pattyd82abFirst Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2010
I climbed with the Norwich University Mountain Cold Weather Company. My group did Lions Head. Great hike. It was warm enough to summit in T- shirts, until we started standing around at the summit.

jainman09Late Winter Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2011


My brother and I Grabbed a shelter at Tuckerman Ravine and hunkered down for the night. It was nice having three walls and practically a fourth made of snow. Next day started up Lion Head in low vis/heavy wind. Had to break out the ice axes on the steep trail! Thought about turning around when visibility broke at Lion Head. Weather got better all day. Lucked out with a rather warm sunny day on top. Still windy, but it always is. Glissaded all the way down to camp!

First day was a wet/windy trek up the Jewell trail to a nice camping spot about halfway. Summit day was gorgeous! Wife rode the Cog Railway down and left me to break camp on my own.

It was a gorgeous day. We were worried it was going to rain as it was sprinkling in the morning but it turned into the perfect day. We headed went up Lion's Head trail and came back down Boott Spur. It was an unforgettable experience.

rickfordWinter [like] Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2013


Solo-hike up via the Jewel Trail. There was still at least 2-3 feet of snow everywhere. Winds were in the mid 40's and the temps around 20 degrees at the summit. Windchill was 1 degree.

Could have never done it without snow-shoes.

Been doing the Whites since I was a kid. Was up there last weekend on a beautiful couple days perched up on the ridge over Great Gully, best winter weather I've ever had up there.

Jimmy RiversCrappy weather, as is Washington's MO, but made it through  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2012

State HP #13 for us, and we debated going up in the first place. The weather sucked, and it was increasingly foggy, and cool, drizzly the whole day. Oh well, we made it up Tuckerman's, with near white out fog, and yes, heavy winds towards the summit.

SirburtmundFirst mountain climbed and summited


First climb ever. Definitely underestimated the weather, conditioning and will needed. Favorite quote by my marathon running climbing buddy about a quarter way up -- "marathons are for sissys!"
