    Here's what Hey, what's that? has to 'say' about the views.

    From the original Catskill 3500 Club bylaws:

    1. There must be at least a 250 foot drop between the peak and any other peak on the list, or
    2. The peak must be at least 1/2 mile away from any...

    As you can see from my previous post, I did not forget about the Catskills. Perish the thought!

    No the 46ers don't technically care about the 2 Catskill peaks, but if you ask some 46ers, they would say the ADKs have 46 4000' peaks. (Of course many know that is not the case). Thus 2 more in the...

    If you want some more irony, there are 48 4Ks in NY, (at least according to the 46ers). :p

    Ok, it's a game. But it's a game where the rules changed. That's what I don't like. There used to be very specific rules.

    Now instead of data, we have emotion. At least, if the list is the list,...

    I find it odd that the more data we have about the peaks, the less we use it.

    The 4K committee and the Catskill 3500 Club now both ignore data that clearly shows that their lists need to be...

    The few times I have been there, (aside from winter), cars and trains accounted for the majority of the people present. I can't see how they could limit hiker traffic, given all the routes up the...

    7 inches of very heavy wet snow here in the Western Cats. Probably less as one goes east, but I have no confirmation of that yet. I do know that 0 snow fell in Kingston, NY.

    It's a lot easier to help someone down a trail who twisted their ankle, in pleasant weather, than find someone who is off trail in a blizzard.
