Papa Bear's Peakbagging Lists

     
 
 

The New England Hundred Highest Peaks

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 a committee saponsored by the AMC (See the Four Thousand Footer Club). The AMC has long published lists of the peaks 4000' or more in elevation in the White Mountains (of which there are 48) and in New England (of which there are 67) and the Hundred Highest, you might say, is for those who haven't had enough after completing the 4000 footers. And to make things more challenging, some folks have done this list in the winter, or even in each calander month! Of course you could do the 200 highest, or 500 highest, ad infinitum, but I'll see how I feel after the top 100, thank you!

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). For example I climbed the first five peaks on the list in 2002 and 2003, but I climbed #6 (Katahdin) way back in 1963! 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 a hundred!

As of October 9th, 2005, I have climbed all the peaks on this list.

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