I'm submitting this 1.5 years after the effort. I wanted to put it on the books as the first established women's time. I know I could improve my time (especially ascent) here by leaps and bounds, this was a solid effort. I stopped for about 5 minutes at the top to get some videos/photos and talk to a guy who was somewhat lost, giving him directions. Lots of time to be gained here by anyone who wants to give it a go! I'm a believer that the Winter Lion's Head route should only be used while it is open (in the winter when snow is present) to avoid causing erosion and making the FKT more fair. A winter Mt. Washington is a different beast than a summer one, and should be categorized separately.
