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;)

First Climb - Mind Blown  Sucess!

Winter Climb with Guide from REI. Totally inexperienced and over my head. Completed the climb based only on a great guide, a supportive group, and balls. I was hooked.

the path less travelled  Sucess!

Took the Lion's Head up, only ran into one other hiker, and found a fresh orange in a plastic bag someone dropped (it belonged to the other hiker I met), nice snack (had to pick it up either way, hate litterbugs). Bagged Monroe also, thanks to a 70 yr. old gent who lead me there, visibility was zero, but he knew the way. He only charged a handshake and a granola bar (I had to force the bar into his hands). No views, very windy, 38 degrees, lots of wet mist. Learned my lesson on this one, cotton isn't even a word allowed to be spokan in my home, NOW. Took Tuckerman down, crowded as hell, and picked up lots of wrappers and what not. Easier route than Lion' Head, but due to the crowds I wish I went down the way I went up.

Lion Head Winter Route  Sucess!

4AM to 3PM. Took the Lion Head Winter Route until it connected with the Tuckerman Ravine Trail past the Alpine Garden Junction. Cold day, wasn't snowing, low wind, low visibility, heard avalanches in the ravines while on the snow slope. Summited around 11:30 AM. Coming back Winter 2014 for round two.

My Ice Axe and Crampons saved me from serious injury on the descent down the Lion Head Winter Route.

An Ice Climber was killed in an avalanche that day, but didn't know about it until I got home late the next day. Mount Washington isn't a walk in the park hike while under snow.

Anywho, very fun, exhausting, but fun. Glad I got to put some mountaineering skill to the test that day.
