In avalanche season this trail should probably be avoided. Air Line or Lowes' Path would be safer.
Thanks for that heads up! I'll make sure I add that point to the page. Thanks for your tip and have a good one nartreb!
It's not just the technical difficulty of the climb, it's the fact that there is substantial avalanche danger. That's so rare in New England that it deserves special mention.
From the top of the headwall it's 0.5 miles on the Airline, not 1.5 miles as originally stated on this page.
Even with technical snow and ice experience, this route in Spring time should probably be avoided. We climbed up this route 4/12/18, high risk of falling between rocks, when they are covered with snow and ice. Sketchy!
