Wildcat Mt. 2022 Winter Traverse

Date and Time

Sunday, February 13, 2022


wildcat mountain,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,


Registration is required for this activity.


Wildcat Mountain is a ridge in the eastern Whites. It sports 5 summits over 4000' tall, named "A" through "E". Summit "A" is the tallest. Both A and Summit "D" are on the official AMC 4000-footer list. The other three summits lack the necessary 200 feet of topographic prominence to appear on the list. The group will enjoy dramatic mountain views from the ridge throughout the day. At a moderate pace, we will hike 9.3 miles with approximately 3,500 feet of elevation gain. Depending on conditions, we expect the hike to take between 7 and 9 hours to complete, possibly finishing with headlamps. Crampons are required for this hike. All participants must present a copy or image of their vaccination record for COVID 19 or proof that they have received a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the start of the hike. Participants are required to bring a mask to wear, for use anytime we are in close proximity with one another. Please note: the plan includes a 5-minute masked/windows-open car spot. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
