    Made the false summit mistake my first time up there too. I'm always impressed when someone who is too far away to make day trips from home gets their list. Cabot wasn't my 48th on my first circuit but it is a special mountain to me. I woke up in the Cabin on Cabot every January 1st for 10 years in a row 1/1/2001 - 1/1/2010. Not very good grid progress when you hike the mountain on the same day every year

    Hoping to have that finished in a few weeks. I have been working on it since 03' with a friend.

    After the 46' in the ADK in a few weeks I plan to climb the 13 left in Maine within the next several years (I have Katahdin only here). I will have 102/115 (NE 111+fallen four in dax) so obviously I want to finish that. I am slowly picking at the state HPs and have about a dozen or so Sixers in the South. The CO 14'ers is definately something I will take a strike at if I live in CO, which is a possibility in the coming years. I may simply enjoy a lot of random hikes/climbs. Geographic spread is important to me and like like feeling in the gaps and holes of places I have not set foot. I frequently explore the high country in WV, one of my favorite places to go for a hike as well.

When I did South I simply came up the route that goes from The Basin up over Kinsman Falls, and yes over North again.

    Middle Carter is similar. I did it back in October 2005 acceding via the col between North and Middle Carter. I was just not feeling well that day. My usual hiking buddy was not with me and I left it for later, getting it in a rainstrorm with Carter Dome.
    Haha - that's awesome! That's a fun way to knock them out - I figured there would be some memorable stories as to why.

    And 12 years isn't too bad. It look me 13 I believe, from Waumbec to Madison. Congrats on finishing - it is a pretty cool feeling.

    It's a common misconception that the discrepancy between 111 (name of patch) and 115 (number of peaks) is due to the four sub-4Ks in the ADK46. In fact, it has nothing to do with the Dacks; it's due to the addition of four peaks in New England (Galehead, Bondcliff, Redington, and Spaulding) since the list was first invented.
