Great morning in NH  Sucess!

A little more challenging than Tuckerman’s but just as fun.

Couple of times so far  Sucess!

Only time I haven't been over Lion Head on Washington is when I did a full Presidential Traverse.

2nd trip up the Lion Head.  Sucess!

Summited on the way up Washington. We were turned back from Washington Summit by time and weather but the view from the Lion Head was spectacular.

Descended this route  Sucess!

Went down this way after coming up Tuckerman's on my first climb of Washington. Didn't know this was considered a separate peak. Fun route down though, enjoyed it in good weather.

Summit ?  Sucess!

I didn't realize this was considered a summit ? I was there, a few times, but don't recall the dates.

Great route!  Sucess!

My favorite part was the steepest section. Ice axe and crampons a neccesity (in winter of course). this is also a neat area for a wooded glissade, like a winter playland!

Chillin'  Sucess!

Up via Boots Spur and down via Lion's Head. Lots of rime!

Great view of colorfull trees!  Sucess!

This was low enough to dodge the clouds, so the view was out of control!

Lion's Head  Sucess!

Climbed to Lion Head during an unsuccessful bid on Mt. Washington. Although the weather and my lack of stamina prevented me from getting to the top of Washington, getting this far was magnificent.

Consolation Prize  Sucess!

Couldn't make it to the top of Washington due to Hurricane f'ing Ike and 100+mph winds and no visibility, but hit Lion Head and came back down the Lion Head trail (went up via Tuck's).

Not Quite Washington  Sucess!

After climbing Cinema Gully on Mt. Willard, my partner and I approached Huntington Ravine and stayed in the Harvard cabin the next day (my first experience with a sled or a "cabin"). Waking up the next day, avy conditions thwarted my plans in Huntington Ravine. We made it up Lion Head, but turned aroud a few hundred feet short of the Mt. Washington summit in low visibility (10deg.F; 40mph wind; Wind Chill -15).

Lion Head but no Washington  Sucess!

I was successful on Lion's Head but leg cramps got me as I was getting close to Washington that day.

Lion Head!  Sucess!

Great views from Lion Head, but the winds really picked up and ran us off the ridgeline.
