Mt. Washington Ascent, Mountaineering Course
Mt. Washington is without a doubt the most sought after and recognized peak in New Hampshire. Climbing Mt. Washington with MMG is a truly awesome experience you will remember for years to come. With a sub-arctic climate, this mountain's weather and conditions can make finding your way quite a challenge. We'll let the mountain's reputation speak for itself.
This is an open enrollment climb. You and your group will meet your guide on day one to distribute and check essential gear. We will spend the day practicing with crampons and piolet (ice axe). We will also discuss layering, fueling and managing the elements of wind and precipitation as we hike a smaller exposed peak. On day two we will meet at the trailhead very early for our summit attempt. As you ascend you will be transported through various zones of temperate forest before reaching the alpine. Arriving above tree-line will experience the mountains true colors. On a clear day the summit treats you to a 360-degree view of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Canada.
