Right of Right Gully  Sucess!

Cold clear sunny day and low risk of avalanches. Nice firm snow enabled us to kick steps. Watched a group of riders and skiers come down around us but otherwise it was a quiet day in Tux. Summited Washington in strong wind, still clear sunny skies - a gift!

Route Climbed: Huntington Ravine, Descent: Lion's Head Trail  Sucess!

My first ascent up Washington, and wow was it a beauty! Had great weather, blue skies, and wonderful views around us. The scrambling up Huntington was a blast. Enjoyed a brief lunch at the summit house, and then made our way down the Lion's Head Trail, arriving at the trailhead 7 hours after our start. I can't say enough about this area...the views of the ravines were stunning!

Presidential Traverse  Sucess!

Crossed over the summit as part of a South to North Presidential Traverse. Stopped inside to eat our lunch. Very windy (80 mph gusts) and chilly (40's). The summit was in the clouds most of the day so no views while we were on it. Only views were looking back at the summit from Adams later.

Pushed off by 0 Vis

Unsuccessful attempt of south gully. Hiked up in the rain and once we hit the base of huntington the fog rolled in way too thick. Be back once the snow starts to fall thats for sure.

Tuckermans Ravine  Sucess!

I climbed this 3 or 4 times when I was a kid. This was a huge mountain back then.

Tuckerman's  Sucess!

A nice climb, but the visitor center at the summit is an unfortunate reality.

Route: Lion's Head summer  Sucess!

Climbed the route solo in Heavy Fog. My first time on Washington and no view. Very empty on top as only five climbed it all day.

Lion's Head and Boott Spur  Sucess!

Hiked up the TRT to Lion's Head, to the Summit (too many frikkin autos) and then down to Lakes to spend the night. Went swimming in the Lakes (frikkin cold), and then hiked down Boott Sput the next day.

A fun day out

Tuckerman Ravine Trail  Sucess!

Lots of people on the trail but the 60+ degree temperatures and sun made up for the crowds. Summit was a little disappointing (climbing for hours to reach a full parking lot), but on the whole definitely a great first climb.

started on Yale Gully ended in Damnation  Sucess!

climbed w/SP member Jerry L who has also posted some pictures, on the Yale Gully page. we climbed the first couple/few pitches of Yale Gully then climbed some mixed ground ending up in Damnation Gully w/about 100ft. to the top. Great climb!! I' actually recall the route pitch by pitch so here it goes:

P1: climbed the slab for 200ft.
P2: more ice to a snow/Ice anchor (~150ft.)
P3: we soloed a little AI2, then a little turf to a rock anchor (~125ft.) [picture posted]
P4: started w/ice then went to turf/trees ended above a little mixed ground (M3ish) (crack) with a #12 & #13 BD stopper jammed in (200ft.)
P5: we soled 4th class turf/snow (~200ft) [picture posted]
P6: (~85ft.) M3(+?) not my lead [I'll post a picture of this]
P7: 4th class rock/turf/snow. with one short traverse to the right, right above Damnation Gully (~125ft)
P8: (~175ft) 4th class snow/rock . with another short (but airy) traverse over Damnation Gully; brought us into the Gully proper (Damnation) then climbed about 100ft. to the top (in a white out)

we didn't slog to the summit

Perfect  Sucess!

I don't think there could have been more perfect winter weather; crystal clear, -15, low wind.

Don't Remember Much  Sucess!

Climbed this peak sometime in the 80s when I was a Boy Scout. I do remember it was long, but I had a good time.

Lions Head Route  Sucess!

First time attempting this peak. I was amazed at the sheer number of people headed up to Lions Head. We were literally in line behind 50 people. Besides that, it was awesome. We hit the summit around 3pm with sunny skies, low temperatures, and plenty of wind.

central gully  Sucess!

My first time in New England and loved every minute. We planned to climb Yale in Huntington but because of a late start and six climbers at the base of the ice (six!) we opted for Central and had a great snow and ice climb.

4th of July 1975  Sucess!

awesome place to celebrate america's birthday.....'cept I figure I shared the summit on a crystal clear day with about 250 other people most of whom either drove up or took the cog. But still remarkable

Left snow gully Tuckerman's  Sucess!

With the OSUMC group, climbed up the left snow gully in Tuckerman's and followed the cairns to the summit. Winds on the ridge 48mph gusting to 73mph. The gully was great fun - highly recommended!
