I started climbing at age 11 with a Boy Scout troop backpacking trip over Stratton MT., Vermont. Now, over 40 years later I have decided to try and bag all the New England 4's before I turn 60. Even though I have done so many of them in the past, I never logged them so I am starting the list from scratch.
