RyanTaro76Signature Windy and Rainy  Sucess!
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

CLIMBED AFTER MT MANSFIELD IN THE AM. WAS GOING TO DO NEXT DAY, BUT A GLIMPSE OF THE SUMMIT CHANGED MY PLANS AND I SOLOED UP THE AMMONOOSUK RAVINE WHICH WAS FULL OF SNOW MELT AND RETURNED BY THE JEWEL TRAIL. ABOUT A FOOT OF ICED OVER SNOW FROM LAKE OF THE CLOUDS UP WITH NASTY SNOWMELT TRAPPED UNDERNEATH FOR FOOT REFRESHMENT

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.

MattGreeneDid the Impossible  Sucess!
I began a climb up Adams at 2:00am, and traversed over to Washington. Taking my time, I hit it right at sunrise, and had the top of the mountain to myself on a beautiful summer weekend.

Mount Washington caught me a little off guard. I was in the middle of a section hike on the AT. I separated my shoulder on the way up from Crawford Notch on a wet rock in a flat spot - oww! Then, in a thunderstorm above treeline, I took a tumble and banged my knee on a rock and cut my hand on another. Then, freezing from the rain, we stumbled into Lakes Hut, only to find 13 thru-hikers staying the night - it turned into a big party.

The next morning, we stumbled up to the top, spent too much time in the snack bar at the observatory, and then stumbled down to Madison Springs Hut, only to find a party there, too, and stay the night.

I can't wait to get back to the whites, although I don't expect to stumble into the parties again.

Climbed half a dozen times or so. A great hike in winter. Pretty much a highway in summer.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007

Second climb ever for me. I took along a younger buddy and his girlfriend who initially thought this would be just like a hike in the woods of upper Michigan. Wrong....
Although they were unprepared we still managed to pool our resources together to ensure everyone of us was warm enough. The weather did fight back though. With having little sleep from an overnight drive, 70MPH winds, complete pea soup fog, and the never ending sound of a baby screaming (from another hiker carrying a baby on her back), the Gods of Mt Washington attempted to kill our spirits, from the top of the Tuckerman Ravine to the summit. This long stretch was our Hell.
But, six hours after we started, we reached the summit and ate New England Clam Chowder. Best soup I've ever had.

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

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!

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.

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!
