  • Winter Gathering Peaks List 3/5/2016 and other activities

    For the past 3 of 4 year we have put a group or person on all 46 on the Gathering weekend. We would like to continue in this effort but also understand that there are those who would prefer alternate activities or hikes that day.
    For the interest of the group we will keep track of who is climbing what below and please if there is an interest in doing a non 46er or a ski, snowshoe as an alternative please post here so others who may be interested in joining may do so.
    Looking forward to having a great time as usual and seeing old friends, meeting new ones!

    And Yes to those paying attention this is the same list Kyler put together last year. Yeah I am “that” cut and paste kinda guy
    Here is a list of the 46 High Peaks divided into easy-medium-hard.

    To those who have claimed summits and to those who will be claiming summits over the next days and weeks:

    Please indicate by which trail-head and route you plan on doing your peak. This will help in the pooling of trail-breaking efforts if necessary.

    For example if you are doing RPR you might not want to go from New Russia after three feet of snow. You would want to contact the group leader for Giant and start out together from the trail-head so that you can alternate trail breakers all the way up the ridge trail.

    Or, if you plan on Nippletop you can organize with whomever is doing Dial and determine whether you are best to do them separately, travel as a team, or each do both peaks but in opposite directions.

    I will take Panther. I am going to try for all 3 but I will not commit to that. Furface may be joining me. What I would really like is to team up with whoever takes Couch and Santa and try for all 3 as a group. I am a moderate to a little slower than average hiker I think. I've done 15 winter peaks. I assume we will hike from Bradley Pond trailhead and go either clockwise or counterclockwise depending on conditions. Let me know if you want to team up and do the 3.

      How do you feel about the water crossings? Do you think they'll be frozen again on Saturday? Not a big fan of crossing on logs.

    I'll take Nippletop and Dial, heading up Elk Pass. Company? Maybe? Interested parties should message me.

      Maybe we'll see you while walking the first little bit on the lake road. We are heading up gothics first then working our way back

    Thanks for putting this together for yet another year, guys ! We are a group of 6 interested in MacNaughton (Oliver, Spike, Mayasoleil, Jean, Nathalie, Hiktrip - am I forgetting anyone ?)
    (Not all members of this forum, but all ADK enthusiasts !

    Not sure which way we'll do it yet (approach from the Loj/Wallface Ponds or from Upper Works)

        If you plan on staying at the ADK Inn please book your room right away. It will make things a lot easier.

            Spitfire and I will be heading to Allen.
            It would be nice to have company for trail breaking effort, if anyone is interested?

              My wife Susan and I were already thinking of Cliff and Redfield from Upper Works for that weekend.

                Hi there BrownBear! I just wanted to let you know that some of us are planning to do Redfield from the loj on Saturday ( some will also do Cliff). Looking forward to meeting you!

                Hey AlpineLamb and MtnManJohn! It would be great to run into you! Susan and I are planning on getting an early start from UpperWorks, and doing the whack up the back of Cliff, and then on to Redfield. We are pretty slow, esp. this winter, so we'll be getting an early start. REALLY looking forward to it and the Gathering. -Robert.

              I have a group of a few to several people and would like to choose Phelps Mtn for the winter gathering weekend.

                  I won't be able to go. Can't get the time off. Maybe, next year.
                  Nothing like being in the woods.

                    Bummer, right? I'm signed up for the Shamrock Run that day and can't bail on my team, plus we have tix for Bela Fleck that evening. Double Whammy. Crap timing I guess.

                  Wayald and I will take Giant/RPR and Big Slide for the day. See you at the gathering.
