First day was a wet/windy trek up the Jewell trail to a nice camping spot about halfway. Summit day was gorgeous! Wife rode the Cog Railway down and left me to break camp on my own.
Great day on the mountain, and will be back many times in the future.
It was a gorgeous day. We were worried it was going to rain as it was sprinkling in the morning but it turned into the perfect day. We headed went up Lion's Head trail and came back down Boott Spur. It was an unforgettable experience.
Solo-hike up via the Jewel Trail. There was still at least 2-3 feet of snow everywhere. Winds were in the mid 40's and the temps around 20 degrees at the summit. Windchill was 1 degree.
Could have never done it without snow-shoes.
nice that there's hot food on top though.
Beautiful weekend to climb washington.Spent Friday climbing ice on Willeys slide. Hiked up to Harvard cabin on Saturday and set up camp. Hiked to Huntigtons ravine Sat night to do some ice anchor and belay training. Got up Sunday morning and summitted via Lions Head Winter Route. Sunny, 20 degrees, and only 30-40 mph winds above tree line. Great day on Mt Washington.
Been doing the Whites since I was a kid. Was up there last weekend on a beautiful couple days perched up on the ridge over Great Gully, best winter weather I've ever had up there.
Got down as Storm Q started rolling in.. got lucky with the weather, for Washington.. 30mph, -10wc.. fun little winter climb
Want to return one day.
Great trip with Troop 230 of Yardley, PA
went up, got caught in a storm and waited it out in the lake of the clouds and then pressed on to the summit. excellent summit but i was hoping for alittle wind haha
State HP #13 for us, and we debated going up in the first place. The weather sucked, and it was increasingly foggy, and cool, drizzly the whole day. Oh well, we made it up Tuckerman's, with near white out fog, and yes, heavy winds towards the summit.
First climb ever. Definitely underestimated the weather, conditioning and will needed. Favorite quote by my marathon running climbing buddy about a quarter way up -- "marathons are for sissys!"
i bought a shot glass.
got it on a traverse. I had a torn abdomen and didn't know it
Completed as part of a hut to hut weekend along the Presidential range. #9
started at the hut and beat the first tourist train. had a great time at the summit!
After watching the old steam engine start its run up the mountain, we took the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail from the cog parking lot. Much of the trail follows a waterfall with multiple drops, so there is awesome scenery most of the way. Beyond Lake of the Clouds, we hiked the Crawford Path to the summit. Views were limited because clouds had enveloped the summit just before we arrived. Due to time constraints and weather, we wussed out and rode down the toll road with my wife, who had driven to the summit. HP42
Tuckerman Ravine in 3 hours. Took the train down. Strong wind but wauv, the views!!!!
