I am hiking up to Tuckermans Friday
I wanted to know the conditions for the Tuckerman trail
Just wondering if snowshoes are enough or will I need crampons?
I have hiked all winter in different areas and havent had to use crampons
only my snowshoes

Thanks! :)

I would check this out

Now that I look at your post again, I believe you're asking about the trail up to hojo's. My guess would be microspikes on the trail below the shelter.

Hope you had a enjoyable day & hike

How did the ravine look, less snow than normal? I'm planning to head up one of the gullies later this week and all the pics I've been seeing look that way, but it's hard to really tell without actually being out there
