Lions Head - Winter Route  Sucess!

Beautiful weekend to climb washington.Spent Friday climbing ice on Willeys slide. Hiked up to Harvard cabin on Saturday and set up camp. Hiked to Huntigtons ravine Sat night to do some ice anchor and belay training. Got up Sunday morning and summitted via Lions Head Winter Route. Sunny, 20 degrees, and only 30-40 mph winds above tree line. Great day on Mt Washington.

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!"

Cool waterfall  Sucess!

After watching the old steam engine start its run up the mountain, we took the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail from the cog parking lot. Much of the trail follows a waterfall with multiple drops, so there is awesome scenery most of the way. Beyond Lake of the Clouds, we hiked the Crawford Path to the summit. Views were limited because clouds had enveloped the summit just before we arrived. Due to time constraints and weather, we wussed out and rode down the toll road with my wife, who had driven to the summit. HP42

Caught In A "Hurricane"  Sucess!

With very poor weather looming over the mountain, I chose to drive up the Auto Toll Road to the summit parking lot. What I did not expect, however, was the drastically different conditions at the top. There was thick fog and the air temperature had lowered six degrees (from 39 to 33) in only 15 minutes. Most of all, the wind was increasing, reaching near-hurricane force when I ventured solo to the summit. Everyone thought I was crazy, but I did not come all that way to stop at the summit gift shop and I did not want to wait there as the conditions continued to worsen. I found myself going between the Tip Top House entrance (for a tiny brief wind shelter) and the summit multiple times until I finally was able to get a usable summit photo. The wind was knocking me down, repeatedly, and my fingers were nearly freezing. This was my 46th State Highpoint.

Delayed Hike  Sucess!

Rain kept us off the mountain for most of the morning. We started up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail around 11, intending to meet friends at the top who were taking the Auto Road. Bad news - the rain closed the gravel portion of the Auto Road, so after attaining the summit we had to hike an additional four miles down the road in the waning afternoon to finally meet them (they never did make it to the summit).

Huntington > Tuckermans  Sucess!

The ravines and the upper mountain are amazing. The summit was kind of deflating. At least they had hot dogs.
