fun mountain - much better in the winter -
Should have brought my snowboard. It's to bad this is the best the east coast has as far as mountains go.
Started Early made it to the link in no time. One of the hottest times in history for NH. Got totally baked in the ravine, peeling weeks after. Very long approach due to heat. Took crag trail to road and walked last mile to summit by road. Usual tourists on top.
That a beautiful trail, not so hard. On the zone alpine we have nice view.
Very slippery w/light rain. Fun time. Couldn't see much from the top, although it was still a good feeling. 2nd state high point.
Longest and tallest and steepest hike I've ever been on. Dampering to start because I have never seen the mountain until we reached the summit. Once we reached the top, it was amazingly beautiful! Couldn't have asked for nicer hike. Beautiful with clouds moving fast and then leaving the mountain completely. Fun and memorable day with my boyfriend, Britt, and sister, Kami.
Absolutely gorgeous day! Started off in the clouds with clearing once we reached the summit of Monroe. Then we were back in the clouds and the summit hung over top. After reaching the summit everything cleared out and we had awesome views everywhere. This was about as perfect a day you could ask for on this mountain. I summitted with my girlfriend Nicolle and her sister Kami for my second summit of this mountain.
Very bad weather on the way up but clear at the top. We had an excellent view of a rainbow stretching over Mt. Adams. An excellent finish to our annual trip to New England!
I was racing against a storm up the Right Gully. The top of it was filled with ice which made for some dicey climbing. The summit was covered in an ice fog. Since the storm hit, I went out the Lions Head. I got to experience some of Mount Washington’s ferocity first had. I saw one climber get blown off of his feet on the way out, fortunately he was not injured. I wound up being covered head to toe in ice but dry as a bone beneath my GORE-TEX.
Easy to follow trail. Great views.
Took Lion's Head Down.
Great day! -15 windchill....awesome compared to the next day (-30 to -40).
This was my first winter hike up a mountain and I loved it. We got a late start (9:00 AM), but still summitted.
long and beautiful climb, didn't attempt the summit
thin and awesome.
amazing day although we got winds gusting to 45mph. wouldnt want to see it on a bad day...
Multiday backpacking. Gusts to 60 mph. I haven't done this area of the presidentials in winter. Yet.
(sorry for the late post)
Though the top feels like Disney world, it is a great climb. After a couple hours in the wild, up the difficult mountain, I knew I was near the top when I heard the ba-beep of a car being unlocked. I couldn't see any cars because I was under the ridge, so it was kinda freaky. Be prepared though. Some tough weather awaits you.
Couldn't have asked for a better day...clear, cold, windy--but what would you expect??
Easy half day hike from Pinkham Notch.
