Ice & Winter Climbing / Tuckerman, Saturday 9-Dec.
« Last post by ralbert20 on December 11, 2017, 09:22:07 AM »
Was absolutely stunning! It was my first time ice climbing in Tuckerman, (I know... I know...) and I had no idea how much ice there is up there! We only did 3 of the pitches we saw, but we could have done at least half a dozen more. They are steeper and longer than they look as well. We did a sweet little line in a bowl, then did a corner system, and then a grade 4 pillar. Off to the left, we could see another grade 4, or possibly grade 5, and some other curtains. There was also a nice slab way left that looked like grade 3, and possibly 2 pitches.

I can't believe it took me so long to get in there for ice. We typically just go to Pinnacle, but Tuckerman is great for early season ice. We were also completely alone on the climbs. There were some die-hard skiers who skied a few short turns, but no one else was climbing. I wonder how much the snow will affect the climbs - maybe they filled in now.

General Climbing / Harvard Cabin

Looking to visit Huntington and stay at Harvard Cabin in late December.  Is a 20 degree bag appropriate for the cabin?

Map of access trail and parking.

If you try and map this, Google Maps sends you down Fall Ln. DON'T access via Fall Ln., it's marked as a private drive and we don't want to piss off the locals. Drive just past Fall Ln. and take the Class 6 road just before Tangle Wood.

GREAT NEWS... Band M was a nice alternative place to climb and it was a drag to loose it. kudos to all involved in getting to back on line.

I'm really excited that we were able to accomplish reopening Band M this year. This was truly a joint effort between the Access Fund and Friends of the Ledges. Access Fund just released our end of year Top 10 list and Band M is what pushed our "Climbing Areas Opened" list into double digits. If you're interested we launched our end of year fundraising campaign today. We have a generous donor matching all gifts up to $100,000 through December 15. You can help us continue our work in the northeast and nationally by visiting the Join or Give page on our website (

Happy Climbing,
