    52 with no View

    If we were to make a list of the best 52 with no View (which is an odd concept, mostly this is stemming from bar talk), what would be on it?

    1. Zealand
    2. Owlshead
    3. The Horn
    4. Bulge
    5. Weeks
    6. Hale

    Hi B the H,

    Great initiative! Can't contribute right now, but please remove The Horn. There 3 years ago, beautiful open views abound to the south abound. Check out hillmap.com or your favorite sat images to confirm. Thanks!

    I also think the Horn has nice views.

    How do you even start to define "best"?

    That’s just about all of them if you show up on the right day. Yep...sounds like A Bar.

    You're asking for a lot of thought on this one, Mohamed! I would say, what mountains are fun to climb, despite the lack of views. (Again, this was more bar talk than anything else)

    In looking at past WMGs, that view has been maintained for a long time. Perhaps the individual or group that maintains the bench on the subpeak knows about it?
