We will attempt the standard North Route. I have not climbed Mt Washington before so this will be a team approach as far as our technical rock climbing route goes. Please familiarize yourselves with the route by whatever means available. The technical portion of the summit block is 3 technical rock climbing pitches on rotten rock to 5.3 rating. The rest is hiking and scrambling up the North Ridge.
