Route Climbed: Tuckermans to Hunington Ravine to Central Gully Date Climbed: 10.29.2005

Sun was 100 %. Trails were in good condition, the snow was some what packed. No postholing. One scetchy move crossing the river. With a pole, the crossing is not a concern, counter-balance works wonders.

Several blow-downs on Hunington. The talus field was covered in snow and (fan) was stable as was snow in Central gully. A very fun snow climb.

Topped out, descended via Escape hatch and back the way I came up.

Route Climbed: Lion Head (I think) Date Climbed: June 12, 1993  Sucess!

My first mountain...didn't know what I was doing, but carried plenty of clothing, food, and water. 70 dgrees when we started and about 20 degrees on top. I guess since my first mountain was so crowded, I've never been suprised by the numbers on Colorado 14ers. Great to take advantage of ammenities....bought a hamburger in the snack bar at the top! That made topping out in a parking lot not so bad.

Route Climbed: Up- Boott Spur / Down- Tuckerman Ravine Date Climbed: Sept 19th 05  Sucess!

The Boott Spur was the kind of trail I love; narrow through the forest and amazing views above treeline. This was a fantastic climb up for me... Tim and I spent an hour at the top - but the clouds didn't break for us. The ravine was great to climb down as well. Overall, one of my favourite mountains yet.

Route Climbed: Wait Until Dark Gully Date Climbed: April 14, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed mt. Washington many times over the years. Not sure which trail is my favorite, but I've been up Glen Boulder, Tucks Headwall, Lions Head, Huntingon Ravine Trail, Crawford Path, Gulf Side, Amonosuc Ravine Trail and the jewel trail. I think my favorite is the Glen Boulder because it is less traveled and has amazing views into Tuckerman Ravine. My favorite day on Washington was this year though when we climbed Damnation Gully in Huntington Ravine, Wait Until Dark Gully in The Great Gulf and the Tuckerman Ravine headwall in Tucks in 9 hours. What a great time!

Route Climbed: Presidential Traverse Date Climbed: June 3 2005  Sucess!

8 peaks - we missed the last one on accident - in 19.8 miles. I slept REALLY well that night!

Route Climbed: Boott Spur up Tuckerman down Date Climbed: Sept. 19/2005  Sucess!

Positively loved this mountain, it gives me a whole new respect for the eastern peaks. I imagine there are many peaks out west (that are considerably higher) that would pale in compariosn next next to this. Great day, great peak, glad we took the spur.

Route Climbed: summit via Huntington Ravine Tr. and Pinnacle Buttress Date Climbed: sept 3, 2005  Sucess!

a perfect way to combine hiking with climbing. The five or so pitches of alpine granite, though mostly very easy, are a nice break from the relentless foot plodding that the ascent of the mountain otherwise requires.

Route Climbed: Crawford Path Date Climbed: 1 September 2005  Sucess!

Day 4 of Franconia to Pinkham. Thrid time on the summit. Clouds broke great views. what a treat, coke and flush toilets. We got the news of the Katrina catastrophe from the rangers here. Spend a comfortable hour before heading out to the Gulfside Trail en route to the Madison Hut.

Route Climbed: Crawford Path from the Nauman Tentsite Date Climbed: August 27, 2005  Sucess!

Reached the summit around 1 pm, after leaving the Nauman Tentsite around 9:15, going over Pierce, over Eisenhower, and around Monroe.

Views today were beautiful, and the crowds on the summit were plentiful. It is always nice though to pound down a cold diet coke, and no trip to Washington is complete with at least a bite of a Whoopie Muffin.

The hike from the Lake of the Clouds Hut up Washington is no joke, we were gassed.

Route Climbed: Lion's head Date Climbed: March 2005

Had to turn back to guide down one of our party members who's face mask holes froze up. Pretty serious cold for such a small mountain, come prepared.

Nothing technical was required beyond ice axe and crampons.

Route Climbed: Up- Lion's Head, Down-Tuckerman Ravine Date Climbed: July, 2005  Sucess!

First real mountain, had some slight difficulty but was so happy when I made it to the top. I felt down Tuck was OK, a little steep. Had a great time over all, I just wish they built an escalator instead of the stairs at the top of the mountain. Were those hard to get up or what?

Route Climbed: Tuckerman Ravine Date Climbed: May 1992  Sucess!

Hiked this on a school trip. It was very cloudy and cold at the top - fitting for a mountain famous for bad weather!

Route Climbed: Pinnacle Gully Date Climbed: January 09, 2004  Sucess!

Should have brought my snowboard. It's to bad this is the best the east coast has as far as mountains go.

Route Climbed: Huntington Ravine Date Climbed: Early June,2005  Sucess!

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.
