A steep NEI 1-2 Climb / Alpine Snow Route

Ryan Gibbs
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

This route is typically an ice climbing/ ascent route and extra caution should be given on the descent. 1/3 from the bottom, there is an ice bulge that varies greatly in size depending on the season that can either be sent or rappelled (50-75ft in length and approximately 55 Degrees).

Description

Skin up Tuckerman Ravine Trail until you meet the Huntington Ravine Fire Road. Take the fire road to the Harvard Cabin and continue to Huntington Ravine. Carefully ascend the fan of the Ravine up the most prominent line. Hikers right provides several islands of safety on the ascent. The gully tops out at the Alpine Garden Trail, but due to high winds is sometimes blown out and not skiable from the flats of the alpine garden.

This is a steep and committing ski line and requires the ability to self-arrest.
