Starting Part Two

Sometimes our trips are pretty exciting. Pushing limits, battling weather, conquering fears — testing the waters, so to speak, on wicked rugged trails in the White Mountain National Forest. And some of our guests live for that sort of thing. Others, however, are perfectly content with a simple, relaxed day in the mountains with gorgeous weather bagging a couple of 4000-footers on the list. Nothing more, […]

Taking on the Osceolas

Located in the Sandwich Range — although not in the wilderness — are two NH 4000-footers going by the name of Mt Osceola and East Osceola, the elevations being 4340- and 4156-feet, respectively. The former offers delightful eastward-plus views from a rocky summit ledge of bare rock. They hiked up from Tripoli Road which links I-93 to Waterville Valley offering an alternative to Route 49, at […]

Ryan Goes Alpine

Winter Presidential Traverse

To turn a phrase: “The Ryan is Calling and You Must Go.” Meaning Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire really wants to get people stoked for single- and multi-day Northern, Southern, and Classic Presidential Traverses this winter. The “Classic” being Mt Madison through to Mt Pierce. If he has his way, the Post Office will start delivering his mail to Edmand’s Col or the summit of Mt Washington. […]

Southern Belles on MW

When we got the call the person on the other end of the line asked us an honest and simple question: “We’re experienced hikers, do we really need a guide on Mt Washington?” Our reply was that sometimes you and sometimes you don’t, most of the time people can get away without one. It’s not a sales pitch, obviously, and it is quite true. We told […]

Jefferson Ravine, Part 2

When we were first hired to lead an exploration into Jefferson Ravine we tried to take it on from the west side hiking up and over the ridge though skirting around Mt Jefferson, but that trip came up short. We tried but connecting talus top to bottom, and while almost actually possible, at the very end it ended up being a no-go. The team enjoyed the […]

A Walk in the Woods

Sometimes when you don’t get everything you wanted, you still get exactly what you needed. Most of the time our guests learn a lot from our guides, and not just during the classes we offer, but even on our hikes. Every once in a while, however, it comes right back at us. One guest didn’t complete her hike because she wasn’t feeling it — and we […]

95/100… Vermont is Done

A many-time returning guest who has been seeking our companionship for a few years now as he whittles away at his New England Hundred Highest (NEHH) peaks has done it again. This time it was in Vermont. He crossed the 3839′ Mendon Peak off his list, specifically. This leaves him at 95 out of 100. Five left to go, all in Maine now. (Stay tuned for […]

One South, One North

October 24th added at least three more couples to the roster of those who count themselves among the married folk. One of those three couples was seen on the way to one of our weddings. Purely coincidental — we just had to mention it. The other two weddings we officiated. Or, rather, our Justice of the Peace (JP), Mike Cherim did. Here are a few details… […]

Like Outward Bound

[…] our conversations waxed poetic as we explored some of the history of humans in the White Mountains […] This is a continuation of a prior trip report. The end-goal was to have an Outward Bound-esque experience for a father and son. Taking over lead from Ryan with with this warmed-up team was Redline Guide Nico Dubois — this program is his brainchild so do contact […]

Spruce Mountain Exploration

After being self-employed for almost thirty years of his life, you’d think Redline Guide Mike Cherim would be an accounting whiz. You’d think. Fact is he didn’t know anything. Fortunately a many-time returning guest, an actual accountant, knew of Mike’s disability and offered to show him the financial ropes, all in exchange for some hike time. Deal. Mike now understands a little more than he used […]
