None of the previous editions put a time next to "The Weissner Route" on Noonmark.

Have you "historians" had a chance to find out which trip to the Adirondacks, Fritz did that climb?

Actually, I'd love to know more about Wiessner's climbs, and other climbs from that era. Combing through what has been written over the years, I've only been able to come up with a few original descriptions (with dates) for his routes. Have any tips?

Jim: you asked earlier for format suggestions. Are you familiar with the guide books put out by Kevin McLane of Elaho publishing in Squamish,BC? His Squamish and Bugaboo guides are superb, giving all the necesary details to find climbs in very complex areas, while leaving plenty of "adventure". His history sections are also superb and I for one look for historical info in all the guides I purchase-- something to read and savor on "rainy" days, of which my experience tells me the Adirondacks have plenty. Thanks in advance for undertaking the job--I look forward to adding your guide to my shelf and often to my pack. Jeff Lea
