Performance T-shirts Available

We now have a few Redline Guiding performance t-shirts available for those who love the color red and want to flash our brand, so to speak — there’s a logo over the left breast. The shirts are Ultra Club’s “Cool and Dry” series and they fit and feel great. No cotton here because, well, you don’t want to be caught dead in one of those things. […]

Another Guide Makes the Grade

Congratulations to Redline Guiding Mountain Guide Ryan Welts for completing his schooling and earning his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification. Since protecting our guests and others we may lead by being ready to meet their basic emergency medical needs in the mountains is critically important (and a requirement before leading), we are extremely pleased to be able to make this announcement. The schooling is tough but […]

Wet Knots Never Untie

Way back in December of 2016 a plan for an outdoor wedding atop Cathedral Ledge was formed. We were officiating the nuptials — owner Mike Cherim is a JP — and providing photographic services. This was to include an early morning, heavily alpenglowy pre-wedding shoot at the ledge, a friends and family preparation series in the early afternoon in their rentals at the lovely Nordic Village, […]

How to Make a Tick Trap

In a previous life, long before Redline Guiding, owner Mike Cherim owned and operated a national commercial mailorder company he founded in 1992, that went by the brand name Green Methods (long sold, though still exists, now owned by another firm). Green Methods sold good bugs that ate (or parasitized) bad bugs — to be used for pest control purposes, instead of nasty pesticides. This gave […]

Six-and-a-Half Months In

The original name of this article used to be “Six Months In” but being busy forced us to shelve it for a couple of weeks until we had more time. Thus the title now corrects the timeline. Officially launched in mid-October of 2016, we’re about six-and-a-half months old, our first full season — winter — behind us. So how are we doing, you might wonder. Well, […]

Through the Eyes of Gignoux

“On assignment” describes the undercurrent of today’s half day adventure. Contracted by Alan Gignoux of London, descendent of an 1800s artist who worked in oils, RĂ©gis Gignoux, and his friend Jenny, we were to locate a probable location from which the painting (inset, click to enlarge view) was visualized and sketched. The only problem is that the exact view doesn’t actually exist. It was thought that […]

Hiking the 48 4000-Footers of NH

For many people, hiking is a three-season pursuit. If this is you, your time to shine is starting soon (time to get in shape). Many folks — some call themselves “peakbaggers” — will begin or continue working on their “lists.” Here in New Hampshire that more-than-likely means the 48 4000-footers as identified by the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) (see updates). There are other lists, the New […]

Staying Dry

Bearing in mind, that staying dry is virtually impossible over time […] Some will argue that getting wet isn’t a problem for them. They will charge right through streams without regard for their feet, knowing their trail runners will get somewhat “dry” pretty quickly. Others have similar regard for the rain: “In the last 50 minutes of a “Presi traverse” I allowed myself to get soaking […]

Spring Time for Glacier Prep

The next few weeks are prime time for roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue training. The sun is higher in the sky for that glacier frying pan feel, and large, safe practice “glaciers” are available for training purposes. We just created this course this winter and we’ve been pleasantly surprised on how popular it has been and how much fun it is — both for us […]

Dangerous Separation

Being involved with mountain search and rescue, we have noted some common ground of many misadventures in the White Mountain National Forest. Based purely on our own observations, it seems that those who get lost, become hypothermic, even those who perish, often found themselves in their predicament and unable to help themselves as a result of either being separated from their group or by simply going […]

A Permit to Hike… Finally

CONCORD, NH — Good news, maybe, depending on your point-of-view. From here on out inadequate search and rescue budgets be damned, negative environmental impacts a thing of the past, and those oh-so-hated summit crowds now nevermore. Why? A new federally-issued “New Hampshire Backcountry Permit” — slated to go into effect as early as the spring of 2018 — looks to end these and other user-related problems […]
