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.

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.

MRoyer4Many facets of Mt. Washington  Sucess!


I've climbed Washington many ways, starting as an 8 year old via the Great Gulf, via the Presidential Traverse, via the Lion's Head Winter Route, via Pinnacle Gully Ice, etc. It's like a home away from home in the Northeast...there's certainly something for everyone.

secanderSummer via Lion's Head  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2009


Great weather other than the almost perennial clouds covering the summit. There was relatively little traffic on the trail but the cars, roads, and buildings at the summit made it somewhat disappointing. We got a late start so much of the hike down was in the dark. Anyways, I'm looking forward to giving it another go this winter.
