Hello fellow climbers
I am eighteen years old and am falling in love with mountaineering and am looking at climbing Mount Washington sometime before April. I am in decent shape and hike alot but have never been above treeline or in such cold weather. What are some good routes that will challenge me and allow me to use my crampons and ice axe? Can you summit and descend in the same day and if so what would be a general time schedule to follow? What other things do i need to do before planning out my trip? By the way I am planning on climbing with a partner.
Thank you any help is greatly appreciated.
