Hikers who have climbed the 46 peaks in winter (December 21-March 21) and who have recorded their ascents with the Office of the Historian receive winter recognition and are entitled to wear the Winter 46-R rocker patch. Only those who are in excellent physical condition, properly equipped and skilled in winter techniques should attempt this, as winter climbing can be demanding and exhausting. Parents should be particularly careful in assessing the abilities of their children. It helps when winter hiking, to be familiar with the peaks, the weather, the hazards and to climb with a group of experienced winter hikers. A good place to start is by attending the ADK’s Winter Mountaineering School.
Due to the ever increasing popularity of year around climbing the Adirondack Mountains we have opted for a one and only Member Roster combining data previously found in both. Updating two lists became not only cumbersome but resulted in numerous errors. Consequently all recorded climbers will have to wait for their number to be assigned before appearing on the Roster.
A complete list of all recorded FORTY-SIXERS, including their climbing number, name, and dates of first and last ascent, and when applicable will be found a W next to the recorded number as well as the date of the winter status acquisition (both highlighted in blue): HERE.
