    New England 100 most prominent list

    Presently working on the 770(777) list and while doing so decided to also do the following sub lists:
    1. New England 50 finest which I completed on Smarts(NH) in 2006 on 11th Nov.
    2. Northeast USA 50 finest which I completed on Black (NY) in 2009 on 18th May

    Would now like to pursue those lists up to the 100 most prominent peaks (lists here posted). BTW has anyone completed those lists besides Roy Schweiker for the NE 100 finest (actually he completed the top 150) and Roy, John Thompson, Bob Packard & myself for the Northeast 50 finest? No one has done to my knowledge the Northeast 100 yet, so the race is on!

    An interesting list. I climbed Ragged in Andover, NH (#96) just a couple of weeks ago, taking the trouble (slight) to locate and stand on the high-point - x2286. I had no idea Ragged was on any list, however, except perhaps the NH2Ks (if anyone has compiled those).

    By a striking coincidence, a close friend suggested to me just this morning a possible visit this summer to Bald Mt. in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom - #56. I didn't really need another reason to agree, but have one anyway.

    I have climbed more than half of the 100, but I'm not so close I'm going to rush out for the rest of them.

    Very interesting. I've done at least 57, from a quick inventory. I'll put it on the "worthy goal" list.
