2020 Rockhopper-Redline WFAs

Again, for those who don’t know them, they’re the ones bringing professionally-organized mountain racing to the White Mountain National Forest. The effort we’re cooperating on is to bring a couple of […]

Starlight Snowshoe Hike

Trying something different, we have decided to offer a low-cost starlight snowshoe hike on December 26th, 2019 — date of December’s new moon. Get to know us a little better and join us for a fun time. This will not be a high intensity, or high speed hike. We will, in fact, probably keep it simple marking the 2800′ Mt Willard summit ledges as our goal […]

Near Winter Mt Jackson

[…] views are secondary, hiking the Whites is sublime. Our returning guest, a former student, wanted a 4000-footer, something on her list — after all, she is working on hiking the 48 recognized 4000-footers in NH. She also wanted to keep the mileage down being that this would be a full-on winter hike during full-on winter conditions, and a winter shakedown hike at that. Given this, […]

Our Winter Season Begins

This weekend sort of started the ball rolling for us, so to speak. It began Saturday with a Winter Skills course followed by a Mountaineering Skills course. And this was followed the next day with a successful ascent of Mt Washington — the tallest most badass peak in the Northeast and the crown jewel of the White Mountain National Forest. Atypical of its badassness, however, the […]

Adventure as a Gift

Back in the day, the last century, people wanted stuff for the holidays. Big piles of expensive, opulent stuff. Stuff that quickly broke or became lost. Stuff that people lost interest in or ended up forgetting all about. People were into stuff. This isn’t the case nowadays. Today people crave experiences. Unlike stuff that fades in time, experiences stick with us. They help us learn and […]

You’ve seen the photos others have posted online or read materials on the subject.

Chasing Bear in Vermont

“The bears were really active. We followed one up the mountain the entire way, then again on our way down. Probably the same bear — maybe peak-bagging. We never laid eyes on him but we knew he was very close. And likewise to be sure.” This was reported to us by Redline Guide Ken Hodges. Ken was in Vermont guiding a returning guest who opts for […]

Wintery on Washington

In the Valley the leaves have mostly dropped. For days there has been frost on surfaces in the morning. We had a dusting of snow the other day which remains in shady places. The seasons are changing. Here in the Mount Washington Valley, it’s clear winter is stepping up ready to take Autumn’s place. That’s here in the Valley. And from here in the Valley, one […]

Thorn Mountain Bushwhack

With water levels too high to comfortably execute their Plan A, the team’s hope of exploring the ledges of Popple Mountain would have to wait. And, thus a Plan B was formed. Redline Guide Mike Cherim motioned with a thumb over his left shoulder toward the lovely Jackson, NH, and suggested another local “trailless” peak: Thorn Mountain. It was back to the drawing board for our […]

Mike M Earns a WFR

Newest Redline Guide Mike Maciel has been very hard at work as he develops as a mountain guide with Redline Guiding (not just a porter). This development happens in bits and pieces over time, with experience giving context. One of the major bits one needs to overcome is the required medical training. Specifically Mike earned the coveted Wilderness First Responder (WFR) patch from SOLO. For those […]
