Crazy Wind on Lions Head  Sucess!

This climb was not for the weak. Winds were gusting over 100mph and there were full white out conditions. We were the first of the day to reach the summit and not sure if anyone else made it up that day. Most climbers turned back at the crest of loins head due to the snow and wind conditions.

"warm" day!  Sucess!

Went up Tuckerman's on New Years day. Was hoping to do an ice climb, but ended up being the warmest New Years Days on record! Was still windy and cold and "rimey" at the summit though.

Windy and bad visibility

Because of heavy winds and bad visibility was forced to turn around!

Awesome Weather

Went up the Lion's Head Summer Route, got up to Split Rock by mid morning to find temps hovering around -5F with winds sustained over 100 mph. Went out around the large carrin for some pictures/video but decided not to attempt to cross the alpine garden with a wind chill around -50F. If you know anyone who was up there in tennis shoes please smack them for me, thank you.

Perfect weather  Sucess!

My niece and I decided to hike Washington because we had both done it ten years earlier. We went up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail and it was hot! It was actually in the 60's on the summit. I must admit, it is kind of a bummer to do all that work and have all the cars and craziness at the top. I hiked Glacier Point in Yosemite last year and felt the same way. On the Glacier Point trail we passed two couples the entire time we hiked and then when we reached the top after all that solitude, it was a mad house! At the summit of Washington I did buy a shirt that said "this body climbed Mt. Washington". I have been hiking at my little Blue Hills for the past couple of years but this hike gave me the bug and started me on my goal to hike all 48, even though I couldn't walk for days after it. It is just hard to find people that want to hike.

SHP 13  Sucess!

Summit via Huntington's Ravine. Stream crossing was a little interesting given the recent tropical storms. But awesome none the less.

Ignore the buildings!!  Sucess!

Still a great mountain. Been up a few times, once in winter. Huntington Ravine Trail is great. Lions Head is a fun conga line in winter, and was my first use of crampons. I'll always remember it. Tag the true summit, descend a bit, sit and enjoy not being at the summit circus.

First Peak  Sucess!

First climb, was successful even though we got caught in the dark on the way down. My final trip before i joined the Air Force.

SHP #12  Sucess!

I had done Katahdin the day before, so I was worn out. I cheated and drove up! Oh well. The wind wasn't bad, just a light breeze.

Washington Success!  Sucess!

Climbed Washington via Huntington Ravine, which was awesome! The summit was cloud covered and there were a million tourists there from the Cog and Roadway, but had great sunshine most of the way up. I had almost forgotten there was a road, when I was on the summit ridge I was rather startled briefly by a the headlights of a car.. Kind of a shame and definitely left me feeling a bit ambiguous about gettin up top. descended via Tuckermans and was glad I had chosen Huntington to climb. A lot more difficult with great class 4 moves along the way.

Nasty Weather

Went up with EMS Climbing School. Nearly reached the summit but had to turn around due to deteriorating conditions - high winds, almost zero visibility. Awesome climb though. Will definitely go back.
