The White Mountain Report: Sep 18th, 2014
We had a late Spring, but it sure feels like an early Fall/Winter right now. Fall officially starts on September 22nd, next Monday, but it sure feels a lot like the end of October right now. The weather pundits are saying we're going to get our first hard-freeze overnight, tho we had a warning a few days ago. Mt Washington has had some trace snowfall, tho nothing really to write home about thats for sure. Of course there has been measurable snow on the summit in every month since they have been recording such stuff, so a little snow and rime is not all that big an event up there.

The Penguin -  WI 4 II

With 60 meter ropes you can climb Penguin in 2 pitches. However, if you break the second part into 2 short pitchs, belaying from the birch just below the chimney, you can both hear and see your partner most of the time (recommended).
