Ammonoosuc  Sucess!

This was our first summit in the Eastern US, and maybe our highest latitude summit thus far (depending upon calc. of latitude of Cerro Tamango in Southern Chile). Given the horizontal rime ice, we were fortunate to have had very good weather on summit day.

90 mph gusts  Sucess!

It started as a beautiful day but as we got from Madison to Adams all wind and rain broke loose. The summit of Washington was so cloudy and windy, we couldn't see more than 10 ft in front of us.

Mount Washington  Sucess!

Awesome views. Everything at the summit was coated in rime ice from the rotten weather the night before.

Highpoint #25  Sucess!

Weather was horrible! 70 MPH winds, rain, cold! Wo took the shuttle to the top and even walking the few feet to the summit was pretty miserable!

First Winter Mountaineering Climb  Sucess!

I climbed this in Jan, 2013 as part of the 3 day EMS Intro to Mountaineering course with two other friends. It was an awesome adventure and intro to winter mountaineering. Overall great hike, felt good reaching the summit,especially with the visibility low and winds high.

Hiked to the top in college  Sucess!

I don't remember many details except that it was long and hard and cold. The hike was part of a meteorology class I took in college.

On the AT  Sucess!

going south. 62 degrees, foggy, with a slight breeze, at the weather station. Exceptional indeed considering the highest temp. ever recorded was 71 or 72 degrees. Exact date of climb is unknown, probably between Aug. 1-10. Started from Katahdin on July 3, 1971. My logbook of this trip has long since vanished.

Lion Head Winter Route  Sucess!

Winter ascent in white-out conditions. Over 4 inches fell while ascending. Very windy after Lion Head and on the summit with poor visibility. Holiday weekend crowds and lack of packed snow made upper mountain treacherous with rocks and crampons. 6 hours up, 3 down to/from AMC Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. Took summer Tuckerman Ravine Trail down from Lion Head. Highpoint #20.

First summit;)  Sucess!

Solo hike via Lion Head trail (roundtrip in 4.5 hours, 8.4 miles, approx. 4,300 ft elev. gain). Started early (7:00am) in cool weather, single digits temps (F), eventually it warmed up into high teens. A beautiful sunny day, almost windless, although on the top of Mt. Washington it was a bit "breezy", with 30-40 mph winds. Lots of rim ice above treeline, microspikes were helpful, esp. on the descent. Loved it, now preparing another one, this time in winter;)
