Huntington’s Ravine Trail

Huntington Ravine is a glacial cirque on Mount Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  This is our favorite route to Washington’s Summit.  It has the steepest and highest headwall, crosses a boulder field, ascends a collection of broken rock fragments (scree) at the base of a cliff.  Avalanches, icefalls, and hypothermia have killed climbers in Huntington repeatedly in recent years, and the hiking path is usually not passable until late May or early June.
