Ascend a snowfield to the top of Mount Washington via Tuckerman Ravine.

Description

Continue your ascent from the Center Gulley Ascent and top out on the East Coast's highest peak. This ascent goes up the center of the upper snowfield and reaches the summit of Mount Washington. I rated it Extremely Difficult because this particular route is a continuation of a headwall ascent.
