    Neil did the Lower Range yesterday.

    "Easy going on packed trail to LWJ then fairly heavy snow with drifts to Upper. Armstrong very difficult (very, very!) . Then to our joy there was a packed trail coming off Gothics , which then went down towards Orebed. Pyramid had the deepest snow and we switched leads often. We=me and Shawn (autochromatica on forum). Very deep snow descending to Saw jnxn and again to our joy there was a packed trail up Weld to Saw.
    Brutally cold but stunningly beautiful day. Best views were up Gothics. The cornice is forming and the snow pack nice and hard. The wind crossing Gothics was insanely cold."

      That was a most amazing experience. A day I'll never forget. Sean's heroics getting me up the ladder section on Arm merited him getting a broken trail to the top! I always tell people if they want to achieve mindfullness (whatever the hell that's supposed to be) just to come hiking with me. No need to pay a guru!

        Neil cranked out 3 more mountains yesterday, for the fundraising event called Project 100. Just another day with brutally cold temps.

          NumNum, are you an official records keeper for this project?
          Do you already use any tool to keep track of the progress of this project?

          I have created a simple EXCEL tracker.
          It uses EXCEL formula and doesn't use EXCEL macros.
          It doesn't automatically grabs data from a project web site and requires manual data entry.

          According to this tracker, as for today (December 31st):
          - Neil hiked 16 peaks vs. 11.2 expected (expected number of peaks was calculated assuming linear progress between December 22nd and March 20th and finish of March 20th)
          - Neil is 4.8 peaks ahead of the linear progression
          - Neil hiked 142% of number of peaks expected according to linear progression

            I'm one of four. We have the hiker (Neil), a financier (Jack), a mapper (Geoff), and a photo manager (Tom), and the media guy (me). I'm certain Sylvie is wearing many hats too. That is a pretty neat spreadsheet!

          1) Neil is an overachiever
          2) spreadsheet is deceptive as it doesn't weight the peaks. There are much harder hikes / peaks ahead
          3) Neil had off a large block of time. Most of the time it will be 3 days at a time.
          All that said I would say with the super cold and deeper early season snow that Neil was very happy with peak harvest but realistically I would put him right on track.
          There are the Santa's, Dix's, Seward's, Sawtooth's, major southern bushwacks.
          Great start to a long journey !!

            The spreadsheet, in whatever form it takes, is a good way to keep track of what has been done and what remains. One could always weight the peaks as 1, 2 or 3's. How do you weight South Dix if you are doing the 5? Weighting hikes might be more accurate. But none of that is necessary. I either reach 100 peaks by March 21 or I don't.

              Instead of linear, I'd like to see a parabolic model: starts slow and then the slope climbs to infinity at the end...

                Linear, parabolic, whatever, just as long as he doesn't use an asymptotic model. That would take forever.

              As for January 4th:
              - Neil hiked 21 peak vs. 15.7 expected (expected number of peaks was calculated assuming linear progress between December 22nd and March 20th and finish of March 20th)
              - Neil is 5.3 peaks ahead of the linear progression
              - Neil hiked 134% of number of peaks expected according to linear progression

                We've added a progress map to the mapping site. Completed peaks are in green, and the rest are in red.

                  Neil hammered out the Seward range Wednesday, with Joe. A beautiful day out there, and 4 more off the list.

                  We added the maps that Geoff worked on to the navbar on the blog as well.

                    Just in case you didn't already read about it, we got snow. Neil had a nice snowy trip to Avalanche Mt. He even had some great company.

                      Neil was able to get 3 more peaks Yesterday. Accompanying him was Joe and Alistair. A great day in the mountains.

                        It was a very cold morning when we got underway just before dawn. However, I only wore a base layer shirt under my shell and after a brisk 20 minutes of hiking was warm all day long. No issues with my hands or feet. I had 3 hats and kept my hood up most of the day. For Colden I put a puffy on over my shell, unzipped. Coming down I was too hot and the puffy was soaked but the shell nearly dry! We were lucky in that someone had broken Colden out. From the false summit to the summit you could see they had worked very hard. The trails blow in and at times they disappear completely in less than a day and they fill up with dense powdery wind-drift that is tough to break.

                            A busy three days of hiking. This report includes the previous 2 days but wraps it up with the Dix range traverse. See link for trip report and tracks.
