Mount Washington is arguably the epicenter of mountaineering in the Northeast. Take your pick of trips ranging from one day summit climbs to the multi day Presidential Traverse. And that’s just one area of the White Mountains. While the other peaks of the White Mountains are shorter, they still host a variety of mountaineering terrain. Whether you need an update on above treeline snow conditions or need a boot capable of -20F temps, stop into IME for help.

If your thinking about the Presi Traverse or a technical mountaineering trip in the Whites, consider taking a course from IMCS or buying the guidebook, An Ice Climber’s Guide to Northern New England.
