Around midnight last night, we had a brief period of clearing allowing for views of moonlit landscapes along with lightning from passing thunderstorms to our northwest. At the tail end of a 30 second exposure, four bolts struck in rapid-fire succession along the NH/VT border. The first image is the original wide-angle view and the second is a cropped view of the four bolts. ... See MoreSee Less

The left side of the photo is one of the steeper runs in Tuckerman Ravine called Chute. Snow coverage continues to melt and expose rocks, cliffs and cracks in Tucks. Despite the party atmosphere and long history of being treating as a playground, consequences for mistakes can be swift and severe. The gentleman who recently slipped on ice near the top of Chute, fell to the bottom, striking rocks along the way (upper left of photo). Incidentally, these rocks wouldn’t be visible while standing at the rim and transitioning from booting to skiing. This person had skied in Tucks over a hundred times and said he had never needed crampons. While he wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time, a helmet wouldn’t have changed his injuries due to the location of impacts. What is your game plan for having fun, being challenged AND staying safe? Talk it through with your partners before you come up. If you don’t think steel crampons are needed, carry lightweight aluminum ones. If you choose not to carry those, commit to turning around before you need them and have a solid plan for putting on skis in steep terrain or simply facing in and downclimbing. #kbyg #skimountaineering #tuckermanravine #tuckermansravine ...

Got to be smart climbing. Be prepared!!

Myles - you know what playgrounds have? ropes!
Plan plan prepare plan Jay Abbott
I knew my limit! Made it to the top of the rocks on the Chute before coming upon a crevasse the size of a VW bus. That and my fear of heights made me stop. Still amazing but definitely need a helmet and at least micro spikes. We honestly should have been way more prepared than we were that day, but thankfully I know that for next time.
Do you know of the guy who fell will make a full recovery? I Heard about the incident a few Sundays ago
I did The Chute today and crampons were definitely a must !!!
A guy was climbing without crampons and helmet tough 😕
I've been wanting ti get up there test my skills but def not doing it alone, any recommendations.?
Great safety message. Thanks.
Nice write-up - just like whitewater - hey, it is whitewater - the biggest danger is hidden obstacles and the unexpected!
What was the gentleman’s outcome
Thanks for the informative post. Alas, sometimes you can't fix stupid.
Complacency is dangerous

We still have a few spots for tomorrow to climb for free!
Climb for free Tuesday, April 2, 2019
We are looking for six people to participate in day of rock climbing in the Gunks, free of charge* for day two of the final assessment days.
The day will consist of beginner to low-intermediate climbing with a guide candidate on routes from 5.2 to 5.7 under the supervision of an AMGA Certified Rock Instructor and Rock Guide. ... See MoreSee Less
Still need climbers?
Cool! I'm interested but also have to take some scheduled calls at 10, 11, and 2 - still doable? I might also be able to pick up any additional volunteers from Brooklyn.
Any way to get there via public transpo?
Wish I lived in NY. I would be there!
What’s the ratio of climbers to guide students?
What hours are the volunteers needed?
As if I needed another reason to hate work
If only I had seen this sooner
I can do it if you still need people.
