Mount Washington: is the wildest peak east of the Mississippi River. It is also one of most popular hiking, backcountry skiing, alpine climbing and ice climbing destinations in New England. Affectionately known as "the Rock Pile," it is located in northern New Hampshire just west of NH SR-16 between North Conway (to the south) and Gorham. It is also known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather" and the world record holder for the fastest wind speed ever measured: 231 mph on April 12, 1934 (See the "Mountain Conditions" section for more info on weather).

    It's been a warm past few days. Do you still expect good climbing conditions this weekend?

    April 11, 2013

    • Jay B.

      Yup Still very much winter up there... Will see some signs of spring but climbing will still be found.

      April 11, 2013

  • Chris W.

    Jay do you think you will have a group that is doing South?

    April 8, 2013

    • Jay B.

      Hi Chris I doubt it.. Most want some combination of ice and snow.. But its up to each lead climber that attends they can go anywhere they would like to climb.. These meetups are always about finding others to get out climbing with and seek some adventures. You can post a thread like this and see if anyone is interested in that climb.. Never hurts to try..
