This list of mountains — many of which are trailless — is made up of peaks in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. What follows is a short summary and some photos of her finishing trip on New Hampshire’s Scar Ridge (which for those […]

Tackling Nancy

In May of this year Redline Guide Ken Hodges guided a single guest, a fellow from Maine named Bob, on an attempt of Mt Nancy: a 3926-foot tall New Hampshire Peak found on the New England Hundred Highest list. A list Bob is working on, with our help. During that attempt the pair were slowed to a crawl thanks to spring conditions. Due to the constant […]

Wedding at the Mt Washington

Just a couple days after our last wedding, we find ourselves at another. This time officiating for a couple with their small contingent of family. They were staying at the opulent Mt Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods and, with the cooperation of the hotel, were welcome to celebrate their nuptials on the lovely manicured grounds — with a plan B to hold the ceremony on the […]

Huntington Ravine Wedding

Will you marry us on Mt Washington… at the top of the fan in Huntington Ravine? they asked. They had me at “will you marry us” and, yes, what a great place for a wedding. So grand and magnificent, and room for a thousand guests. Guests who won’t show up because they weren’t invited. Jake and Meredith didn’t want a crowd. They picked a weekday and […]

Packing Light vs Preparedness

It’s surprising what we can get away with… People get into trouble in the mountains for various reasons: groups split up, people get lost, weather overtakes folks, they suffer an injury, they get wet and cold, become hypothermic and stop thinking clearly, et cetera, et cetera. Suffering an injury is unavoidable. We can be very careful and take precautions, but accidents happen. The rest is obviously […]

Another Guide High Point

We enjoy telling folks about what our guides are up to when they’re not guiding or instructing a course. We can only share some. They are way too active for us to get into detailing the day-to-day runs, climbs, and hikes they do, even though many are surely noteworthy. The bigger stuff, however, we try to make the time for. As such, one on our guides, […]
