truelloTraverse? No. Lion's Head? Yes.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 26, 2011


Tried to do the traverse but got turned back after difficulties with route finding and snow (shouldn't have tried Webster Cliff trail...). Ended up summiting via Lion's Head. Beautiful day up to Alpine Garden followed by whiteout and high winds (75 mph gusts at -5F) for the rest.

chrisbrown92mph winds and -60 wind chills  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2010


After an unsuccessful attempt on 1/28/10, I felt compelled to go back and conquer the mountain during severe winter weather. Back in Jan. I had to turn back due to a friend that couldn't push on and zero visibility.

I returned Dec. 29th (this time solo) and was successful! As the title says, the weather was ridiculous. But it was EXACTLY what i came for!

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2010


8.5 hour roundtrip up the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, and down Jewell.

Having spent most of the hike complaining about the inevitable 400 pound man on top eating a chili dog, I found myself eating warm pizza and enjoying the amenities!

Took the Cog RR to the summit. Summit covered in rime ice. 24 degrees with a steady 36 mph wind.

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.
