New Hampshire's Mount Washington, the most prominent mountain east of the Mississippi River, is notorious for its intense winter storms and erratic weather. In fact, this peak is commonly known as "Home of the World’s Worst Weather" and held the record for the highest wind gust directly measured at the Earth's surface (231 mph) for 76 years. In Podcast 26, the IIAWT duo talks about the winter route up Mount Washington and what it takes to attempt a peak in fierce winter conditions.
