Hi to all. I am an obviously new member. I signed up to have a better chance at talking with some of you. First off, I live in Florida with my wife and daughter and we work with Children with behavior issues. I got into climbing while in College a long time ago, but grew up hiking around the hills of Western Pennsylvania.
Next summer I am signed up to do a summit attempt of Denali via the West Buttress route. I was up there this past summer and did a mountaineering course on the Kahiltna Glacier where we studied crevasse travel and rescue techniques along with other useful and vital skills associated with winter mountaineering.
This December I am headed up to North Conway to get some cold weather and try to get up Mt. Washington with my brother-in-law. We are taking all the advice and necessary precautions which will ensure a safe and fun experience.
So, I would love to chat with any of you who have ascended Mt. Washington in December or near that time of year via the Lions Head winter route.
cheers for now.
