Keith Gentili: White Mountains State

When Keith Gentili was 44 years old, he had a goal: to become a member of the AMC Four Thousand Footer Club. According to, the list was formed to “introduce hikers to some of the lesser-known sections of the White Mountains of New Hampshire.” He planned to finish the list by his 48th birthday, which he did that night four years later.
