    White Mountain Direttissima

    From July 4-17 I finally got around to completing my version of the Direttissima, climbing all the NH 4000 footers in a continuous line. Following Rev. Henry T. Folsom's lead, I tackled the Direttissima as a series of dayhikes carrying a light pack. I hiked 10 days and took 4 days off.

    For those who are interested, I have written a rather lengthy report over on my blog:

    It was great fun.
