 Huntington ravine
I have not seen any reports on Huntington Ravine.
I had all intentions of attempting it this past Thursday. I got to the Pinkham Notch visitor center and saw the weather report for the day and decided against it. It was fogged in and said to have wet rocks. I was alone so I decided against it and went up Tuckermans instead.
Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated as this hike is still on my list.
Thanks
Mike Z

 Re: Huntington ravine
Mike, I did this with some others last fall. Definitely wait for a dry day, there are several slabs that are tricky enough when dry. Allot a lot more time than you normally would for the distance/elevation gain distance. It's a lot of fun though!

My report, which may be of some help: http://mattshikes.blogspot.com/2014/11/huntington-ravine-and-washington-too.html

Thanks Matt, that was exactly what I was looking for. Now all I need is the weather to cooperate.

Joe had this report a little while ago too...

As Matt said, wait for a nicer day, and probably a few nice days before so it can dry out. Views are not tremendous on the far reaching side of things, but you wouldn't want the scenery socked in either. I've done it twice in late summer and agree there's a couple spots that are tricky enough when dry and I'd have no interest in them when wet or icy.
