Winter on Mt. Washington

Is climbing Mt. Washington in the winter doable for someone without too much experience? I've climbed Mt. Rainier guided, and am looking for inexpensive ways to transition to unguided mountaineering. From what I've read, attempting Mt. Washington during the winter looks like it would be a good learning experience for me, and doesn't seem suicidal.

Fall colors?

Does anyone know whether the aspens have started turning in the high country yet? I'm specifically interested in the Mineral King area, but any info would be helpful. As would photos! Such a pretty time of year.

Me and my dog bagging NHs 48 4ks

I only did a handful of hikes before this year, but was starting to like it, so I thought if my puppy was into it we'd try to bag all 48 together since that's a "NH thing to do". In July, my dog graduated from Puppy to Dog, and I had recovered from ankle surgery, so we took off. Cori just bagged her 10th yesterday (Owl's Head), so of course, I'm now petrified of how ...

Lone Pine entry

It seems to me that a few years ago, there was a forum entry on how to get to a place called "Lone Pine"... it's a small rock formation at the far eastern part of the Front Range, near Colorado Springs. It is on the same Ridge that Blodgett Peak is on, and is about 1 mile South of Blodgett. It sits above the large quarry to the west of Centennial and Vindicator, behind the ...

She began her journey on Mount Katahdin August 1st at 9:37am and finished today at 5:25pm for a total of 54d7h48m, taking 4 days and 2 hours ...

Mount Sill - Access South Slope from Palisade Glacier?

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone with experience in the area knows if there is a class 2-3 traverse from the Palisade Glacier side of Mt Sill over to the South Slope route, maybe via the ridge between Mt. Sill and Mt. Jepson?

I was hoping to hike in via the North or South Fork trail and summit Sill from the South Slope side. I've attempted the North Couloir before unsuccessfully due to my ...
