    That is true. I guess if I were to do it, I would camp at Hermit Lake and wake up really early and that way, I would be up before too many people had even hiked up to that point.

    I'd like to go up Hillman's Highway the next time I go up Washington. Once I saw that, I was kicking myself for going up Lions Head, but being my first time on Washington, nothing to complain about.

    I see, that clears it up a bit. According to the map I was looking at, the winter/summer lions head route is not differentiated. I just assumed that the tuckerman ravine headwall route was the...
