Discover how the unlikely trio of Robert Marshall, George Marshall, and Herbert Clark became the first Adirondack 46ers. Joe Ryan shares an illustrated presentation exploring the obstacles hikers face in the high peaks and how hiking the peaks has changed from 1918 to today. Learn the history of the Adirondack 46ers organization and its formation after Clark and Marshall’s achievement of climbing all 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks. Ryan will also share plans for the 100th Anniversary celebrations.
Joe Ryan was born and raised in the Adirondacks. He started hiking the high peaks in 1993 and finished the 46 in 1995 and has gone on to hike them all again. He is 5 mountains short of hiking all 46 peaks four times. Joe served as the Director of the 46ers Executive Board and is the 46er web coordinator. He was the chairman for the Herb Clark memorial stone project and is the Chairman of the Clark and Marshall’s 100th Anniversary Celebration Committee.
