Mt. Washington climb

  • July 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Mt. Washington is the central plug of an extinct volcano and has notorious poor rock. We will climb the North Ridge from the PCT TH which is close to Big Lake where we'll car camp Friday night. Our route will be pretty easy climbing with the toughest pitches being[masked] depending on the pitch we choose. The difficult part of the climb will be the bad rock, not the pitch. We'll be up and down in one day.

 

Member requirements: Members need rock experience more to make sure we don't kick down rock then the actual difficulty of the pitches. We might just set hand lines but please know how to belay.

Required equipment: Harness, helmet.

 

Signing up for the climb:

I will open the climb for sign up right away but with everybody on the waiting list. I'll choose the climb team off the waiting list no later 30 days before the climb.

Cancellation policy:

Do not ask to be part of this climb if you might have a scheduling conflict. It seems to be a pattern for Meetup activities for people to sign up as place holders and then cancel in the last minute. If you are one of the people with that habit, this climb is not for you. No cancellations for other then medical emergencies after July 12th.

There will be a mandatory pre climb meeting on July 23rd.

    Perfect weather and not too easy like I had feared. The rock was not all that bad, either. Fun climb in all.

    from summit post
    The only pitch that needs protecting is the first pitch up the rotten chimney. This is relatively easy 5th class climbing but there is significant exposure. It is somewhat difficult to traditionally protect. Bring webbing to sling horns and a couple of large hexes. There is a need for a rope and harnesses as well as additional webbing for the rappel/descent. The webbing at the block may be good but bring along extra just in case as well as a couple of rappel rings. Make sure to bring a helmet.

    Alright. From pictures of n sister climb. The pinnacle looked snow free. Mosquitos will be a big problem till we get above them. Most likely

    I was actually thinking of dragging one of my sport climber friends up this, but I'd love to go with the group!
