Summit & Swing!

Five med-students from NYC took a well deserved couple of days off from their studies to come up to North Conway to summit Mount Washington and get a taste of waterfall ice climbing the following day. We had excellent weather for our summit attempt (successful), and despite the crowds yesterdat we had plenty of ice to climb. A good two days indeed!

“Summit & Swing” is a new 1 and a half day program. We climb Mt. Washington on Day 1, then do a half-day of ice climbing on Day 2. This is offered to give those who need to drive aways home a chance to do more than just a day with us. For more info check out or call 800-310-4504!
