Mountaineering: Mt Lincons Neck (Longish Day) Saturday

  • Mar 16, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • Mt Lafayette parking lot.

Mountaineering: Lincolns Throat - Indeterminate

This hike/climb will be based on conditions, but normal conditions this route has one pitch of ice climbing at WI3 can and should be expected at a minimum. early season there is three full pitches but during the mid season snow will blanket all but one pitch.

Essential gear is mandatory. Gear list can be found on the groups "Files" section. We will be hiking and climbing "off the beaten path"....

This climb is about getting away from the crowds and climbing a mountain.

This is a remote climb. Not difficult once in with plenty of snow its remoteness often requires snow shoes and 1-3 pitches of technical climbing at the most. Its a beautiful route with some unique scenery.. Based on our speed we once to the top of the ridge and having still plenty of sunshine left we can continue up to the summit of Lafayette and then down back to the cars.

    Wow! What a different place, then when I climbed in the fall with other from the group.. Goobers of snow. No rocks, Easy walking and made super good time to the base of the ice with plenty of rest's to check out the scenery etc.. Interesting little thing. Was as we climbed higher in elevation so did the clouds. They where paced with our accent. By the time we got to the summit of Lincoln and then the summit of Lafayette we where in mostly blue sky's.. So awesome day!!!!

    Hi Folks.. I know you all thinking about the conditions.. I have herd you and was prepared to give a ( Go/No-Go) determination here at noon.. I know some are getting nervous and I don't wish to risk or want to place anyone in the group in potential harms way seeing we are a group of this size covering the whole ravine. I know its likely anyone has the Beacons Probes and shovels to travel safe etc...
    But, Hang tight. I have calls out and I will do more research and will come up with other options and a rain date in a couple hours at the most.. Hang in their....

    Hi Folks.. I think some of you have been looking to hike mt Washington on this day. Maybe not Ice and snow climb. Our organizer Jeffery offered a hiking trip up the awesome Lion Heads trail which is not technical other then some always found small patches of ice which you would find on any trail.. You can head over there and RSVP there for that of stick it out here and we will do our best to tie you in to the end of a rope and we can head up for some adventure.. If you would like a real honest to goodness mountain guide for the day and maybe teach you the basic's or a little more intermediate stuff send me a email I can get you set up for the day..
    Cheers...

    Three ice climbers spent most of Saturday night perched on a ledge on the side of Mt Washington's Huntington Ravine. Here is the link to the entire story: http://www.conwaydailysun.com/index.php/newsx/local-news/95390-rescue-022613

      Yes Whats the lesson learned? Guessing here... 1st likely got a super late start. 2nd didn't have the skills to repel or ascend, likely cause they didn't have the confidence in the dark or want to leave the money behind in a form of a couple screws and some cord. Its just money. now Mark and Peter had to head out in the darkness and find them cause they couldn't afford to lose the[masked] so it cost the state the 1000 for the snow cat and all the other services to be on seen if Mark and Peter found they needed a team to extract or help with first aid.. Its just gear call it penitence for being allowed to climb the mountain and get home safely is my 2 cents Ice screws or stopper nuts are not invaluable they cant be left behind. Some common sense and better planning on there part might have been good. My Rant!!!

    Would lead a gully climb.

    February 22, 2013

  • Jeffrey

    Jay I would volunteer to lead a hike if there is an intrest.

    February 7, 2013

    • Jay B.

      Sounds great.. When we get closer I will likely build the teams like I did this past weekend and it seamed to go as smooth as could be expected based on the group size etc..

      February 7, 2013

  • Tom S.

    Jay is this an Ice Climb in March? I was hoping to get on Pinnacle because MountainProject lists it as a 3 Pitch WI3/3+. Let me know if this is the case and I'll start battling on the waiting list.

    February 7, 2013

    • Jay B.

      Others who just want to hike will also have that option If there is a organizer for that.

      February 7, 2013
