    Default Up Lion Head Or Down Lion Head For STP

    I am doing my first STP and I was wondering which way does everybody thinks is better to go up Lion Head and down Tuckermans or up Tuckermans and down Lion Head?
    Thanks

    I always go up Lions Head and down Tuckermans. The views as you get out in the open on Lions Head are awesome.

    Last year I went up Tucks and down L.H. Although I wouldn't be afraid to do it in reverse.

    We met several members of this forum on Lion's Head last year on the way UP. That's the only way we've ever done the loop.

    Depends on what the weather is like. If it's raining I would go up via the headwall and down LH. Or go Lion Head both ways.

    Thanks Brad but I believe he is trying to get three weeks off because his brother inlaw is getting married around July 13th? . But thank you very much for the offer.Also thanks Kaseri I will keep that in mind depending on the weather.
