Two of the three times I have gone up Mt. Washington I've gone over this promontory.
Windy and freezing at the summit but otherwise weather was great
Hit this trail coming down from the peak. Very slippy, but good views.
The wind on the summit of Lion Head was probably in the 80-90 mph range, so I bailed on my Mt. Washington attempt. I literally could not walk forward in the incredibly strong and steady wind. The twelve people who started up before me that day all turned around.
ICE every where kick ass drove from colorado hiked to summit and rode left gully. i slid on ice for the first 100 feet out of control
The colors were great. The summit was socked in of course and was very windy and cold. Fun route.
Ascended via Tuckerman, decided to come down Lion Head thinking it might be a little easier. I didn't think it was. Of course, I was in 60-80 mph winds, but if I had to do it over again, I would absolutely have descended via Tucks again. I didn't really see a big difference b/w the two routes.
Still a nice hike, not too sure why they put stairs on one section.
I ascended this route to the summit and descended a different one. (Tuck's)
Third winter ascent of Washington on this route. Windy and -20 to -30F wind chill. Not the best conditions but not the worst I have ascended in.
Great hike with excellent views into the snowy ravine and out towards Rt. 16. Rather crowded at the top.
a great way down if conditions in tucks get sketchy.
Windy at first but overall a fine day, not much below freezing with a coating of firm fresh snow. Crampons were helpful but not strictly necessary - a few people bare-booted it, others used ice axes and actually roped up, you meet all kinds of people on this mountain.
I got the chance to meet "Monroe" on Lion's Head.
Outstanding vistas after trek up from Hermit Lake
