Description

These are the buttresses just below the 5500 ft "peak" of Boott Spur on the southern "wall" of Tuckerman's Ravine.

When the valley temps are in the 90's the weather is cool up here! Lots of potential up here and over on Lion's Head (see Lion's Head photo in "Summer Chimney")

While technically not a Wilderness Area, we should endeavor to keep it pristine.

Getting There

The GPS Position for this "AREA" is set to the approximate point on the Boott Spur Trail where one would leave the trail to circle around the base(s) of the Buttresses.


Two choices:

1) Pay $'s and drive up the Auto Road to the parking at 5700 ft where the Huntington Ravine Trail hits the Auto Road. Drop down the Huntington Ravine trail 0.3 mi. to the Alpine Garden trail; take that past the Lion's Head Trail to the Tuckerman's Ravine trail. Take that up 250 vertical ft to "Tuckerman's Junction". Then the "Lawn Cut-Off" trail to the Davis Path, to Boott Spur trail. Take this to the Boott Spur "peak" and beyond to where you can cut off left around the bases of the buttresses. (see photo) about 3 1/4 miles and about 600 vertical feet "up" (each way)

2) From AMC's Pinkham Notch take the Tuckerman's "Fire Trail" to Boott Spur Link trail to Boot Spur Trail. Before reaching the "peak" of Boot Spur cut off right to the base of the buttresses. About 3 miles and 3200 vertical feet. [NOTE: Taking the Boott Spur Trail from the bottom might be a little bit shorter, but the trail is much rougher! ]
