List Description

In the Northeastern United States, 4000 feet is the magic number for most of the famous peakbagging lists. However, the Catskill Mountains of south-central New York State only have two peaks above this threshold, so the best-known Catskill peak list is the 3500 footers.

Despite the low elevations (compared to the higher summits of New England and the Adirondacks), this is a challenging list to complete, with many of the summits reachable only by bushwhacking. Catskill terrain and trails can be very tough, with steep descents and thick vegatation. 15 of these summits have no maintained trail.

Another interesting wrinkle with this list is that the Catskill Mountain Club requires hikers to climb four of these summits (Slide, Blackhead, Balsam, and Panther) twice, including once in the winter, to obtain official recognition.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
