Very bad weather on the way up but clear at the top. We had an excellent view of a rainbow stretching over Mt. Adams. An excellent finish to our annual trip to New England!

km_donovanRoute Climbed: The Right Gully Date Climbed: March 15, 2003  Sucess!


I was racing against a storm up the Right Gully. The top of it was filled with ice which made for some dicey climbing. The summit was covered in an ice fog. Since the storm hit, I went out the Lions Head. I got to experience some of Mount Washington’s ferocity first had. I saw one climber get blown off of his feet on the way out, fortunately he was not injured. I wound up being covered head to toe in ice but dry as a bone beneath my GORE-TEX.

(sorry for the late post)

Though the top feels like Disney world, it is a great climb. After a couple hours in the wild, up the difficult mountain, I knew I was near the top when I heard the ba-beep of a car being unlocked. I couldn't see any cars because I was under the ridge, so it was kinda freaky. Be prepared though. Some tough weather awaits you.

This mountain has been the grand challenge of many summer seasons. Trying to do it as a day trip from Boston is not easy, traffic stinks and the mountain is just plain big.

My only attempt to climb it as an overnight trip didn't work out for me, the story is here

sierratrekkinRoute Climbed: From Pinkham Notch Date Climbed: Approx. 1978  Sucess!


I climbed Mount Washington with may father when I was a young boy. It was both his and my first "real" mountain, and marked the beginning of what would later become an obsession. At that time I don't think he or I realized just how quickly the weather can turn deadly on the mountain. Now I remind him of how much more dangerous "our climb" was as compaired to the summits that I bag now-a-days!

"Thanks dad!"

Was a great day on top. Very cool and windy with partial clouds, but still had great views of the surrounding country. The fall colors were outstanding. The hoar frost was several inches thick and there was a little snow around. I'm glad we got up because we are told they closed everything at top the next day.

indianabobRoute Climbed: Ammonoosuc Ravine/Crawford Path Date Climbed: June 17, 2003  Sucess!


Blynn and I climbed to the summit after a festive night at the Lakes of the Clouds Hut (reminiscent of summer camp but more challenging to get to). The weather was nothing short of incredible for Mt. Washington --clear skies, mid seventies and 20 to 40 mph winds. It was pretty disconcerting to see all of the tourist/weather stuff at the top. We descended to the Tuckerman Crossover and returned to the hut via the Bigelow Lawn. Descending on the talus was tough as I was pretty bruised from a fall I had on the "Ammi" the previous day.

AlexeyDRoute Climbed: Presidential Traverse Date Climbed: 28 November, 2004


Did a very nice early winter Presidential traverse, from Crawford Notch on rte 302 to Appalachia Parking Lot on Rte 2. Hiked up to Mitzpah Springs hut late Friday night, hauled ass all the way to Madison Hut Saturday, then down Valley Way trail to Appalachia on Sunday. Got to car before 11, only to find it broken into...but that's another story...

Now what? I've done the big one? I guess its time to learn some winter camping. A SPECTACULAR day for a climb. The views were FABULOUS. We could see for miles!
