New Hampshire Mountaineering

  • New Hampshire Mountaineering

    The incredibly accessible Mount Washington and the Presidential Range is home to a unique wealth of terrain perfectly suited to the climber and mountaineer.

From the 20 mile long wild and exposed Presidential Range Traverse, to ice and snow climbs like Pinnacle Gully and Damnation Gully, to hikes to the summit of Mount Washington; the Northeast’s highest summit. At Cathedral Mountain Guides we learned to climb in the Presidentials. We have spent countless days behind goggles and facemask leaning into the wind, battling spindrift and carefully avoiding avalanche terrain. We have spent glorious sun drenched days above the trees and, sometimes, even above the clouds. Days when the ferocious range feels instead like a playground. We love the White Mountains, it’s our home.
