Ascent Trip Report

Mt Washington is NOT for the out-of-shape hiker. My legs are burning still ... two days later!! It was beautiful. But don't expect a trail ... more like a convenient scattering of large rocks. :) I went up at a good pace (2:50) but paid for it on the way down ... took about the same to get down on tired legs.

Went up and down on Tuckerman's Ravine + Lion's Head + summit.
