    Are you sure you mean Tuckermans and not Huntington? Stupid question, I know, it's just that I've never heard anyone use the word 'pitch' to refer to climbs in Tuckermans, while I have plenty of times in regard to Huntington. If it was Tuckermans, what part did you go up?

    I'm pretty sure she meant Tuckermans. This time of year it still has plenty of rock and water ice exposed.

    Here's a shot of the headwall that same day:

    We used to aid climb at night for an extra challenge at the local crags. People thought we were a little off kilter....

    Sounds like a cool trip!
    Only one way to go.. Up!

    I've been trying to make a full moon, winter, night ascent of Washington for a few years now. I haven't been able to get the weather to cooperate but I'm optimistic. It'll happen for me at some point.

    Another thing I'd like to do is an night Presi traverse in the summer.

    Yes, we did tuckermans. It was definately not your typical roadside ice climb but it was icy and climbable. Last year conditions were much more stable. We are dying to get into Huntingtons and do some ice climbing there! As for the moonlight summit attempt we are gonna be up north almost every weekend and if it looks great we are gonna give it a go!
