Hi we climbed Mount Washington this week. First day we made it to Lions Head but the weather was insane with 50-90mph winds so we turned back. Second day was better (but not great) and we ice climbed Central Gulley then decided to keep pushing across the snowfield at the top and make the summit in almost whiteout conditions. Then returned down Tuckerman trail. We never saw the sun in the three days we were there. This is not a little climb to be taken lightly. Even though it is only 6200 feet we packed for 6200 meters and the conditions felt like it near the summit! It was surreal but awesome!

Way to Go, Glen. Quite the accomplishment doing Mt. Washington in winter and living to tell about it. Glad you still have all your fingers and toes.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
