I enjoyed climbing the Lion Head Trail today although I had intended to climb Tuckerman Ravine Trail. The trail was Class 1 to the Lion Head Trail turnoff the main Tuckerman Ravine Trail. I found the Lion Head Trail was mostly Class 2 to the summit. However, there were a few steep Class 2.5 sections were I used my hands to move up the rock. There was relatively little Class 1 trail above the turnoff from the main Tuckerman Ravine Trail.
Hi Hoot, I've added your difficulty estimate to the main description so people can get multiple views. Thanks!
