List Description

This list of 48 ranked peaks in New Hampshire's White Mountains matches closely to that used by the Four Thousand Footer committee of the Applachian Mountain Club. The committee uses an "optimisitic" prominence threshold of 200 feet, which, in terrain covered by maps with 40-foot contours, is equivalent to the 160 feet of "clean" prominence used on this site.

The only discrepancy between the ranked summits on this list and the official 4000-footer club list is that the official list includes South Hancock but not Mount Guyot. This seems odd to me, since Guyot clearly has the exact same prominence as nearby West Bond, an official peak, and South Hancock clearly just misses the 160 foot clean prominence cut-off by 1 foot.

To see the official AMC version of the list, click here.

This list is a very popular peakbagging endeavor, with over 6000 recorded completers. All summits are reached by maintained hiking trails except for Owls Head, where a well-used herd path climbs up a steep landslide to the summit area. Isolation, Bond, West Bond, and Owls Head are the most remote from roads and the only ones that most hikers might not attempt as a day-hike.

The White Mountains (by most definitions) extend into Maine, so it should be pointed out that Old Speck would be on a theoretical "White Mountain 4000-foot Peaks" list of 49 ranked summits.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
