Tracks on Tuck's already!!


Recommended Posts

I've been going up there for 10 years in a row. Planning my annual trip first week in April just hope the avalanche rating is low. Until then I've got a ton of exercising to do. :rolleyes:

Wonder what the rating was when that person went down the headwall, proably got luck the headwall didn't break. I know what me limits are and wouldn't venture out if the conditions are unstable.

I take it Tuckerman's is dangerous this time of year?

It's about 600ft vertical from the top of the headwall to the bottom of the bowl. Here's an interactive site that provides some maps, pics and more stats:


Avalanche danger can be considerable this time of year. Check out the pics from last year: http://www.bomberonline.com/VBulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2024&highlight=tuckerman

Most of the Headwall ripped with an enormous fracture line! :eek:
