Route Climbed: Lions Head Date Climbed: March 4, 2004  Sucess!

I had hiked up to the Lions Head before but wanted to summit. With a good window I would feel comfortable soloing but I don't know the mountain. I decided to go with EMS and we overnighted in the observatory. We caught reasonably good conditions. Overcast midway up to the Lions Head but low wind. Solo dayhiked up the Air-Line the next day but reach my turnaround time at the treeline. Met some Germans headed up while I was headed down. They didn't look equipped for an overnight. I pictured the wife cursing (in German) to her husband as darkness fell while they were still on trail. I wish I had rented snowshoes.

Route Climbed: up -Tuckerman, down - Lion Head Date Climbed: July 2003  Sucess!

Left Sunday morning at 8:00am returned at 5:30. Met a lot of great people on the way up and down. 80 at Pinkham notch lodge, about 40 at the peak. Don't waste much time at the top, too many people, many of whom drove or rode the train.

Route Climbed: Tuckerman Ravine up, Road down Date Climbed: August 1989  Sucess!

Just adding my name to the list. Fun route, but odd to run into a parking lot at the top. It's not like I didn't know it was there, but odd.

Route Climbed: Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail-Crawford Path/down Jewell Trail Date Climbed: June 26, 2005  Sucess!

Started at 5:30 AM from parking area. Climbed with my 16 year old son Ryan. Had a great hike through the forest and along the Ammonoosuc River up to the Lake of the Clouds hut. Met some other hikers who had been on the Appalacian Trail for weeks. Reached the summit and stayed on top about an hour. Came down a different route on the Jewell Trail. Very hot and no wind! Unusual. Fun climb after having done Mount Mansfield in Vermont the day before. HP #3.

Route Climbed: Lion Head Date Climbed: September 2nd, 2000  Sucess!

Unplanned late summer ascent....determination and a lot of spirit took me to the top. Had quite a descent though via the Auto Road as the trail became overtaken by heavy fog and winds....

Route Climbed: Tuckerman Ravine trail Date Climbed: September, 2002  Sucess!

Was with my wife who found it difficult. As for myself, it was a nice hike. We slept at the Lake of the Clouds hut and then summited the next morning.

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: Huntington Ravine Date Climbed: September 7, 2002  Sucess!

Climbed this mountain around 25 times in all kinds of weather and never get sick of it.

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.
