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.

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 […]

Mt Baker in 2020

Get Some: Climb Mt Baker via the Easton Glacier with Redline Guiding Many of our guests have learned glacier and mountaineering skills with us over the years, but aside from leading them on non-technical hiking and semi-technical mountaineering routes on Mt Washington, the Northern Presidentials, Kahtadin, and other similar locations, we haven’t as of yet offered an outlet to put those skills to further use here […]

Three Years, Four Inches

We turned three today, going into our fourth year of business […] In a previous life, under the name of a different company, and more than a decade past, a vertical stack of four inches of paper was “used” every two weeks or so. The company was pro-environmental by its very nature — living organisms were sold as biological pest control agents — and at the […]

She then went on to complete a Direttissima (hiking all 48 4000-footers […]
