To those who have claimed summits and to those who will be claiming summits over the next days and weeks.

Please indicate by which trailhead and route you plan on doing your peak. This will help in the pooling of trailbreaking efforts if necessary.

For example if you are doing RPR you might not want to go from New Russia after three feet of snow. You would want to contact the group leader for Giant and start out together from the trailhead to alternate leaders all the way up the Ridge Trail.

Or, if you plan on Nippletop you can organize with whomever is doing Dial and determine whether you are best to do them separately, travel as a team or each do both peaks but in opposite directions.

Undecided re route...either start at ASRC or ski the road and hike the last 1/4 mile.
A white face and a muddy bottom.....interesting.

Throw me down for Allen from the usual Upper Works TH. I may take skis for the first 5 miles to make it a bit easier, then drop them a bit past the sand pit.

TMax will claim Upper WolfJaw and topofgothics will will take Lower WolfJaw. We will both leave from the Garden so we can experience the views from the new slides in the area.

Paradox & I had discussed Seymour, though it becomes a lot less attractive if the gate is closed by then. Given the winter so far, it's not an issue, but we all know that can change.

I'll take the other (Dial), although I'd love to get both in if it works out.

I tossed around bushwhacking Allen from the brook via Elk Lake, but that wouldn't be in the interest of the collective goal. I figure having both bridges out will give us enough of a challenge. You could come along and, if the rivers aren't iced over, lay down for us to walk on your back

I figured I'd just carry you on my shoulders.

Suprised to see you suggested that (but shouldn't be ), I have been contemplating that route for quite sometime now, . . .maybe in March with a deep snow pack and a good solid crust.

For my trip up Wright I will start at Cory's normal trail head for the Mac's........... Coreys Rd
or maybe from the loj if I sleep in
