Hey everyone,

I am going on a 5 day expedition on Mt. Washington this January (has a pratice for Mt. Mckinley) and I was looking for a place where I would be aloud to camp on the mountain, but I could not find any information about it... I dont want to be staying in a lean-to since I would like to camp in more intense conditions... Can anybody help me ?

Thanks !
Laurent

There are specific rules for Mount Washington described here:

Good luck! Would like to see some pictures and a trip report on this forum after your trip!
