Cracks take gear from small nuts to #4 Camalot...Tricams...bring tricams!
Gain base by rap or ascending scree in Lion's Head Gully. Moist alcove offers 5.9 start above scant protection. Next section very easy getting to 5.6 as the slight twist in the dihedral starts. Some 5.7 stemming required above. Delicate 5.8+ exit or grunge exit left, neither exit offers easy pro. Belay beneath the slender, SW pointing, diving board rock.
4th class up to reach the Lion's Head Hiking trail. Turn right to descend to Tuckerman Ravine Trail

Bushwhacked a bit, then crossed massive boulder field to reach Lion's Head Gully. Ascended loose scree to base and bushwhacked beneath one short climb to reach the wet alcove beneath the longer dihedral. Tough start, then very easy to delicate face work amidst some loose. Midway, I found some stemming in ruggosities w/o positive holds, very secure with excellent pro. Loose flakes and rocks on belay ledge beneath diving board.
