Join the Fun

Anyone can participate and it's easy to do.

Pick a Nickname

Are you having trouble settling on that perfect nickname, moniker or sobriquet? Don't worry, because you can change it at any time. In fact, many of us have been changing our nicknames with the start of each new season. It's all part of the fun!

Record Your Peaks

Record your peaks by submitting the Progress Form each time you hike. Your submissions and those of other hikers are tabulated periodically and are displayed in the tables above.

Track Your Progress

You'll be able to track your progress towards the Single Season 35'R, the Catskill High Peaks - 4 Seasons and the Catskill 420 Grid milestones. There's even a special "39" Report for aspirants.

Easy Milestone Completion Process

When you've reached a milestone and would like to be recognized and receive a patch, you'll be a step ahead of the game with your peaks recorded already in our system. Just email us, and we'll set you up with an accelerated and simplified fulfillment process.

Quick Start for Previous Milestone Completers

If you've previously completed a milestone, email us and we'll transfer the peaks and dates you provided into our system.

Bulk Upload Assistance

If you've been recording your peaks electronically (eg. in a spreadsheet) and would like assistance in uploading your peaks and dates, email us and we'll help you through the process.

Other Ways to Keep Your Tally

It all starts with the Catskill 3500 Club Tally Sheet. All aspirants need to submit a completed Tally Sheet to become members of the Catskill 3500 Club. Make sure to include lots of detail on your Tally Sheet as this allows the Membership Chairman to craft a personalized member letter for you. You will use this tally sheet for your Winter 35'R application as well.

Our Catskill High Peaks 4 Seasons Sheet is useful if you are pursuing advanced Catskill peak bagging and like working with a paper format. It features a Hikers Anonymous™ innovation — the color-coded, proximity based peak arrangement. You'll find this really convenient as you start to plan and complete longer, multiple peak hikes. When you're pursuing a Single Season Triangle, having a strategy for completing each color-coded section is a key ingredient in achieving your milestone successfully and this arrangement helps you do this. The four column format is specifically geared toward the pursuit of the Catskill High Peaks - 4 Seasons Milestone, but you can use it for other pursuits as well.

The Hikers Anonymous™ Tally Card is the smallest tally sheet of them all. You can use it to record your peaks out in the field. It's the size of a business card and it fits conveniently inside your phone case, wallet or in your car's window visor. These are available at some of the coolest peak bagger hangouts like Westkill Brewing and Fruition Chocolate Works.

Ha! Tally Cards

Our newest innovation is our online Record Your Peaks and Track Your Progress system. The Progress Form is like an electronic canister for the dedicated Catskill peak bagger. There may be only 15 Catskill High Peaks that have canisters, but our electronic canister works for all 35!
