I climbed the Lion's Head route to the summit and the Tuckerman's Ravine Route Down. Killed my head and knees from the flat, rocky trail because i kept thumping. Used some new trail-runners on the ascent and did some free climbing on some small boulders (9-15 ft?). A great climb both ways, except the beginning and end of both routes stinks.

Awesome climb! Went up with my wife and we had a blast together. Really felt the quads burning on the way down. We had a clear day with probably the best weather you could have for Mt. Washington. They don't call it the rock pile for nothing!

I attempted to drive my family up to the top while the summit was completely socked in. The rental car broke down on the way up. I had to decide whether to hike up or down. I figured we were closer to the top and started hiking the road. The visiblity was so bad that I didn't realize I was on top until I saw the summit building.

R2CreativesFirst Alpine Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2008

R2Creatives

I did the climb with my 11-year old daughter and guide Marc Chauvin from North Conway. We reached the summit at 1:20 pm Wednesday May 28th. The wind speed at the summit was 42 mph with gusts to 52 mph, the air temperature was 28 degrees and the sky was clear with 80 miles of visibility (we could see the curve of the earth to the east via the Atlantic ocean). We left the parking lot at the base (~2,000 feet) at 9:00 am and reached the summit (6,288 feet) at 1:20 pm. We left the summit at 2:15 pm and arrived back at the car at 5:15 pm. Our route was Tuckerman to Lion Head. There were still a few deep snow fields along the Lion Head trail. We had a wonderful adventure!

We climbed Washington on a fantastic crystal clear low wind day. the crowds were heavy because of the Memorial Day holiday but the climb was still an extremely rewarding experience. We could see the Atlantic Ocean from the summit!
Mt Wsahington was the 41st 6,000 + ft. peak on the east coast for my wife jennifer & I.

Took Tuckerman Trail to Lion's Head ~ beautiful day and no crowded trails. Lots of wind at the summit...and lots of bikers from Laconia who couldn't believe we WALKED up the mountain. Ha!

You gotta love this mountain and the White Mountains in general. I've climbed it three times, once as a camp counselor with six adolescents.

Tucks trail was packed w/ snow melt, same for Huntington.
Damnation ice bulges were baked, with running water.
Traversed Alpine Garden, more like a horizontal water bowl to Lions Head, which as usual, sucked. MAD toe-bang!

This was a great winter climb with my buddies Jud, David and Vinny. It was really warm, probably 40 degrees for most of the climb. Summit was about 20. Not a lot of visability but a great climb anyway. Definitely felt the burn. Went up with Craig from EMS in North Conway. Great guide.

Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2007
I went up from Pinkham Notch. It was blowing maybe 40-50 MPH with stronger gusts just down from the summit. Summit was anticlimactic as are many East coast roaded summits, but a cool fog rolled in from Mount Adams and engulfed everything. A memorable fall day in the Whites!

I've climbed this mountian many times. I don't go in the summer any more because it's just too damn busy. It's always at least 30 degrees colder than the valley. Last time I went it was 43 below 0, without the wind chill. Several years ago we got stuck in the bunker under the Lake of the Clouds for two days as we waited out an 80+ mile wind, sleet, rain and fog storm. It's designed for 6 people and we had 14, including a guy who was blown over and had a concussion. Great fun

Completed the Lion Head WR in pretty good conditions. Summit weather was 0 degrees with sustained 40+ winds and gusts of ~60, much nicer than we were anticipating but no complaints here.

With help of our excellent EMS guide, Conrad, we completed our three day beginning winter mountaineering course with a successful summit attempt. The weather was downright balmy for Mt. Washington -- 10-15 degrees F, 30-35 mph winds. The new snowfall that day made the ascent harder but did allow for some excellent glissading on the descent.
