Long drive. Up at 3, out the door by 4, on the trail around 8:30.

Looks to be a pretty straightforward bushwhack (famous last words :? ).

Waaaay easier than Scar Ridge last week. Herd path was pretty solid for most of the off-trail stuff. Kinda reminded me of one of the trail-less Adirondack High Peaks back in the day before the 46Rs Club paved them over. Scar Ridge, on the other hand, was a solid whack.

Anyway, up to 92 NEHH peaks going back 18 years since my first. :shock: All eight remaining mountains are in Maine. Fort, Elephant and the six-pack. Gonna try for Fort and Elephant next month.

Wow, that's an awesome shot!


Here are a couple of pics from Vose Spur, NH on Friday. Both taken from the talus field a few hundred feet below the summit.

looks good!
are you doing the NH 48? I am still "working" on the 46 HP's... but it seems climbing takes priority :(

yeah that area was so nice we're going back for Labor Day.

edit: woops, NH100 I guess? not the 48.

Thanks.

New England Highest Hundred. I was "stuck" on 88 from 2004-2012 with no attempts. Consciously tried to break away from the list bagging thing for local stuff. Now I just want to get it done. Looking to finish off 'em off next year probably.

nice.
so I take it you've done the 46 too? I "started" in 2005. pretty lame... I'm not even close to finishing. I get these bouts of motivation to go hike but then I choose to climb instead.

Lists are cool and fun as long as you realize they don't really mean anything. I did the 46Rs between 1993 and 1995 when I was living in the High Peaks (Lake Clear). I'm sure you'll get 'em done in time. The first I ever heard of the 46Rs was when I was a kid and my best friend's Dad was working on them. Took him like 20 years but he got them all in before he died.

I stopped at #30 in 1971! Back then, trailless peaks were really trailless, and we would try to string a lot together ((e.g. all the dixes) in a weekend, because most of us didn't even have drivers' licenses. But winter up there opened up a whole new world... and some trailless peaks are "easier" to do in deep snow!

I started the 46 in 1976, while still in high school. Got about 20 done. Moved away from the Northeast in 1979 and didn't move back until 2006. Well, not totally right since I was in Maine 84-90 but then I was focused on having fun in the Maine woods. Now I am up to 38. Life long pursuit? I keep on seeing talk about speed records. Is there a record for the LONGEST elapsed time to become a 46er? :-)

ps - Anita, lots of beautiful country in the central Adirondacks around Indian Lake. The Cedar / W. Canada Lakes are some of the most remote country on the east coast. Some interesting mountains and rock for you too! I can't wait to explore some of the land along the Hudson that the state is just opening up!

38 peaks over 37 years! That's awesome. Are you going for the supported or unsupported slowest time? :D

But seriously, which ones do you have left?
