About this blog

Project-100 is a fund-raising project put on by the ADK High Peaks Foundation.  I am a founding member The Foundation and will attempt to summit each of the peaks from the ADK Hundred Highest list between December 21, 2017 and March 21, 2018.  It is noteworthy that approximately 40 of the peaks are untrailed.  However, if I haven’t finished by that date I will continue until the list is complete.

It was easy to get warm and before long I had removed clothing, opened my jacket etc. The Calkins truck road had about 4 inches of fluffy pow

3 Days of Hiking

Day One Sentinel (and not Kilburn) After leaving my vehicle at Monument Falls Luc La Barre and I parked his on Bartlett Road, where Liscombe brk. crosses. We angled away from the brook and worked our way up through open hardwoods to a ridge that parallels the drainage. This beautiful, rolling ridge is covered in huge, sparsley distributed pines and hemlocks and runs from the Cobbles to the eastern flanks of Sentinel, into which it merges at 2500'. Gradually the landscape turned to white and
