    I wanted to share my experience with these. I have owned a pair of 30" Northern Lites Backcountry Elites for six years now. They have treated me extremely well. The bindings work fine. A few of the...

    Does it matter how many hikers have completed the list? I'd guess 20 or so, but not because the list is especially difficult or due to the remoteness of peaks - mostly because it is a more...

    I have experience with this route in both directions. There is a well-formed herdpath going from Carrigain notch up to Vose Spur. This route is practically a trail, and you'll find it easily enough...

    I have been in to Corbin Park to hike Croydon twice. There is no way around the $50 fee. I know a number of other people that have hiked it, and almost everyone agrees that it is worth the fee. They...

    Ah, thank you for re-clarifying. I was fairly certain that the NE ridge was posted as private property, but I didn't want to come out and accuse you of that here. I think I found a different...

    5:19 is indeed the FKT for all of the Belknap Range listed peaks.

    At least one group has still done it faster, but they chose not to publicize it - hence their time is classified as a "FUKT":...

    Could you explain this route again? I was just up in that area climbing Plattekill yesterday and I don't see where a southern ridge on Meeker Hollow Mtn leads to Rose's Brook or Rose Brook Rd.

    Use a compass bearing of 254 degrees. (Just kidding.)

    You really can't make assumptions on where the going will be easier based on what side of the mountain you are on. There are tons of factors that go into it, such as:

    Roy is correct on the first part. Bruce still owns the cabin and a parcel of land high up on the ridge, but his health had been failing as of 2 or 3 years ago and I'm not sure if he's still with us....

    The "6 pack region" is generally known as the area NW of Stratton where there are 6 peaks below 4,000' on the NEHH list. While there may be six 4,000'ers...
