sweetclimbRoute Climbed: Amoonosic Ravine Trail Date Climbed: June 19, 2005  Sucess!


Longest and tallest and steepest hike I've ever been on. Dampering to start because I have never seen the mountain until we reached the summit. Once we reached the top, it was amazingly beautiful! Couldn't have asked for nicer hike. Beautiful with clouds moving fast and then leaving the mountain completely. Fun and memorable day with my boyfriend, Britt, and sister, Kami.

Absolutely gorgeous day! Started off in the clouds with clearing once we reached the summit of Monroe. Then we were back in the clouds and the summit hung over top. After reaching the summit everything cleared out and we had awesome views everywhere. This was about as perfect a day you could ask for on this mountain. I summitted with my girlfriend Nicolle and her sister Kami for my second summit of this mountain.

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.

This was my first winter hike up a mountain and I loved it. We got a late start (9:00 AM), but still summitted.

doctorpeakbaggerRoute Climbed: Tuckerman's via AMC Lodge Date Climbed: September 25, 2004  Sucess!


(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.

My fav route is via Huntington Ravine. Its fun to see the reaction of people in their warm, dry Caddie's as you cross the Auto Road on the way to the summit.

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!"
