KoonsyRoute: Tuckermans to Lions head


Wet day. Tucks trail was a nice easy start before the transition to Lions Head where the hike got steep and to much fun. As we got passed the alpine garden we went up a snow field and lost track of the trail and were forced to turn back. Upon finding another way up, my partner refused to push on. great views of Tuckermans ravine. Great Mountain.Can't wait to go back and give it another shot.

Stayed the night before at the Joe Dodge Lodge. Went up via Tuckerman's Ravine/Lion's Head. One heck of a rockpile!

Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2006


Climbed with the OSU mountaineering club. Made it to Lion's Head. The wind was so strong past there that the leaders were blown over while scouting it. Really wet my appitite for some more peaks. Wasn't technical but got some experience with Ice axe and crampons. The river at the bottom of the trail was beautiful.

cheers to those ambitious appalachian hikers and there history of not wasting any time getting up the mountain by using those silly switchbacks. straight to the top, baby! switchbacks do have their place...just not so much in the applachians. beautiful weather turning to downpour back to beautiful in a matter of seconds. crazy place, that Mount Washington.

Tom worked me on my introduction to the Presidentials, but the calm, warm, sunny day may have given me a distorted perception of this beautiful area.

Very icy in sections up to tree line. I had to turn back at the Upper Lion's Head with one of our guides and another team member. I did not have the stamina to complete the climb, although I had worked hard to prepare. I handled the weather much better than I would have expected and truly enjoyed the experience dispite needing to turn back.

Summited in under 2.5 hours, went up the right gully of the ravine. The sky was completely clear and weather was amazing. We descended the Boot Spur trail to make a great climb.

Bear Claw

Alpine start with Summit Fox joining us in the Pinkham Notch parking lot. He took off before us and left us a trail of prints up to the summit. Snow was knee to thigh deep in areas as we broke trail to summit. On top was -2 (approx) w/26mph winds. Another phenomenal day on Mt W in the winter.

jaygeekrayFinally Made It !!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2002


A couple previous trips up to the White Mtns were cancelled. We finally got a 4 day window in the schedule and drove up from Western PA.

Got a late start (9:30-10ish) due to morning drizzle. My 12 and 14 year old sons both made it up Ammonoosuc trail to the top, but only the 14 year old was up to tackling Tuckerman Ravine trail back down. Younger son went back down in the Van with Mom and little sis (one advantage of the road to the top-well that and the chili in the cafeteria).
Long day, but well worth it !!!
