Route Climbed: Tuckerman's Ravine Trail Date Climbed: 8/20/2001  Sucess!

Successful climb to the summit after an attempt last year in 70 mile an hour winds and torrential rain. Conditions were: foggy and windy as usual. No view from the summit. Hike down to Lakes of the Clouds and climb Monroe and back down to Pinkham's Notch via Boot Spur Trail.

Route Climbed: Tucks (trail & a winter gully), Lion Head (summer & winter) Date Climbed: 1999, 1998, 1997  Sucess!

I've been to this peak 5 times and the summit 3 times, during the spring, summer, and autumn. Both the spring and autumn visits were with snow in winter-like conditions. The first time I hiked up with Rob and Robyn in August and the area above the Tuckerman bowl was cloudy with 15 foot visibility. The second time was with Josh and I did a solo trip the third time. The latter two trips were with perfect weather and clear views from the summit. The other two times were a winter visit where I turned around at Hermit Lake due to weather and an early spring attempt on the Dodge's Drop route, also with Josh.

See more photos: April 25, 1999, December 20, 1998, and August 3, 1997.

I spend a good part of my youth on Mount Washington and the other peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire -- a fantastic place.
