Little Headwall

The little headwall is located below Tuckerman Ravine at the base of the ravine floor. It passes over the Cutler River and on down to HoJo's 600 ft below. Note in late spring there is considerable hazard from undermined snow as meltwater flows out of the ravine down the Cutler River. There is also considerable scrub exposed in the springtime. By traversing to the south, you can access the lower snowfields as an alternative route to HoJo's. El. 4,500 ft (top), 3,900 ft (bottom).
