To "count" as a real winter ascent, the climb must occur between
the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. So, my climbs of
Moosilauke, Cannon, Mt. Washington via Lakes of the Clouds, Zealand,
and Monadnock don't count. Anyway, there's nothing quite like
real winter conditions. Not all attempts made it to the top,
but they're worth mentioning anyway.
- Washington (6288)
- Adams (5774)
- Lafayette (5260)
- Lincoln (5089)

- Pierce (4310)
- Tecumseh (4003)
