    The Delaware Water Gap area (about an hour and a half east of McAdoo) offers good views, especially from Mt Tammany and Mt Minsi. A dense network of trails including the AT helps to handle the...

    I'm not a fan of prepacked meals (e.g. Mountain House) - every one I try is too salty, and most are too small.

    For an extended hike in Alaska (bear cans mandatory) I made a spreadsheet of...

    re WolfJaw-Armstrong-Gothic: these peaks are close to each other in distance but the cols in the Great Range can be brutal. You drop about 500' between the two wolf jaws - it's similar in height...

    How about Giant Mountain, near St Huberts? The route from Chapel Pond is a little more short-and-steep than your examples, but the Roaring Brook route (Roaring Falls trailhead) should be right up...

    I happened to be in Lake Placid with some spare time, so I confirmed today that there is a well-maintained, well-marked ski/snowmobile trail from the big dirt lot on Wesvalley Rd, that leads directly...

    Here is the map from LRCT, scaled up:

    6203

    The new easement indeed connects the (LRCT-owned) summits of Larcom and Little Larcom to the Ossipee Mountains preserve. I would be pretty surprised...

    Ah, good. I was wondering why VFTT's search function didn't return any useful results.

    On the plus side, searching for "Bale" inexplicably turned up a surprisingly enjoyable old thread about...

    New article says he bought a new coat, new boots, and two "ice picks" the same day he headed up the mountain solo. That's... better than not having a coat and boots, but it gives me no confidence...

    "Braiding", where streams continually cross and recross, happens all the time. You can see some incipient examples just downslope on your map, and tons of it on multiple scales in any flattish river...

    I feel bad for anybody who cleared their schedule for a one-season 48 this winter. On the other hand, if you're able to snipe the good days there have been some beauts. Saturday was about as...

    He was in Central Gully, and slipped when about 300 feet above the bottom. Usually that's a snow climb with one "bulge" of ice. He may have been carrying a small second "axe" (likely a technical...

    Note that Denali park has a rather strict management system. You can do day hikes without any paperwork (starting from anywhere along the road - bus drivers will drop you off), but overnight trips...

    TLDR: the magnetic pole is much closer to the rotational pole than it was when I was born, or when most of my paper maps were printed. Sloppy navigators like me are now even more justified in...

    I've hiked those in winter. I don't think I even wore snowshoes - the trails were packed down by others before me.

    The tough ones would be in places like the Mahoosucs, where the roads are only...

    I think this one: 17 hours before unplanned bivy, then a couple hours sleep and another hour or so of walking before getting a ride.

    I believe Dudley is "closed in summer" but open for winter travel.

    Self-adhesive bandage wrap costs about $5 per roll, makes a fine sock with a little practice (wrap in a figure 8 around your ankle), wrap it as tight as you like and put a regular sock over it.

    Not any kind of cat - it's possible to see a claw mark if the cat is afraid of losing its grip, but that's quite rare, and anyway those look like canid tracks, both the claw marks and the overall...
