There are 46 Adirondack High Peaks, which originally meant peaks higher than 4,000 feet, but actually includes several peaks below this threshold for historical reasons. There is a separate FKT route for climbing all 46 as fast as possible.
There have been a few attempts to summit as many peaks as possible in 24 hours. Bob Marshall set an early standard by climbing 13 high peaks in 1932. His route is known as the Bob Marshall Traverse. More recently, Jeff Mogavero and Jan Wellford each summited 24 peaks on the same day (but in separate unsupported efforts) in 2015. Most of the peaks have maintained trails to the summits but a few require some bushwhacking.
The peaks are
- South Dix
- East Dix (Grace)
- Lower Wolf Jaw
- Upper Wolf Jaw
It should be noted that Jeff stopped his watch at the summit of the final peak. It is unknown whether Jan did the same or measured his time from trail head to trail head.
The easiest peaks to add onto this would be Colden, Redfield, Street, and/or Nye.
