A little more challenging than Tuckerman’s but just as fun.
Only time I haven't been over Lion Head on Washington is when I did a full Presidential Traverse.
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.
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.
First hike in the Whites, summited washington and came down tuckermans
prefer others, but not too bad
I didn't realize this was considered a summit ? I was there, a few times, but don't recall the dates.
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!
Up via Boots Spur and down via Lion's Head. Lots of rime!
This was low enough to dodge the clouds, so the view was out of control!
Did it on my way up Washington.
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.
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).
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).
I was successful on Lion's Head but leg cramps got me as I was getting close to Washington that day.

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