Four Thousand Footers I Have Climbed
A Chronological List


MountainHeightDateComments
Mt. Washington62884/28/91Actually, this was the second of three ascents; I don't remember the date of the first. This ascent was part of a three-day spring backpacking trip with Phill, my hiking partner. It was done without appropriate clothing or equipment, and we were lucky.
Mt. Hancock44037/4/91Part of a three-day backpacking trip with my wife Elisa and my sons, Matt & Adam. Both this peak and the one below are treed on the summit, and offer little opportunity for views.
South Hancock42747/4/91Hiked same day as Mt. Hancock, above.
Mt. Monroe53848/25/94Day hike with Joe DiFranza, including summiting Mt. Washington for the 3rd time.
Mt. Jefferson57129/25/94Solo 3-day backpacking trip in the fall of 1994; summited all three northern presidentials on the same day. Visibility along the ridgeline was usually less than 50 feet, weather was extremely marginal.
Mt. Adams57749/25/94Summited same day as Mt. Jefferson, above.
Mt. Madison53679/25/94Summited same day as Mt. Jefferson and Mt. Adams, above
Mt. Moosilauke480210/11/94Summitted on a day hike with my wife, Elisa.
Mt. Osceola434010/14/94Dayhiked Osceola and East Osceola with my son Adam; the out & back hike required summiting the higher peak (Osceola) twice.
East Osceola415610/14/94Summited same day as Mt. Osceola above.
Mt. Lincoln508910/29/94Summited this peak and Mt. Lafayette on a day hike with Phill; the weather was spectacular.

Mt. Liberty44598/7/95Summited same day as Mt. Flume above.
Mt. Tecumseh40039/12/95Solo day hike, trail was nonexistant, ended up hiking up ski slopes; saw adult and adolescent Moose during ascent.
North Kinsman42939/18/95Solo day hike from east side, weather clear, nice view of Franconia Ridge from summit.
South Kinsman43589/18/95Summited same day as North Kinsman, above
Mt. Garfield45005/22/96Solo dayhike, Mt. Garfield Trail, trying to grab the gap between snow & blackflies, can't be done (had both). Car broken in to.
Galehead40247/2/96Three-day hike which included summiting five other 4,000 footers, all listed below. A great hike with sometimes marginal weather.
South Twin49027/3/96The first summit reached on day two of the hike described in the Galehead entry above. The high point (altitude-wise) of our hike.The view from the summit is breathtaking.
Zealand42607/3/96The second summit reached on day two of the hike described in the Galehead entry above. The summit is treed, and offers no decent view.
West Bond45407/4/96The first summit reached on day three of the hike described in the Galehead entry above.
Bond46987/4/96The second summit reached on day three of the hike described in the Galehead entry above. Great view from top and all along ridgeline between Bond and Bondcliff
Bondcliff42657/4/96The third summit reached on day three of the hike described in the Galehead entry above. Bondcliff has some incredible views, as well as some great cliffs. Best area of hike, even though iffy weather decreased visibility somewhat.
Mt. Jackson40529/7/96An early fall, overnight weekend backpacking trip with Phill and Adam. The weather was great on day one, but the edge of the remnants of Hurricane Fran made day two a windy, wet, low visibility mess. Summitted four 4,000 footers on this trip, including Mt. Monroe, which I have summitted before.
Mt. Pierce (Clinton)43109/8/96The second summit reached on the overnight hike described in the Mt. Jackson entry above.
Mt. Eisenhower47619/8/96The third summit reached on the overnight hike described in the Mt. Jackson entry above.
Mt. Moriah404910/6/96The first summit of four reached on a solo hiking trip over a spectacular fall weekend in October.
Middle Carter461010/7/96The second summit reached on the overnight hike described in the Mt. Moriah entry above.
South Carter443010/7/96The third summit reached on the overnight hike described in the Mt. Moriah entry above.
Carter Dome483210/7/96The fourth summit reached on the overnight hike described in the Mt. Moriah entry above.
