It’s time for the 2015 Stat Crazy post! (Here’s the 2014 Edition)
I hiked 50 different times totaling 277 miles. This is down from 61 hikes in 2014 but my mileage was also up.
2014 had definitely been my best year to date and I topped it in 2015! I hiked 56 summits in 200 miles with 71,000 feet of elevation gain. This represented only a 12% modest increase in peaks climbed but a fairly substantial 78% increase in peakbagging miles and 104% increase in elevation gained.
I hiked 31 county highpoints in Washington, Colorado, and Arizona. I reached my goal of at least 50% of Colorado’s County High Points by the end of 2015, clocking in with 54.7% of the list completed (35/64). I made some serious progress on Arizona’s County High Point list, reaching 46.7% (7/15) thanks to an amazing Thanksgiving trip. I claimed another state high point, Mt. Elbert during my county high pointing quest. Elbert was also one of 7 (ranked) 14ers I summited in 2015 (the others were Grays, Torreys, Castle, Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross) putting me at 22% on the CMC 14ers list.
Peakbagging was my emphasis in 2015 but I upped my mileage in December and look forward to upping it again during January. Looking forward to a much more consistent and well rounded workout schedule in 2016 to facilitate more peaks!
