Comments
Comments: Another day on Tuckerman with no objective, just to stay somewhat fit. Tuckerman trail is nice & firm now so it was micro spikes for the duration. Only went up to the 2nd steep pitch past Hermit Lake shelter because fog & a snow squall dropped visibility to 100 yards as I got closer to The Bowl. Came back down to the Fire Road then up Raymond Path with 2" of new snow but very solid underneath. Back down to Huntington jct then back up to the shelter and finally a moderate run all the way down to the bottom. It's the equivalent elevation gain as if summitting the Rockpile but without the wind chill. Kind of a 'Lazy Man's' hike although the pace was fast today. Saw about 10 ice climbers coming down the trail.
