The longest stretch of alpine hiking in the east makes this a great hike. I love the White Mountains and the Presidential Range!!

Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2006


I feel bad for posting this really - but I have been to the top of Washington via the Auto Road. I was passing through NH on my way from Acadia NP back to home in California. I did use the mountain bike trails at the base while waiting for the road to open though. Wish I had known more about this awesome peak and New Hampshire is a really beautiful state. The bike race to the top sounds killer!

kaseriLion Head Winter Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 2007


Up Tucks to Lion Head Winter route. Wind was 50-60 mph with higer gusts. On our descent the wind picked me up and slammed me to the ground as I was rounding Lions Head. I had to self arrest in order to stop myself. Descended back to Pinkham without any other issues. Later that evening I found out that the higest wind gust for the day was over 100mph. That was most likely the gust that got me.

Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2007


We were just passing through the area and had no time for a hike. We drove up Auto Road and spent an hour checking out the views and snapping photos. What a spectacular day. Visibility was 75+ miles in all directions. Of course people were swarming everywhere. Very busy day. I can't wait to hit this summit on foot!

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2007


We climbed up Tuckerman Ravine Trail and descended Lion Head Trail. Visibility was great below about 5500 feet. Socked in good above that. We had a great time and stayed for two nights at Joe Dodge Lodge. Next trip I'm going to do Huntington Ravine!

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!
