I had done Katahdin the day before, so I was worn out. I cheated and drove up! Oh well. The wind wasn't bad, just a light breeze.
Climbed Washington via Huntington Ravine, which was awesome! The summit was cloud covered and there were a million tourists there from the Cog and Roadway, but had great sunshine most of the way up. I had almost forgotten there was a road, when I was on the summit ridge I was rather startled briefly by a the headlights of a car.. Kind of a shame and definitely left me feeling a bit ambiguous about gettin up top. descended via Tuckermans and was glad I had chosen Huntington to climb. A lot more difficult with great class 4 moves along the way.
Went up with EMS Climbing School. Nearly reached the summit but had to turn around due to deteriorating conditions - high winds, almost zero visibility. Awesome climb though. Will definitely go back.
This is the Wal Mart of HPs.
We took the Cog Railway up. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. You could not have asked for more beautiful weather. My grandma (84) even made it to the top!
Wind in the 70's, temperature in single digits. The reverse would have been more comfortable.
From Pinkham Notch
Went up Lions Head as Tuckerman was closed for maintenance. Interesting way up and the route finding kept us engaged but saw several people injured or just too tired on the way back down. Almost white out conditions at the summit.. in July!
i tried to summit during late december with a friend
he ended up not feeling so good so stayed at the base of tuckermans
i made it up to tuckermans but decided i would rather live to climb another day
the wind and snow was filling my tracks in only a few seconds
46 degrees and 75 mph winds in July. I know I should have been ready for this place but it's unreal. Truly blown away by the mountain and almost literally blown off it.
Hiked from Appalachia, ended my traverse here due to lack of a spotted car, summit was beyond busy.
on AT thru hike in 2000, left lake of clouds early after my chores of preparing breakfast, then got to be alone on the summit until I saw a ranger around 7:30. I was gone by the time people started coming at 8...the best way to experience this overrun but otherwise amazing mountain
Nice hike except for the cars at the summit...
Nice hike had been up the auto road back in '73 had a sticker "this car climbed mt. washington"
Went up Tuckerman's Ravine and experienced a lot of ice fall. Summited in very windy conditions and decided on the safter route down via Lions head. Had a wonderful time getting this one.
Climbed this with my ex a few years back - can't remember the route or the date, I only remember we encountered many extreme weather situations along the route. We started with hot and humid, extreme sun and sun burns, then heavy rain at some point, then really strong winds and thick clouds at the top - it was actually scary - I thought the wind was going to blow me off the mountain! Would do it again though. Maybe this time I'll take more notes and photos to remember it better :)
Got hit by a storm above tree line. I totally underestimated those winds, they are no joke. I'll drive to the top another time instead :D
Finally, after an almost two year hiatus from any kind of peak "bagging", we took the 6 hour journey down to New Hampshire to fulfill a long awaited aspiration to climb north-eastern America's highest peak... the busy and "dangerous", yet anti-climactic, Mount Washington...

Tuckerman Ravine Trail
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.
