maddie77777Made it to the ridge...
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2008


But that was as far as I could get. Came up Tucks into the remnants of Hurricane Ike, 60-80 mph winds gusting to 100, along with 30 degree rain blasting me. I made it to the Tuckerman crossover at the top of the ridge, but with the wind blowing at me from the side, it wasn't safe to ascend any further, having never been on this mountain before. I cannot wait to try it again though.

Second time up Mt. Washington. Started from the Madison Springs hut that morning and bagged Adams, Jefferson, and Clay that morning. Got "smogged" out by the Cog Railway as we approached the tracks....bad timing! Lovely views on the way up, but lots of wind, as usual. Took a quick break inside before making our way to Lakes of the Clouds Hut for the night.

Weather went from heavy clouds with 20' of visibility to unlimited visibility within about two minutes. Windy, of course, but gorgeous.

Climbed the 5.8 variation, a non-descript rock climb with the normal chossy, rotten, lose alpine rock. The hike in (Huntington trail) and hike out
(Lions Head) was painful. But, a majestic mountain for sure.

Hiked with Laura. Surreal feeling being whited out on top. Only peak I've climbed with a visitor center on the summit.

ChinigoHP #1 - drive up - #1a - climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


I had always wanted to go to the top, and after a weekend of partying I was in no shape to climb (I am glad those days are OVER!) - so I cheated and drove the Auto Road back on 28 Aug 1988. It may have been the most beautiful day of that year on top of the mountain - pretty warm as I recall, just a few clouds, and visibility as far as you could see.

I was thinking of tackling it as a climb in 2009, but Labor Day weekend this year looked so good for weather that I decided to do it sooner. Fortunately, I brought my cold weather gear! After the climb up Huntington Ravine, the wind was blowing fiercely across the Nelson Crag trail (>70 mph gusts) - the top was pretty much socked in by clouds - no visibility. But, it was a great climb and the descent down Tuckerman Ravine was pretty well sheltered after I got off the summit cone. Views were excellent once you got under the clouds!

Climbed with Isolation via the Davis Path from Lakes of the Clouds. Fantastic hike on a bright summer day. There were tons of crowds on the summit, of course, but we should be thankful it's all in one place. The views of the surrounding mountains were great as we could make out more than two dozen peaks over 4000'. My first peak over 6000' and my third state highpoint!

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


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.

Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2008


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!

Huntington Ravine (in summer) has been my favorite route.
