Beautiful Day!  Sucess!

Tuckerman Ravine / Lion Head

Beautiful day, not too many people on the trail. Visibility at the summit was top-notch.

Avoid motorcycle day.

Be sure to visit the Saalt Pub in Gorham for outstanding poutine and great beer after your hike (I did the night before my hike, after hiking Mansfield in VT -- but they are closed on Mondays).

So much for solitude  Sucess!

I realize it was a Saturday but still! Had to wait in a line of twenty people to get to the actual highpoint. Nice folks though and everyone willing to take photos of your group. Number 10.

Crew 63 Summits on 2nd Try!  Sucess!

Took the heartiest of my BSA Venture Crew up for our second annual winter attempt. Slept at Hermit Lake the first night in near zero weather. Headed up Lions Head early and summited in amazingly clear weather! Snow storm came in fast and we descended in snow all the way down. We decided not to camp at Hermit Lake again which was good because the storm raged for most of a day. First winter ascent after 3 attempts in storms, below 0 cold and 100+ mph winds on other trys.

First Summit  Sucess!

I climbed with the Norwich University Mountain Cold Weather Company. My group did Lions Head. Great hike. It was warm enough to summit in T- shirts, until we started standing around at the summit.

Late Winter Ascent  Sucess!

My brother and I Grabbed a shelter at Tuckerman Ravine and hunkered down for the night. It was nice having three walls and practically a fourth made of snow. Next day started up Lion Head in low vis/heavy wind. Had to break out the ice axes on the steep trail! Thought about turning around when visibility broke at Lion Head. Weather got better all day. Lucked out with a rather warm sunny day on top. Still windy, but it always is. Glissaded all the way down to camp!

My Wife's First Summit!  Sucess!

First day was a wet/windy trek up the Jewell trail to a nice camping spot about halfway. Summit day was gorgeous! Wife rode the Cog Railway down and left me to break camp on my own.

HP #4 Lion's Head / Boott Spur  Sucess!

It was a gorgeous day. We were worried it was going to rain as it was sprinkling in the morning but it turned into the perfect day. We headed went up Lion's Head trail and came back down Boott Spur. It was an unforgettable experience.

Winter [like] Ascent  Sucess!

Solo-hike up via the Jewel Trail. There was still at least 2-3 feet of snow everywhere. Winds were in the mid 40's and the temps around 20 degrees at the summit. Windchill was 1 degree.

Could have never done it without snow-shoes.

Been doing the Whites since I was a kid. Was up there last weekend on a beautiful couple days perched up on the ridge over Great Gully, best winter weather I've ever had up there.

Crappy weather, as is Washington's MO, but made it through  Sucess!

State HP #13 for us, and we debated going up in the first place. The weather sucked, and it was increasingly foggy, and cool, drizzly the whole day. Oh well, we made it up Tuckerman's, with near white out fog, and yes, heavy winds towards the summit.

First mountain climbed and summited

First climb ever. Definitely underestimated the weather, conditioning and will needed. Favorite quote by my marathon running climbing buddy about a quarter way up -- "marathons are for sissys!"
