    Default Conditions for Tuckerman Trail

    Hi there,

    I saw on Mount Washington Avalanche Center this morning that the Tuckerman Trail has a significant amount of ice on it. Just wanted to see if anyone has been up recently and could comment on what they found and used for traction, crampons vs. micro-spikes. Any other comments on the conditions would be great!

    Thanks!

    Dave

    Default Tuckerman Ravine Trail

    A good place to check Tuckerman Ravine Trail conditions is here:

    Looks like microspikes will get you to Hermit Lake. You do not state your intentions, but I would add that people do not generally go up Tuck's to the summit as it is most definitely a technical climb in winter, but take the Lion Head winter route instead.

    Another place to check trail conditions is here:

    I see no recent reports on Tuck's, but good place to check, anyway.

    Also here:

    And here:

    Thanks very much for the sites. Our plan would be to go for a summit attempt via the winter route. I'm fine with staying out of the way of falling ice chunks!

    There is one report for Washington via Lions Head from a few days ago.
