Mount Washington, New Hampshire

French page is here: ascension du mont washington

Mount Washington dominates the Presidential Range and is the highest mountain of northeast America. Despite its rather easy approach, weather changes can be surprising. Many weather extreme records have been registered at the summit, and they are not records of nice weather! Every year, people are trapped by these rapid weather changes. Despite all this, Mount Washington is a fantastic playground where conditions of the alpine routes are exceptional. We propose to live the mountain and long routes experience while being back in time to enjoy a good meal at the shelter.
