A New York City couple looking for a private tour (hence no guest images) wanted the 6288′ Mt Washington. Assigned to lead them was Redline Guide Pat Ferland and lead them he did. Not only did they summit the Rock Pile, but expanding their loop (since they were feelin’ it) he also took them onto the 5531′ Mt Clay. Interestingly, even though the lovely and very highly regarded Mt Clay is well over 5000-feet, it doesn’t count as a New Hampshire 4000-footer due to its lack of prominence — which must be 200-feet or greater — on the Mt Washington end of the mountain. The extra energy they showed must have been from the snacks they ate at the hut and the chili they consumed at the summit. A summit, curiously, with no line we might add. Weird, right? Here are a few photos of their trip.
