Description 

First ascent in Huntington Ravine - also one of the longest routes in the ravine. Watch for avalanches.


Location 

Once you hit the Alpine Garden from the top of the climb, you can either descend down the climb (if you're comfortable on this "steep" terrain) or walk left to the Escape Hatch or take Lion Head Trail (recommended - provides an amazing walk along the Alpine Garden). Or follow the cairns to the summit - can follow several trails or the auto road off the mountain. The auto road will not drop you off at Pinkham Notch, so only use in emergency situations.


Protection 

Snow stakes & ice screws

CONDITION REPORT 

Mostly snow, a few sections with soft ice. Felt some hard ice underneath if you wanted to place screws. Minor icefall coming down off of central buttress.
