The road is closed in the colder months. I don't know the dates its closed but it was closed early Oct. last year when I was there. It snows year round there and in the winter its hard sometimes to even get snowmobiles up there.

There are stickers you can buy there that say "My car climbed Mt. Washington", pretty lame if you ask me.

If your car can't do it, I guess you have to climb it now! : )
I heard there is actually some good ice climbing there...doesn't matter how high the mountain is, if one decides to follow a hard route it is great training.



It's about 4000 feet from Pinkerton Notch to the summit. And there are a ton of ice climbs in the gullies.

If you just want info on winter routes in Huntington, and don't want to buy the entire book, this site is good, it even has a printer-friendly PDF version of the description:

Good luck!
