Power = 10 (Vote Weight = 1%)

Occupation: Extreme Hiker, Esq.

August 2008 3-week Trip: My 11-yo stepson accompanied me through Owl Head, ADKs, and my 15-yo nephew was with me for the rest. Maine: Katahdin (Knife Edge route, Pamola-Baxter-Hamlin traverse); North Brother Mt. (Baxter SP); Dorr Mt. (Acadia NP). Adirondacks, NY: Haystack; Gray-Marcy; Jo; Owl Head; Whiteface (Placid Slide); Van Hoevenberg; Sawteeth-Gothics-Armstrong-Upper Wolf Jaw; Noonmark-Round; Roaring Brook Falls. Vermont: Mansfield traverse (Maple & Sunset Ridges). New Hampshire: Mt. Washington traverse (Huntington's and Tuckerman's Ravines); Field-Willey-Tom; East Osceola & Osceola.

Winter 2008 Highs: One day, 7500' ascent in Vermont: Mansfield; Camel's Hump; Abraham & Ellen. ADK W46: Allen; Marshall; Seymour; Colvin-Blake; Haystack-Basin-Saddleback; Nippletop-Dial. NH: Cannon; Lafeyette & Lincoln. ME: aborted attempt .7 mi. from N. Brother summit.

Summer 2007 Highs: The Trap Dike on Mt. Colden (wet Class 4). July/August spent two weeks in Colorado, culminating in ascents of six 14,000' peaks in 4 days, including a solo of the Kelso Ridge on Torreys/Grays (II, Class 3, 4:20 car-to-car).

2009 Goals: Finish ADK Winter 46. Possible speed-hiking attempts: Bristol Hills Trail in one day (55.4 miles, 7000? ft. ascent). One-day NH Hut Traverse including Pinkham (50+mi, 15000'+ ascent). 48 hr. unsupported, unsupplied NP Trail throughhike (122 mi).

Hiking Resume: Adirondack 46er #6001. 39/46 winter; 31/46 winter-solo. 71/NE115 (50 in winter). "Full" Presidential Range Traverse (one-day). Cranberry Lake circuit in one day (44 miles).

Hiking Goals: NE 115. Lower 48 14ers. Denali, Aconcogua. Maybe Cho Oyu if I can make it without bottled O2. That's an "easy walk-up," right?

A Few Words: "A formidable beast, the Ogre can often be observed clambering unroped directly up the steep gorges and waterfalls of the Finger Lakes region, or running amok in the Adirondacks. This highly educated hick (oxymoron?) is usually spotted alone, but occasionally he is seen scampering about with other half-crazed hillfolk. A decade of urbanization has resulted in this symbolic backlash of frenzied hiking."
