I am pretty much a desert rat. I have had extensive climbing and hiking experiences at Red Rock Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Bryce, Joshua Tree, and Death Valley. I have some alpine experience: Mt. Wilson and Mt. Goldenhorn, Colorado San Juans; Mt. Whitney, Cali.; Glacier Peak, Washington Cascades. However, I still consider my experience to be limited in regards to alpine climbing. I will be visting the eastcoast in early April and hear Mt. Washington calling my name. I know Mt. Washington has unpredictable weather, but if anyone can give me some beta, I would be thankful.
