tigerlillyMy, it's cold up there!  Sucess!


Ok. Hands down. Coldest I've ever been. Winds were 70mph. Went up Lions Head Trail. The next winter it took 3 days to summit (going through the Great Gulf). The snow was seriously deep. This was the hardest thing I've ever done to date. It was exhausting. (Like climbing a sand dune in snowshoes!) We climbed it maybe 5-6 times more in the winter and summitted 2-3 times. Went up one year and turned around due to whiteout & whipping winds. Great Great fun!

Although the visability was 25' on the Summit it was still a fantastic climb, and a huge adventure. Just what the doctor ordered. Stayed at Hermit Lake 2 nights. Summitted Mt. Monroe via Boott Spur on day 2. Conditions nearly identical. Low visability, wind chill around 15 or so. Sleet,rain and snow.Summer in the Whites.

Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2007


Cold clear sunny day and low risk of avalanches. Nice firm snow enabled us to kick steps. Watched a group of riders and skiers come down around us but otherwise it was a quiet day in Tux. Summited Washington in strong wind, still clear sunny skies - a gift!

mountainloverCORoute Climbed: Huntington Ravine, Descent: Lion's Head Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2007


My first ascent up Washington, and wow was it a beauty! Had great weather, blue skies, and wonderful views around us. The scrambling up Huntington was a blast. Enjoyed a brief lunch at the summit house, and then made our way down the Lion's Head Trail, arriving at the trailhead 7 hours after our start. I can't say enough about this area...the views of the ravines were stunning!

dirthPresidential Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2007


Crossed over the summit as part of a South to North Presidential Traverse. Stopped inside to eat our lunch. Very windy (80 mph gusts) and chilly (40's). The summit was in the clouds most of the day so no views while we were on it. Only views were looking back at the summit from Adams later.

Unsuccessful attempt of south gully. Hiked up in the rain and once we hit the base of huntington the fog rolled in way too thick. Be back once the snow starts to fall thats for sure.

A nice climb, but the visitor center at the summit is an unfortunate reality.

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.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2005


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


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
