campthesummitBeautiful winter ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2010


This was one of those super unusually beautiful days on Mount Washington. there was not a single cloud in the sky and probably 100 plus mile visibility. we followed the lions head winter route and there were many teams on the mountain. all in all a great experience. next year were shooting for the Huntington ravine side, maybe pinnacle gully.

secanderWinter Ascent via Odell's  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 6, 2010


Poor ice conditions led to the melting out of a screw. Weather was beautiful and the rest of the ascent was uneventful.

Terrible weather indeed!

Summited in total whiteout conditions, with winds gusting up to 100mph. Worth it, though.

rasgoatFinally!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 30, 2010


Climbed this baby in winter, for me the only time to go for Washington. First because of the lack of tourists with motor vehicles and second for the ability to walk on the snow instead of the trillion boulders and rocks one has to walk on in the summer.

When we summited, the official temperature was -7 (F) with 23 MPH winds making the wind chill a balmy -30. The only factor that allowed us to summit in these conditions was the generous amount of sunshine combined with our winter hiking experience and proper collection and use of gear.

We took the Lions Head Winter route and it was gorgeous! We had the summit to ourselves.

I truly did not think I could endure such conditions but we did it! and enjoyed it the entire time.

mtncorgup Tuckermann and around the Great Gulf  Sucess!


Big block of a mountain, but hazy views when I was atop. Rocky trails will take their toll at day's end too! ;-]

Drove to the top with my girlfriend via the auto road. Had plans/hut reservations to snow climb via Tuckerman Ravine (IIRC) the following Jan, but the weather was 50F that weekend and we bailed. Moved to CA the following summer and haven't had a chance to go back yet...

Definitely underestimated the Great Gulf Trail. Began around 9am and didn't summit until late afternoon. We hitchhiked down the mountain rather than climbing down in darkness! Weather was great, low 50s.

dancla22Windy Day


First but not last time up Washington was most likely the best time Ill have, once reaching the top there were wind gusts close to 100 giving the opportunity to lean back in to the wind and having it hold you up at a 30 degree angle.
