Achieve Greater Heights!
Our goal is to help you to become a more experienced and responsible winter mountaineer. Your safety in the mountains depends on the decisions you make. This climb is a solid first step for climbers interested in climbing the greater mountain ranges of the world.
Situated at the intersection of three major storm tracks which affect the northern Appalachian Range, and rising from the surrounding lowlands for much of its 6,288 feet, Mount Washington is known for its extreme weather conditions. Mount Washington is the highest peak in the Northeast and the conditions above timberline are as serious as any mountain in North America. As we ascend we will discuss general mountaineering skills, winter navigation and we will be able to practice basic crampon, ice axe skills and self arrest techniques. No previous mountaineering experience is required to register. However, participants should be physically prepared and well equipped for a rigorous all day experience. We will meet at IMCS at 7:00 a.m. for a gear check and to get fitted for mountaineering boots, crampons and ice axe.
