The The Catskill 3500 Footers

P

eakbaggers like to climb peaks. In fact some would say they are obsessed with climbing peaks! And most hikers and climbers who call themselves "peakbaggers" endevour to climb certain lists of peaks, such as all those above a certain elevation in some region. If you follow some of the accounts below you'll get the idea.

This, page is one of those lists into which I have linked reports of my own climbs and hikes and I have included links to location information for others who may be interested.

This list is published by The Catskill 3500 Club which is dedicated to the climbing of all 35 peaks in the Catskill Mountains over 3500 feet. The club is also actively involved in conservation issues as they relate to the Catskill Mountains.

Peaks on the list are listed in order of elevation, irrespective of when I climbed them (or even if I haven't yet climbed them). I hope you like this layout and maybe it will inspire a few others to get out there and climb a mountain! Climb two! Climb 35!

As always comments and suggestions are welcome. Just click here to send me a note.
