Hello everyone,

I live in Seattle and will be visiting the NE for the first time. I will stay in North Conway from  Feb 17th-20th. I will go there to learn ice climbing. I would like to find someone to do MT. Washington Peak with me.  I know it's 6 months away, but I  figure I'd make a post now in case it takes a long time to someone to reply. Plus, the days being during the week I don't think it helps me much since most people work during the week. I have heard Mt. Washington has the fury of the Himalayas in the winter, so I would like someone who is experienced with that mountain in the winter. If anyone would like to do that with me, could you please e-mail me instead of replying here? brida13@msn.com 

Thanks!

Brena :)

Not for nothing but....with all the climbing available in Crawford Notch, "elephant gully" is really just a little shitbag of an ice climb.

Not many 100 foot almost pure ice climbs that have such a short approach... I find this a fun early season route before it gets filled in with snow and a great end-of-day got 30 minutes to spare quickie...

Drove through a while ago.
Infrastructure funds are tight.

Great old pic! I wish I could see one of this spot before the train corridor was blasted... Definitely one of my favorite places in NH!

My friend Joe had never climbed the pitch before
so I figured why not him give it a go and put that hanger on at the same time ;).
We should have picked a different day as it was close to 90 degrees! Oh well...
