View Full Version : Desert rat seeks cold temps.

I am pretty much a desert rat. I have had extensive climbing and hiking experiences at Red Rock Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Bryce, Joshua Tree, and Death Valley. I have some alpine experience: Mt. Wilson and Mt. Goldenhorn, Colorado San Juans; Mt. Whitney, Cali.; Glacier Peak, Washington Cascades. However, I still consider my experience to be limited in regards to alpine climbing. I will be visting the eastcoast in early April and hear Mt. Washington calling my name. I know Mt. Washington has unpredictable weather, but if anyone can give me some beta, I would be thankful.

Look around then ask away. Use the search feature.

You've done Mt. Wilson in the San Juans? That's not easy--from Gerry Roach's book, that's class 4--I'm sure you'll have no problem on Washington as long as you pay attention to the weather. April can be tricky, it'll look like spring in the valley but it's midwinter up top!:)