Mt. Passaconaway406010/11/97The first summit of an overnight hike over Columbus Day weekend. The weather was perhaps the best I've ever experienced while backpacking in the White Mountains. Also summited Mt. Whiteface, Middle Tripyramid, and North Tripyramid.
Mt. Whiteface401010/11/97The second summit reached on the first day of the overnight hike described in the Mt. Passaconaway entry above.
Middle Tripyramid411010/12/97The first summit reached on the second day of the hike described in the Mt. Passaconaway entry above.
North Tripyramid414010/12/97The second summit reached on the second day of the hike described in the Mt. Passaconaway entry above.
Mt. Tom404710/22/97The first summit reached on a mid-week solo dayhike in late October of 1997. It snowed throughout the day, and at higher elevations, the snow accumulated to a depth of 1-2 inches. The trails were relatively empty (I only passed two groups of two hikers all day), and the hike was quite pleasant. Despite the weather, I ran into two fat Canadian Jays on the way down from the summit of Mt. Tom.
Mt. Field432610/22/97The second summit reached on the hike described in the Mt. Tom entry above. On the way down Mt. Field (travelling south on the Willey Range Trail), I stopped and watched a woodpecker at work on a large tree trunk a few yards off trail.
Mt. Willey430210/22/97The third summit reached on the hike described in the Mt. Tom entry above.
Mt. Carrigain46808/23/98Overnighter with my two sons. We did a loop hike of Mt. Carrigain via a portion of Signal Ridge Trail, then Carrigain Notch Trail, Desolation Trail, and back on Signal Ridge Trail. The view from the observation deck on the summit of Carrigain was spectacular.
Wildcat D40509/29/98An early fall dayhike over the Wildcats via Wildcat Ridge Trail and Nineteen Mile Brook Trail. The weather was perfect (I took a Tuesday off from work based on a good weather report), but the trail was a real butt buster.
Wildcat44229/29/98The second summit reached on the dayhike described in the Wildcat D entry above.
Mt. Isolation400510/4/98An overnighter with Phil, my hiking partner. We summitted Mt. Isolation in time to catch sunrise, and were able to watch the eastern slope of Mt. Washington turn pink as the snow on its upper reaches reflected the morning sunlight.
North Twin476112/7/98The night before, the weather forecast for Boston was for temperatures in excess of 70 degrees. I decided to head north for a late, late fall attempt at summitting North Twin. As recommended, I bushwacked along the stream to avoid the first two crossings. The third crossing was the most difficult I have encountered. I started seeing snow at around 2,500 feet, and by the time I reached 4,000 feet, I was basically post-holing. The summit was clouded over, with no views, and by the time I got back down to my car, I was hiking in darkness.
Mt. Hale40549/11/99My wife accompanied me on this outing, a dayhike along Hale Brook Trail to the summit of Mt. Hale. The weather was everything a September hiker could ask for: blue skies, crisp air, and comfortable temperatures.
Mt. Cabot41709/19/99A solo hike up Mt. Cabot trail on a warm, late summer (early fall??) day. With only one exception, everyone I met on the trail was working on their 4,000 footer list. It seemed like some sort of club, sort of.
Owl's Head402510/02/99Phil and I spent a fall weekend on the array of wet trails and tough river crossings that lead to Owl's Head, my forty-sixth 4,000 footer.
Mt. Waumbek400610/22/99On October 22 I summited Mt. Waumbek on a solo day-hike, my 47th (and second-to-last) 4,000 footer.
Cannon Mountain410010/30/99Phil and I summited Cannon Mountain, my last 4,000 footer in New Hampshire, on a blustery, late fall day.
Mt. Mansfield43939/18/03I took a vacation day on a Wednesday in mid September and drove 166 miles each way to hike the long trail up to the summit of Mansfield (The Chin). The view was great, but looking West and seeing Lake Champlain in the foreground with The Adirondacks in the distance was particularly beautiful.
Mt. Abraham400610/11/03Another great fall weekend with a great fall hike. At the summit, the sky was filled with gliders--a beautiful sight.
