    Default Mt Washington Youtube Video

    In late August myself and three friends took a hike up the mountain with video cameras. The result of this is a short documentary which we hope everyone on this site will enjoy. It is only 12 minutes long and can be found here in two parts

    Just a bit more information.... This was all of our first times actually climbing the mountain and although we made the climb successfully it was much harder than any of us had anticipated (although the camera gear certainly didn't help) We plan on making another trip in late spring/ summer and would love to meet up with anyone who has some great stories about the mountain. Until then keep on watching and hopefully enjoying.

    Real nice video, guys!!
    Been there so many times that I could recognize almost every shot, as to exactly where it was.
    First time? You did great!
    You didn't mention what routes you took DOWN . . . or was it a ride down?
    Never-the-less it was an accomplishment you will all remember for the rest of your lives. I know. I can still remember, vividly, MY first time climbing Mt. Washington - 1970!! - like it was yesterday. Except the summit building wasn't there and Lakes of the Clouds was smaller.
    I'm hoping this set off in you the same burning desire to do it again, that I felt so long ago. So far I've managed to get out at least once or twice every year since - including this past year, when I was lucky enough to have hiked Mt. Washington twice - once up the same route that you took (weren't the views down into the Great Gulf unbelievable?) and once up one of the most difficult routes - Huntington Ravine. Doubt I will EVER be tired of climbing that mountain - no matter how many others I have been to. There IS something unique about THAT mountain. Glad you could experience it too!

    We will definitely be making many more trips up Mt. Washington in the future.

    Unfortunately we didn't make the hike down. We had interviews with some of the observatory staff and honestly I don't know if we could have made the trip down.

    The views were great throughout the hike and the day we had was crystal clear, a great experience all around.

    Looking at the times on the video you were getting late in the day and not at the summit yet. Good choice to go Plan B for getting down.

    yea we weren't taking any chances knowing how inexperienced we were as a group. Plus lugging camera equipment and hiking is not ideal conditions.

    Next time we plan to take a harder trail but to do some conditioning first.
