Been tweaking, toying around with and adding to my New England Hundred Highest completion TR all day. Think I’m about done ...

I was in the Eastern High Peaks (ADK) on business with enough free time for a short hike, so I did a little redlining, visiting Rooster Comb (which I'd skipped during my Great Range traverse long ago) and looping over to Snow Mountain.

Snow Mountain is my first new peak on Summitpost in many years. Please add photos if you've got 'em.

I also noticed that we've got no page for Hedgehog, but I barely remember that one and have almost no photos.

June was a stellar month with 3 trips into Panther Gorge. Early June found us putting up an .11d top rope (Lioness Rampant), then guiding, and finally a short camping trip with the details here: https://www.summitpost.org/panther-gorg ... cy/1039619

Enjoy and God Bless.

Some of my close friends have known that I've been working on a book for nearly half a decade. The end result, Panther Gorge, is 228 pages with over 170 color photographs and plates.

Panther Gorge contains an in-depth description of the primary features and general history back to the 1800's (including ADK pioneers like Colvin, Street, Goodwin, Hopkins, Phelps, and more). The second part of the book, the Chronicles, is comprised of trip reports with photos taken during each outing between 2009 - 2018.

This is NOT a guidebook. It is a celebration of one of the Adirondack's most remote venues. At it's heart, its purpose is to document the Gorge's history and show the beauty of this magnificent area to those who cannot or will not venture to such a rugged, remote area--the original reason I started writing online trip reports back in 2004.

Many generous people have contributed to this project and I'm grateful beyond words to each. Thank you all! Panther Gorge would not be what it is without them.

All the glory goes to God for how this project fell together. Jesus Christ walked with me the whole way; whether I was solo or with friends.

My wife Deb proofread, advised, and supported me tirelessly over the years. Kristen Taylor patiently worked with me for over a year and took a collection of text and photos and created a professionally designed book. Don Mellor wrote an eloquent Foreword--it's an honor to begin the book in such a way. Tony Goodwin did the editing with a mindset of leaving the flavor of my writing intact. Nolan Huther contributed the stunning drawings mixed in through the pages.

Many, many people selflessly contributed research time, advice, guidance, and/or personal knowledge to the project including Jim Lawyer, Emilie Drinkwater, Will Roth, John Sasso, Richard E. Tucker, Scott van Laer, and Professor of Geology Jeff Chiarenzelli to name a few.

This journey as a whole and each trip belongs to the tenacious explorers, climbers, and backcountry aficionados that accompanied me. Without them, this book would not exist. Each of the following people shared one or more trips, bled, crawled, and climbed with me. With many, I was the student. Listed in trip order, they are: Mark Lowell, Greg Kadlecik, Scott Vanlaer, Anthony Seidita, Adam Crofoot, Allison Rooney, Bill Schneider, Hunter Lombardi, Justin Thalheimer, Dan Plumley, Devin Farkas, Nolan Huther, Alan Wechsler, Dustin Ulrich, John Pikus, Loren Swears, Jaryn DeShane, Doug Ferguson, Walker Wolf Bockley, Matt Dobbs, Jace Mullen, Steven St. Steven St Pierre, Ken Hebb, Laura Duncan, Brent Elliott, and Aaron Courain.

Thanks to everyone on this forum for the support over the last 15 or so years!

Passion and Warfare in Panther Gorge (the ice line in Marcy's Great Chimney) went at WI5/M5 on February 22, 2020. Incredible route, incredible outing! This was a spicy way to end the 2019/2020 PG ice season.
