One of the most popular challenges in the Adirondack Region of New York State is to take on the Adirondack 46 Peak Challenge. To be crowned a 46'er, one has to register with the Adirondack 46er website, receive their climber number, then summit all 46 peaks in the region in any order and at any time in the year. For those that accomplish this task (which can take from 1-2 years to several to a lifetime), they are recorded as a finisher and are eligible to purchase finisher merch from the store.
Each of the Adirondack Peaks has a unique challenge all its own. K from distance, to elevation change to maintaining navigation and more.
Summiting all 46 peaks takes athletic conditioning, careful planning and time. And for those that are taking on the challenge, I say that each and every peak summited deserves more than just checking off a box on a pad of paper...
Instead of marking off the accomplishment and putting the pad back in the drawer, I say keep track of your success and show it off with these one-of-a-kind 1-1/2" Square Building Blocks each with a unique ADK 46 Peak Emblem designed by me. Treat these (and any of my other ADK46 trackers) as individual awards for a job well done no matter the Peak climbed.
I've sold quite a few Adirondack Peaks Wall Trackers in my shop but wanted to offer something just a little different for those who wanted a bit more creative touch to the tracker pieces in my Adirondack Peak Challenge Tracker. With that in mind, I've designed a unique Adirondack Peak Emblem for each of the 46 ADK Peaks, each containing the name of the Peak, its elevation and more.
These 1-1/2" Square Maple Building Blocks are perfect for stacking on your favorite mantle, bookcase or shelf to show off your achievements and progress on this demanding challenge. Line them all up or stack them high, these ADK 46 Tracker Blocks are sure to keep you looking back on your challenges and looking forward to the next adventure.
For this 2023 Christmas Season only, I will engrave the dates that you've summited the peaks on the reverse side of the emblem absolutely free. Dates must be received at the time of order. Email me at victorwoodforge at gmail dot com when placing your order.
