Loved those cairns  Sucess!

Went up during Appalachian Trail hike. Complete whiteout blizzard in the middle of the summer. The rock cairns were the only way we could find our way.

Many climbs at all different times of the year, via all of the standard routes. Favorite ascent is up Huntington Ravine.

Traverse? No. Lion's Head? Yes.  Sucess!

Tried to do the traverse but got turned back after difficulties with route finding and snow (shouldn't have tried Webster Cliff trail...). Ended up summiting via Lion's Head. Beautiful day up to Alpine Garden followed by whiteout and high winds (75 mph gusts at -5F) for the rest.

92mph winds and -60 wind chills  Sucess!

After an unsuccessful attempt on 1/28/10, I felt compelled to go back and conquer the mountain during severe winter weather. Back in Jan. I had to turn back due to a friend that couldn't push on and zero visibility.

I returned Dec. 29th (this time solo) and was successful! As the title says, the weather was ridiculous. But it was EXACTLY what i came for!

Perfect Day  Sucess!

8.5 hour roundtrip up the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, and down Jewell.

Having spent most of the hike complaining about the inevitable 400 pound man on top eating a chili dog, I found myself eating warm pizza and enjoying the amenities!

Part of an AT backpack. Couldn't see a damn thing. For a brief bit, we had wet snow; after summit bailed down 7 husbands

Winter summit  Sucess!

My first real climb, up Lion's Head. Cold and windy (unsurprisingly) but clear.

Cog RR  Sucess!

Took the Cog RR to the summit. Summit covered in rime ice. 24 degrees with a steady 36 mph wind.

Incredible, windy hike

Attempted a loop starting at Pinkham Notch via Old Jackson Road > Nelson Crag Trail > Davis Path > Boott Spurr > Tuckerman's Ravine. Made it up to the intersection of Nelson Crag Trail and Alpine Garden (about .8 mi from the summit) and had to turn down the A.G. Trail and circumvent the peak because of the -5 degree temp and the 90mph wind blowing the rime around everywhere - just didn't quite have the gear for it. Still an awesome hike nonetheless with incredible views, definitely doing this trail in the spring/summertime next year.

solo to the top  Sucess!

I was on a multi-day trip across the Presidentials in a group with 3 guys. The guys decided to circumvent the summit and went southwest towards Lakes of the Clouds. I soloed to the top. It was misty and windy on the way up, but then the clouds cleared completely, and there were views in every direction for 100 miles.
