576 peaks in 319 days, worst winter in decades

This is amazing story about a friend of mine. This guy is a monster, there is no other word to describe him. One of the most driven and focused people I've ever met. The total distance traveled was 4,300kms and he gained more than 304,000 metres in elevation. For those who may not appreciate the nature of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, USA...they are routinely categorised as the worst weather in the United States. This is due to the unlikely convergence of three jet-streams over the center of the area. The world's hardest wind record stood on Mt Washington for more than 60 years, 370kmh (231mph). When you combine this with the fact that he had the worst winter in decades, this is an incredible feat. Enjoy! https://www.outsideonline.com/2399707/new-hampshire-white-mountains-grid-fkt

Sounds as though John Pascoe is being vindicated for his comments about the Tarries. Not a place to tarry on some days.
i descended off field peak towards mt hector in zero visibility and started climbing again, got to the top.... thats funny, i cant find the cross.... thats because seperately the individualst in the group and turned around on the saddle without knowing it and gone back up field. it was blowing hard and cold, i wasnt feeling well so chucked the crossing in that day and went back to kime hut...
Would anyone be down for a forum group tramp of the Southern Crossing? Get a few people together, etc...
