I saw the article on Jack Northam
http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/may/29/wound-up-about-whitney/

It mentioned a 100 ascents "club" Is there a link for this or some place where I can find out more?

Thanks

americasroof, Jack is "Wtny n1." on this message board. "Bob R" (Bob Rockwell) is the other member mentioned in the article. "Richard P" (Richard Piotrowski) is closing in on 100 - maybe this year. I'd bet Kurt Wedburg has at least 100 summits just by the Mountaineers Route. Oh yeah, there's also some cook named Doug . . .

If there's a "club", it's probably informal - but convenes at the Whitney Portal Store during the summer months. The founding member was most likely Gustave Marsh 100 years ago smile

Thank you. I was looking to see if there was public list somewhere of people who have done it. I had posted a note on Jack at http://americasroof.com/archives/1377 Thanks again!
