    Bro you are an absolute beast! I would love to try something like this one day

  2. In the Outside on June 3, 2023 at 2:17 pm

    Even though you didn’t make summit, it was still one hell of a trip. Can’t imagine how your legs felt having to walk most of that on your tip toes, speaks volumes to the shape you are in physically and mentally for that matter. As much as I love cold camping, I’ve never expeirenced it in the open (always been sheltered by a forest), let alone near the top of the mountain. I can only image the sense of freedom and serenity that comes with it. Thank you for sharing brother!

    One day this mountain will let you in! Great night shots! Breathtaking!

    Cool trip. They already lost a young lady hiking in the whites right at the fall to winter transition. You’re totally correct. What route did you take exactly and where did you camp? I’d like to do the same thing sometime. Thanks

    Hailing from Maine I fully understand
    the harsh winters and have frequented mount Washington many times. Bravo to the attempt and even more respect for safe decision making. Pride has been the death of too many people trying to summit many a mountain.

    Great video. Maybe you’ll save a life or two by showing what a smart decision looks like 👍🏻

  19. Bon Pecheur on June 3, 2023 at 2:42 pm

    Wow Marty , belle expédition ! Tu avais de superbes images en plus . Il est sage de retourner de bord quand on a un mauvais feeling , aller au delà est un risque inutile . Merci pour la vidéo !

  20. lucie readman on June 3, 2023 at 2:43 pm

    Good call turning back. Great video and loved the nighttime pics of the full moon and tent.

  21. Brian Adventures on June 3, 2023 at 2:45 pm

    Love the tip about drying out your baselayer!

  22. Mark Cummings on June 3, 2023 at 2:46 pm

    Excellent video and trip! It’s a shame it was snowing and zero visibility.
    Been there a few times myself but had better conditions.
    Would have loved for you to have stopped at the Adirondacks of New York on your way to the Whites.
    The Canadians love the Dak’s!

    You deserve more subscribers for the quality of your content. All the best

  24. John Runnels on June 3, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    Wonderful video !!

    What camera did you use for the shot at the end of the tent and.. how did you keep the tripod from blowing over ?

    Thank you !!

  25. Levi Allen on June 3, 2023 at 2:48 pm

    Any day you decide not to summit is a good day!

    Great video. Glad YouTube recommended it to me. Are you French Canadian by chance? You sound very similar to some of my friends from Quebec. All the best to your next adventures

  26. Riverbend Longbows Outdoors on June 3, 2023 at 2:52 pm

    Definitely no joke for sure 👍🏻
    Great effort
    Back to base layers. I still like my merino wool but I’ve now got a set of the Duluth Noorvik underwear.
    They are awesome 👌
    Check them out when you get a chance.
    Great video Marty

  27. May OHH on June 3, 2023 at 2:53 pm

    I am very happy to find your channel. It’s a very interesting and great video 🙂

  28. GR28 on June 3, 2023 at 2:54 pm

    It’s the "deadliest mountain in North America" because there’s a road to the top, shuttle busses to take you down, and a huge visitor complex at the summit. All that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors per year, and inevitably somebody among the masses has a heart attack on the way up, or some yahoo hikes up wearing shorts and a t-shirt in April.

  29. Cody C. on June 3, 2023 at 2:59 pm

    Sign: turn back or you might die. Marty: let’s go!

  30. Radar Base on June 3, 2023 at 3:00 pm

    Wow. You’re as legit as they come, Marty. Lots of wisdom in this video — thanks much!

    The northeast (along with everywhere else it seems) has had some wild weather this year. Third time’s the charm, eh?

  31. Brian Robitaille on June 3, 2023 at 3:03 pm

    Love the exterior still photo of the tent at night

  32. Canadian Sled Dog on June 3, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    Body drying clothes is a pretty rare skill I think people are afraid to commit to doing it or even talk about it since doing it wrong can go real bad. I like to add a dry base layer next to my skin when I do it.

  33. Meet Me Outside on June 3, 2023 at 3:05 pm

    Great effort man ! Good decision on not pressing on. That mountain isn’t going anywhere. I’ve been up there three different times and all three times the weather was entirely different each time. Take care !

  34. bucky716 on June 3, 2023 at 3:06 pm

    A few things… you seemed psyched to be back there! Welcome back! Those b-roll shots in the winter are some dedication. And learned that little bit of putting dry clothes over wet clothes and drying them out. Need to have the right materials of course but not sure I ever knew that. Good info!

  35. Melanie Cantin on June 3, 2023 at 3:07 pm

    Ouf! Solide météo là-haut!😦

  36. Sevgi Karaca on June 3, 2023 at 3:07 pm

    How difficult conditions are, I want to congratulate you, your effort and desire to come to these difficult conditions. Thanks for your extraordinary video.

  37. Pat and Andrea's Outdoor Adventures on June 3, 2023 at 3:15 pm

    Awesome video with beautiful footage of the mountain. look like you took the right decision to turn around. These decision are hard to take sometime but it doesn’t worth it to risk your life. Better to back for another trip.
    Merci pour ce beau video.
