Thankful for You

Today is Thanksgiving. While we’re always grateful for those who allow us to exist — mainly our incredible guests and are awesome guides (though there are others) — it’s important to let you know, especially on a day in which giving thanks is in its name, that we acknowledge you and are in fact grateful. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Have a safe and enjoyable holiday. The […]

Cool Gift: Sweet 16 Hike

We’re not pushing gift certificates — though count on us mentioning it soon. The cool gift in this case — a hike in the White Mountains — was the brainchild of the birthday girl, now age 16. Let’s back up a little and all this will make a little more sense. It’s your birthday, you can hike if you want to… It’s about a week out […]

Training for Spicy Hikes

Based on the requirements and objectives given, and also coupled with backstory about a recent slide ascent and its affect on the mind, we had a guest that needed a custom-fit adventure. Redline Guide Mike Maciel took the initial call — he becoming known for leading handfuls of hikers into some cool, extra spicy places — and turned the focus toward the area of King Ravine […]

The Middle One

There are three “Carters” not including a mountain called “Carter Dome.” The northern-most Carter is aptly named “North Carter.” The southern-most one is also appropriately named as we refer to it as “South Carter.” Now that you know this, dear reader, would you care to use your imagination and guess at what the Carter in the middle is called? Well, regardless of what it’s called (there […]

48 on Flume

A good year for finishers! A returning guest who had been using our services, specifically hiking with Redline Guide Phoebe Seltzer, finally grabbed her final New Hampshire 4000-Footer for that list: Specifically, she bagged 4329′ Mt Flume on an amazing day in the White Mountain National Forest. Phoebe took some photos and shot some video of the actual finish. We put it all together in this […]

4000-Footers List Update

A little while ago the Appalachian Mountain Club published the 31st Edition of the AMC’s White Mountain Guide Book. There was talk of modifying the list now that GPS technology continually improves and LIDAR allows us to “see” like never before, but thankfully for peakbaggers, it did stay the same. Well, mostly. The 48 mountains listed remains the same, even though one of them, Tecumseh (grandfathered), […]

Late Oct on Mt Washington

Skirting the season, just past foliage peak, Redline Guide Howard Aronson led two young men on a trip up the Ammo to Crawford Path and the summit of Mt Washington, then down the mountain along the Cog. It was a Plan B option to Plan A’s Jewell Trail. The team enjoyed an amazing day (just look at the photos), summer Ready Packs still use on this […]

Scar Ridge Shakedown

With a name that has “Scar” in it you just know it’s bad. You just know it’s going to leave a mark. If not on your body, it’ll quite possibly leave its impression on your mind or soul. As one of the only New England Hundred Highest peaks that still requires the hiker to actually bushwhack — instead of following a “herd” path made by the […]

Welcome Back, Moriah’s Up

She was here one minute, chipping away at her list, then the next minute she was gone. At least temporarily. Real life once again took over. But only for a while. She had hiked with Redline Guide Mike Maciel many times so when she was ready to step back into the ring, she messaged him and the wheels were set into motion. The result: Well, number […]
