So approaches to ice climbs are similar in nature. Usually some post holing up the gully to the climb and then it depends how much of a boot pack is in before you get there. I lap the workout when I start going off trail and will add 30 TSS per hour of post holing and dial it back if there is a good boot pack. It really inaccurate but I just try to stay consistent with it. I think that’s the best that can be done.
Putting a lot of trail miles in this winter on snowshoes, and most of the workouts seem to have been on fresh snow, so lots of trail breaking. For my regular WOs on hilly terrain or steep uphill in the Whites I covert to HR TSS and add in for elevation as per the “cheat sheet.” If I enter these deep snow WOs completed on snowshoes the same way, I’m feeling that the TSS is not reflective of effort. Any ideas on a scoring for this kind of WO? Thanks
