The White Mountain Report: Jul 23rd, 2015
So the big BUZZ around here this week has been about the proposed new AMC hut in Crawford Notch. It will be the 10th AMC hut in the White Mountains - 8 “high mountain” plus the 2 Crawford Notch and Pinkham hotels. Local reactions range from “they’re good for business, let ‘em do whatever they want” to “this is just another grab for money, by an already money-hungry organization”. I have some friends who have been through the experience of the AMC expansion in Crawford Notch, and who have some very negative opinions, plus I also have an ex-business partner who is on the Board. So I’ve heard that side as well. As someone who lives in the White’s, I must admit that it’s hard for me to come to grips with yet another hut up here, but you should make up your own mind.

Quotes From the Ledge:
I was once bouldering in solitude in the Needles, when a young female walked up and introduced herself and asked who I was. I told her and continued bouldering. She turned and walked away after a few minutes, saying over her shoulder: 'you can't be John Gill. He climbs much better than that'.
