Snow soft enough for good grip in Ravine. Winter Lion Head requires FULL CRAMPONS and three steps on bare rock. MicroSpikes fine on lower Tuckerman / tractor road and above Lion Head. Some walking on rocks required on summit cone. Got to see Obs crew deicing the tower and its instruments, plus a Uruguayan flag being unfurled by its owners.
