Lionhead winter. weather was rather cold but sun and no wind.

Took my muthah and sistah up the Auto Road in the cah. The Muthah and the Sistah would not get out of the cah to hike up the last 100 ft to the summit, I took the liberty to get out of the cah and stand on the summit.

Tuckerman's was closed. We made it up Lions Head, but conditions were bad towards the top, and so was visibility, so we had to find our own way, straight up the rocks, with 75 MPH winds, and -4 degrees windchill.

They told us to go right to the shelter in the summit area, but I summited anyway.

This is a long climb for only being just over 6000' high! Spectacular scenery.

I've climbed this peak probably a dozen times at this point starting out as a sprout. Always spectacular, sometimes spectacularly bad.

Magnificent day for a climb. Summit Conditions at 6:00 AM: 11 degrees, 40 mph winds, 110 miles visibility. Winds were non-existent early, even above tree line and around Lion Head. Not until above alpine gardens did winds pick up.

Bagged this peak many times via Jewell, Boott Spur, and as part of a traverse up the Jefferson's Caps Ridge, over Clay, Washington, Monroe, and down the Ammonusic Ravine. The worst part about that one is walking back up the road to the Caps trailhead. The most fun was on February 12, 1997, up and down Tuckerman's. Air temp in Pinkham notch was about 15F and the winds were pretty calm. Snow conditions were excellent for hiking, no snowshoes needed on the lower part of the mountain, thin crunchy rime and hoar up on the summit dome (no crampons needed). Fun!

This was my first trip to the White Mountains and definately won't be my last. I took the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail to the Lake of Clouds hut and then climbed Mount Monroe as well. Then I took the Crawford Path to the summit. The views were more than undescribable. It was a wonderful day for a hike and we had some fun on the scrambling sections. The winds were about 35mph avg. The temp. hung around 45 the entire day and it was beautiful. We descended via the Gulfside/Jewell Trail to see the Great Gulf and it was beautiful. I'll definately be making the trip again and I'd like to do the Northern peaks as well because we had bad weather the rest of our stay. It is a wonderful trip and the views are amazing.
