Ascent Trip Report

Took Tuckerman and Huntington Ravine, Nelson Crag Trails up to Ball Crag. Had a blast going up Huntington Ravine-not as intimidating as the guidebook made it out to be but we had relatively good conditions going up. Had hazy views going up the ravine but we got socked in from Nelson Crag Trail Jct up to the summit of Washington.
