    My prediction after the last list completion (a couple weeks ago??) was he'd be spending a good bit of time in NY, silly me! Again, congrats Pierre. That (at least to me) is the most coveted, and extremely well earned patch in the Northeast. A list of legends to be sure.

    Jim (or Sue :-) ) , did Sue finish on the VT or NH Monadnock? Strikes me as really neat that two people would both finish the NE3k and NEng3k on the same peak.

    Also, Dennis, would you mind sharing the finishers list?

    Sue finished on Monadnock in NH. Also, Erik finished on the former fire tower peak, Tumbledown, in the Beaudry Road area of Maine.

    On my way there... just got back from a week in Maine and I'm currently at 705.
    I was at Pinpin's finish and I remember being at 265 back then.

    The North East 3,000 footers in fact have only 740 qualifying peaks according to recent 7,5 minute maps.

    However for historical reasons and/or tradition I suspect people will want to continue climbing the 770 peaks. However those that don't climb the 2 qualifying peaks omitted by Swanson in his list (SW Brown Pond-3160 and E Snowy-3179) in my mind have not really completed the North East 3K's. Obviously that only applies to peakbaggers after the arrival of the 7,5 min. maps.

    Finally as Jean-Sébastien Roux pointed out the North East 3K list will once again evolve in the near future when satellite data becomes readily available (LIDAR, with 30 cm precision for peak elevations and cols). WOW!

    And what about the advent of exoskeletons to assist humans in climbing peaks. After all folks have not turned their backs on technology, having widely adopted GPS assisted navigation. Time only will tell, but I will then be long gone my friends.

    Oncoman, I recall reading (ADK High Peaks forum) that you have completed all the NY 3000s .... in winter? Also, on a revisit of 11th Mtn with Sonny, we found burnt ashes on the summit from someone who apparently started a fire in the snow, perhaps to warm up. There was no burned spot on the ground so we figured it was from a winter visit.

    you have completed all the NY 3000s .... in winter?. No, only the 222 ADK 3K's in winter. Actually was also my second round of ADK 3K's.

    was from a winter visit. No, was not me.

    Wow! The ADK 3000s are tough enough to do in ANY season, and many are incredibly hard to access. You may be the first to do these in winter .... with a lot of camping out, I'll bet.
