HP #3!  Sucess!

Moderately challenging for a day hike, but a good workout. One of my favorite day hikes, actually. First half is forested, but then the second half out of treelike is all scrambling.

Very very windy at the top!

#42  Sucess!

Very fun solo hike up the famous Mt Washington. The weather was unreal...warm, bluebird, no wind. Up Tuckermans Ravine in "record time" (could have gone faster if I didn't run into a couple slow people along the ledges), chilled on top and observed the tourist zoo, then down Crawford, tagged Monroe, and down Boott Spur. 5 hours 15 mins car to car from Pinkham Notch.

A nice peak with nice views  Sucess!

Done this a few times on visits to the East Coast. It’s a fun hike and there are plenty of folks so if loneliness is is a problem for you have no fear. I hope to get a chance to visit in the winter and find a fun route to snowshoe it. NH is magical by the way.

Highpoint #20  Sucess!

Took the winters route/Tuckerman's Ravine Trail. Even though there were wind gusts up to 80mph that day, mother nature calmed down in time for us to summit. We even had some sunshine. What a great way to summit and see the Observatory! We saw an avalanche but no one was fatally injured. Make sure to always check the danger of the day.

Peak #18 [NonaRider]  Sucess!

Wet and Foggy on Tuckerman's  Sucess!

Continuous rain for the whole day. The trail could most aptly be described as a stream. Lots of waterfalls coming over the bowl. I could have gotten some great shots, but it was too wet to take my camera out. The temps were not bad, or otherwise it could have been a very cold day on the mountain. Only saw 4 other groups. Two of them turned back due to the condition of the trails. The summit was a bit anticlimactic as all the buildings were closed and visibility was about 30 feet.

Up Tuckerman, Down Lion's Head  Sucess!

Up Tuckerman's Ravine in 2.5 hours. A bit humid for most of it. The steepness was more than expected leading to some traffic jams. The weather was great above treeline line. The Lion's Head Trail meandered a significant amount. Did the trip solo and met friends at Jackson Falls after. A wonderful day!

Crawford Path  Sucess!

Came up from the Crawford Path. Definitely got my leg day. Shrouded in clouds today

via the Auto Road  Sucess!

I was planning to get up and down this one fast enough to also get Mt. Mansfield in Vermont the same day, but I lingered and enjoyed more time on the summit than I had originally planned because the weather was clear and the cool summit air was a welcome respite from warm valley temperatures below. So Mt. Mansfield had to wait until the following day.

Mt Washington Summit expedition  Sucess!

Hit the trail by 7:10 AM and got on Tuckerman Ravine Trail, took it up till it intersect with Lion's head then got on Lion's head and took it all the way to the parking lot then to the summit. Despite being the best day in a week, it was cloudy most of the time blocking the views to the surrounding ridges and the wind was constantly blowing in excess of 60 mph at a thousand feet lower or more from the summit and all the way to the top. Forest Service folks confirmed the wind speed for us. Took the shuttle down to the visitor center. Great trip and a tough mountain for its height but nonetheless I bagged this puppy. :)

Tucerkman Ravine + Lion's Head  Sucess!

After a rough couple of days of weather before this, this day turned out to be perfect and clear. Some snow an ice but micro spikes were enough. It was a great, albeit mentally grueling, climb! I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Twice Back to Back Boott Jack and Huntington  Sucess!

Climbed this as an Atmospheric Scientist, interested in all the research on top, air quality of New Hampshire, and of course, to see how fast the wind was. Well, after a lush beginning on Boott Jack, hiking up conifer to stunted kremmholz I could get an idea for how fast the wind really does go. The constant cairns along the ridge indicated that it can be a safe place even in Winter if you are prepared. My climb was uneventful, with 40 mph wind on the ridge. Next day, Summited again via Huntington Route and it was much quieter. Saw the Harvard Cabin. And the "No Crampons on Porch" sign at Joe Dodge Lodge is precious!
