EastManLion's Head and Boott Spur  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2006

EastMan

Hiked up the TRT to Lion's Head, to the Summit (too many frikkin autos) and then down to Lakes to spend the night. Went swimming in the Lakes (frikkin cold), and then hiked down Boott Sput the next day.

Lots of people on the trail but the 60+ degree temperatures and sun made up for the crowds. Summit was a little disappointing (climbing for hours to reach a full parking lot), but on the whole definitely a great first climb.

climbhighnowstarted on Yale Gully ended in Damnation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2007

climbhighnow

climbed w/SP member Jerry L who has also posted some pictures, on the Yale Gully page. we climbed the first couple/few pitches of Yale Gully then climbed some mixed ground ending up in Damnation Gully w/about 100ft. to the top. Great climb!! I' actually recall the route pitch by pitch so here it goes:

P1: climbed the slab for 200ft.
P2: more ice to a snow/Ice anchor (~150ft.)
P3: we soloed a little AI2, then a little turf to a rock anchor (~125ft.) [picture posted]
P4: started w/ice then went to turf/trees ended above a little mixed ground (M3ish) (crack) with a #12 & #13 BD stopper jammed in (200ft.)
P5: we soled 4th class turf/snow (~200ft) [picture posted]
P6: (~85ft.) M3(+?) not my lead [I'll post a picture of this]
P7: 4th class rock/turf/snow. with one short traverse to the right, right above Damnation Gully (~125ft)
P8: (~175ft) 4th class snow/rock . with another short (but airy) traverse over Damnation Gully; brought us into the Gully proper (Damnation) then climbed about 100ft. to the top (in a white out)

we didn't slog to the summit

I don't think there could have been more perfect winter weather; crystal clear, -15, low wind.

Climbed this peak sometime in the 80s when I was a Boy Scout. I do remember it was long, but I had a good time.

First time attempting this peak. I was amazed at the sheer number of people headed up to Lions Head. We were literally in line behind 50 people. Besides that, it was awesome. We hit the summit around 3pm with sunny skies, low temperatures, and plenty of wind.

My first time in New England and loved every minute. We planned to climb Yale in Huntington but because of a late start and six climbers at the base of the ice (six!) we opted for Central and had a great snow and ice climb.

awesome place to celebrate america's birthday.....'cept I figure I shared the summit on a crystal clear day with about 250 other people most of whom either drove up or took the cog. But still remarkable

With the OSUMC group, climbed up the left snow gully in Tuckerman's and followed the cairns to the summit. Winds on the ridge 48mph gusting to 73mph. The gully was great fun - highly recommended!

chrisferroPinnacle Gully Solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 14, 2006

chrisferro

Hello all, I soloed Pinnacle Gully last Thursday in pretty thin conditions. I try to get up there and do it every year just to kick off the ice season, and since I usually go in December I'm used to thin, unbonded ice with running water - but this was pretty bad. The bottom pitch was no problem, but up higher there was a step where there was an open section of rock with water running and there was really no way around it. I had to get my axes in as high as I could in the ice, then work my feet up the rock until I had solid picks. Once I got all 4 points back onto good ice, the rest was no problem. The weather was in the mid-30's, maybe high 30's, and sunny until 2 or 3 in the afternoon. I didn't go to the summit because I just didn't feel like slogging up there over the rocks (not much snow on the mountain), so I went down the Lion's Head trail. All in all it was a great day on the mountain. Thanks to Chris the caretaker at the Harvard Cabin, and good luck to Mark, who's staying up at the cabin for a couple of weeks. I hope you get some good climbs in...

100+mph winds and -80 wind chills? That's what I came here for. ;) Lions head in Feb of 2006, unsuccessfull but warm and alive. I'm pretty sure the mountain is still there to be climbed again.

Easy climb up Tuckerman's Ravine, still some snow at the headwall. Disappointing summit. Spend hours climbing to get to a parking lot at the top and wait in line for a summit photo.
