11.8 miles north on Route 16 from Route 302 in Bartlett, NH, Gorham, NH
Finally...time to burn those crappy rock shoes, put on real gear and go get some ice. We will be climbing the early ice in Tuckerman Ravine.
Our climb begins with a long hike up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail to Ravine. From there, we'll decide what to climb. Most likely, it will be on the left side of the headwall.
You will need full winter climbing gear: technical climbing boots, crampons, ice axes, helmet, harness, two or more sets of gloves, balaclava, Gore-Tex outerwear, fleece, parka, etc. Ideally, you should bring a 60 M rope (single or 2-half ropes) suitable for ice.
You will have to have some ice climbing and winter hiking experience to join us at this time.
More information will be provided as we get closer to the season.
