So, Don and I ended up ice climbing up Tuckermans Ravine Thanksgiving weekend and topped out at dusk and the visibility was pretty low due to cloud/fog cover. We coiled up our ropes and made our way to Lions Head trail just as it got pitch black out. It got super windy (one gust knocked me over sideways) and then it cleared out! It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! There we were, hiking up on the ridgeline with a zillion stars surrounding us and the other ridges around us outlined with a deep blue line contrasting the black sky. We were going to hike up to the summit but we had friends waiting for us at Pinkham notch and did not want them worrying. So, we decided we want to find a clear night to climb Mount Washington.
Has anyone done this before? Is the weather more stable at night? Let me know!
