Ascent Trip Report

Set off Pinkham Notck visitor center at 10:00AM, stopped to view Crystal Cascade for a moment, and up along Tuckerman Ravine, passed by Hermit Lake Shelters and reached Mt Washington at around 2PM. Took 4h for 4 miles! The view was great until about 1 mile before the summit, then it became more and more windy, cold and misty. No visibility at the top. Stayed at the visitor center for about 1h (chilli con carne was great) and started to head down via Lion Head. Rainy and windy for the first 1 mile from the top. Back to Pinkham around 6:30PM.

Apparently, there was a hiker who had a fall at Huntington Ravine and we saw an RV going up the trail as we were going down.
