Sat Jul 16 Mt. Washington via Huntington and Tuckerman Ravines New
"This is the most difficult regular hiking trail in the White Mountains." - AMC White Mountain guide. If you're of the opinion that this induces enticement rather than dread, then read on! Huntington and Tuckerman Ravines are two of Mt. Washington's most scenic and spectacular aspects. This aim of this trip, sponsored jointly by Boston's Hiking/Backpacking and Young Members committees, is to get up close and personal with both, in addition to experiencing Mt. Washington's exposed alpine summit area. We will ascend Mt. Washington via Huntington Ravine, and descend via Tuckerman Ravine. At a moderate pace, we will hike 8.5 miles and gain 4300' of elevation, including a mile's worth of very strenuous terrain.

Sun Aug 7 North and Middle Tripyramids Waitlist
Join us for a moderately paced hike to the summit of two of New Hampshire 4000 footers, Mt. Tripyramid (4140 feet) and Middle Tripyramid (4110 feet). The hike, best known for its exposed rock slabs and great views from the Middle Tripyramid, will be 12.1 miles with about 3300 feet of elevation gain. After a mostly flat walk from the Livermore Trail, most of the elevation comes from an ascent up the South Slide of the Mt. Tripyramid Trail.

This trip is cross-posted in H/B and Young Members.
