    I used 100 Mile Wilderness Adventures last year and had a great experience. The owner does focus more on section hikers, weekenders, and others that may not even be hiking.

    Well, it's funny that you should mention this. Of all the climbs on the AT, South Kinsman sticks out in my mind as one of the top 3 toughest ones (for me at least). So yeah, I agree with what you...
