From the 20 mile long, wild and exposed Presidential Range Traverse, to snow and ice climbs like Pinnacle or Damnation Gully, to ascents of Mount Washington – the Northeast’s highest summit – New Hampshire’s winter mountaineering is an incredible training venue and a classic destination in and of itself. At Cathedral Mountain Guides we learned to climb in these mountains. We have spent countless days behind goggles and facemasks 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 New Hampshire’s White Mountains, they are our home.
