    Jason Beaupre completes NEHH grid

    Jason Beaupre finished the New England Hundred Highest grid last weekend. First known person ever to do it.

    1,200 mountains!

    I believe I have hiked with Jason only once. A mutual friend was finishing his Hundred Highest on Kate Sleeper. We went over the Tripyramids, and then over to Kate Sleeper. After a small celebration, Jason took off to hike over Whiteface and Passaconaway. As the rest of us were hiking out, back down to the Kanc, we passed some people coming the other way, and inquired whether they had seen him. "We saw the blur as he blew past us," was something close to the reply.

    We went to Moat, Jason climbed something else that evening.

    The next morning, the rest of us went out for a relatively late breakfast, and by the time we had finished, Jason had texted someone he was already off the Hancocks.

    He would have finished in 2021 except the one day you can be in BSP in April, 2021 was miserable and he had to bail.

    I know what they did at least once between two winter months (since a friend doing the same thing bumped into them) was to go into Baxter near the end of the month and get up all the peaks in that month. Then, they stayed there and the following day the next month started, and they went up all the peaks again, this time up trails they packed down.

    If one has the vacation time, it's an efficient way to get a bunch of mountains ticked off in two months.

    Wow, amazing achievement. Seems like the Maine six pack would be even harder than Baxter.

    Kudos to this team.

    Me and Shay met him on Mt. Liberty a few months ago. Super nice guy and boy can he move. Congratulations on a very tough accomplishment.

    Joined him descending Scar Ridge, he was really fun to be with and waited below in the parking lot with beers.

    Congratulations.
