Ascent Trip Report

Ascended via Tuckerman Ravine Trail and descended via Nelson Crag Trail and the Old Jackson Road trail. Hit Ball Crag, Agiocochook Crag and Nelson Crag on the way down. Agiocochook Crag is maybe 50 yards off the trail but was probably the best views of the whole trip. It took three hours to get up, and a little over 4 to hike down. Got to see Tuckerman Ravine without snow cover for the first time, very cool to see the Left Gully where we skied just a few months ago. It was a full 30 degrees colder at the summit than down in the notch, glad I brought a hat and gloves. The Tuckerman trail was crowded but the Nelson Crag trail was a ghost town we had all of Chandler Ridge to ourselves.

10.5 miles round trip.

4251' vertical gain.

4774' cumulative elevation gain.

7:45 minutes trailhead to trailhead.
