(sorry for the late post)

Though the top feels like Disney world, it is a great climb. After a couple hours in the wild, up the difficult mountain, I knew I was near the top when I heard the ba-beep of a car being unlocked. I couldn't see any cars because I was under the ridge, so it was kinda freaky. Be prepared though. Some tough weather awaits you.

My fav route is via Huntington Ravine. Its fun to see the reaction of people in their warm, dry Caddie's as you cross the Auto Road on the way to the summit.

This mountain has been the grand challenge of many summer seasons. Trying to do it as a day trip from Boston is not easy, traffic stinks and the mountain is just plain big.



My only attempt to climb it as an overnight trip didn't work out for me, the story is here

I climbed Mount Washington with may father when I was a young boy. It was both his and my first "real" mountain, and marked the beginning of what would later become an obsession. At that time I don't think he or I realized just how quickly the weather can turn deadly on the mountain. Now I remind him of how much more dangerous "our climb" was as compaired to the summits that I bag now-a-days!

"Thanks dad!"

Was a great day on top. Very cool and windy with partial clouds, but still had great views of the surrounding country. The fall colors were outstanding. The hoar frost was several inches thick and there was a little snow around. I'm glad we got up because we are told they closed everything at top the next day.

Blynn and I climbed to the summit after a festive night at the Lakes of the Clouds Hut (reminiscent of summer camp but more challenging to get to). The weather was nothing short of incredible for Mt. Washington --clear skies, mid seventies and 20 to 40 mph winds. It was pretty disconcerting to see all of the tourist/weather stuff at the top. We descended to the Tuckerman Crossover and returned to the hut via the Bigelow Lawn. Descending on the talus was tough as I was pretty bruised from a fall I had on the "Ammi" the previous day.

Did a very nice early winter Presidential traverse, from Crawford Notch on rte 302 to Appalachia Parking Lot on Rte 2. Hiked up to Mitzpah Springs hut late Friday night, hauled ass all the way to Madison Hut Saturday, then down Valley Way trail to Appalachia on Sunday. Got to car before 11, only to find it broken into...but that's another story...

Now what? I've done the big one? I guess its time to learn some winter camping. A SPECTACULAR day for a climb. The views were FABULOUS. We could see for miles!

Did this twice, in the winter by the Lion's Head route and back to Hermit Lakes via the Boot Spur and Link and then in the Summer as I completed another section of the AT.

This was my first exposure to winter mountaineering. I went with a friend who taught me all the basics (self-arrest, crampon travel, etc.) The weather was nasty (50mph winds and windchill of -50F and poor visibility) near the top, but it was still a great feeling to stand on the summit.

My brother and I hiked in the rain until we reached the treeline. The views hiking up were Incredibly Foggy and at the top Foggy, 4pm Foggy, 5pm we saw about an ounce of blue sky.



At the top you watch people get off the COG and cars and that brings even more accomplishment within yourself.



Next time I am driving up so I can get that bumper sticker "My car climbed Mt. Washington."
