BEONLINEWITHAMC: Beyond the 48 - the winter edition

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM

Contrary to what some people think, the hiking season doesn't end when there's snow on the ground. In fact, many people think it's actually just beginning. While climbing the 48 peaks in New Hampshire above 4,000 feet has become a popular winter pursuit, there are other high peak challenges both in New Hampshire and throughout the Northeast that someone can use for motivation. These include the Adirondack 46, the New England 67, the Northeast 115, and even the Trailwrights 72.

What would you do if someone challenged you to climb some White Mountain 4,000 foot peaks? All 48 of them? In a single month? How about for 12 months in a row? In less time than anyone else? Between August 23rd 2018 and July 7th 2019, Philip Carcia climbed all 48 4,000 footers in the White Mountains, in every month, for 12 consecutive months, establishing the "Fastest Known Time" for one of the most grueling and obscure peak-bagging projects in the Northeast - the Single Year Grid.
