My first real climb, up Lion's Head. Cold and windy (unsurprisingly) but clear.

lambpastyIncredible, windy hike
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2010


Attempted a loop starting at Pinkham Notch via Old Jackson Road > Nelson Crag Trail > Davis Path > Boott Spurr > Tuckerman's Ravine. Made it up to the intersection of Nelson Crag Trail and Alpine Garden (about .8 mi from the summit) and had to turn down the A.G. Trail and circumvent the peak because of the -5 degree temp and the 90mph wind blowing the rime around everywhere - just didn't quite have the gear for it. Still an awesome hike nonetheless with incredible views, definitely doing this trail in the spring/summertime next year.

LDuszersolo to the top  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2010


I was on a multi-day trip across the Presidentials in a group with 3 guys. The guys decided to circumvent the summit and went southwest towards Lakes of the Clouds. I soloed to the top. It was misty and windy on the way up, but then the clouds cleared completely, and there were views in every direction for 100 miles.

WhiteInVermontHiked this a few times  Sucess!


Tuckerman's to Lion's Head trail: In the summer I did this hike in 2 hours 15 minutes up and 1 hour 33 minutes down. I've snowboarded The Ravine in the spring. It was a beautiful warm day not a cloud in the sky!

lambpastyUnderestimated this one  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2009


But still had an incredible time. Parked one car at Pinkham then a second up the road a few miles at the Great Gulf trailhead. 7.5 miles up to Spaulding lake just below the steep, rocky, wet headwall, then up the headwall itself to enjoy 2,000 calories and a nice 20 minute nap at the cafeteria :D

The summit itself was cloudy, but as we headed down they completely cleared and hiking back down the Lion's Head trail during the sunset was one of the most memorable experiences I've had on a hike so far. This is a ~12 mile round trip that took us close to 13 hours (book time for this is about 10 hours I believe...the only peak we'd hiked before this was Mt. Monadnock; we were underprepared, inexperienced, and underestimated the difficulty here!), but the views of the Presidential valley while on the headwall made it well worth it. Definitely going to do this trail again.

YEMThe Easy Route  Sucess!


My wife and a few NE friends rambled around the summit and below. Views and wind, what else could you ask for in summer? Bring a pocket full of $.

cddinsemassBarefoot  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2010
Awful weather, lots of rain, cold and windy....but my 15 year old son climbed from Pinkham Notch on the Tuckerman Ravine trail to the summit BAREFOOT! Everyone we met was surprised but other than being cold, he said his feet felt fine. He was the only one of our group at the summit to have dry shoes as he had to put them on to go in and eat.

Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2010


W/ Christine. Why not do a double if weather permits? Up Huntington Ravine, down Jewell, up Ammonoosuc, down Lion Head. R/T time = 11 hours including 1 total hour at the busy (and crowded) summit and 15 minutes at the base of the cog railway to watch a wedding party board and depart for the summit.

jcoalterUp Huntington Ravine, down Lion's Head  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2010


First real mountain, first time above tree line. Planned on doing another peak or so a day or two later but this was enough for one week for me, as a newbie hiker. We'll just have to go back, that's all. Great views, some unheard of awesome weather (6 mph winds on top, bright sun all day) some tough scrambles and a long, tiring, fabulous day.
