    Typical Tom/Field/Willey Report 9/22/12

    Kevin, Judy& Emma, Thanks so much for allowing me to join you on a real nice day up there. It is true, I did just plan to head up to Avalon or the most Field. But it didn't take much to convince me to keep going. Pleasant day and even more pleasant was the company! I'm guessing Emma did...

    Scar Ridge, Middle Peak 2/4/12

    That's a pic Becca of the in your face stuff that you had to somehow crawl through to get up the cone. You couldn't go over it and you couldn't go under cause the snow was actually too deep under, you had to break through the crust on the branches. It was the hardest so far! Going up the...

    Scar Ridge, Middle Peak 2/4/12

    Pucknuts & I planned to hit both Middle & East Peaks. We've both been warned about the "Ridge" but I found West, last year, nothing to write home about, as far as steep & thick. We started a bit late, but that's not rare, as we don't mind headlamps! We headed up from 112 and right away hit the...

    Oh....that's electrifying!!! I was down the Cape off season once, and just for giggles went from sauna, as long as I could stand it, then to the pool 3 times (sorry, that wasn't ice water then) but I was so charged, ..much later I looked at the clock and it was about 6:30 AM and said...

    Pierce, Eisenhower & Monroe 3-19-10

    Crawford Path from lot off 302 to Cog lot down parts of the Ammonoosuc Ravine Tr. Most of the trails required snowshoes excluding the north side of Eisenhower & down the "Gully" to the right of the Ammo Tr. as you descend. Best with crampons down the gully. Some areas along the way were bare...

    Hale, South Hale, Zealand, Guyot and the Bonds

    Hey Albee, Thanks much for sharing!! Nice trip. I was looking at the back side of Hale this winter on the way to the Twins and thinking..boy, that looks like a much nicer way to Hale than the regular winter route. And S. Hale would be on the plate with Zealand as a maybe. You really went the...

    Bonds trip from hell, March 12, Winter peaks 46 & 47

    Hey Mark, CONGRATS on your completion!! Hope the eye is ok. You may want to check that puppy out anyway. Don't mess with your eyes. I took one in the eye on the way to Mt. Kanc. & it left a crater like divot in the white area. Ended up ok, but was able to run the symptoms by my brother, an...
