Peak Bagging

Some people look down on peak bagging but I like it. I think it’s because I like lists. In any case, I’ve got a Peakbagger.com account where I keep track of the mountains I’ve climbed.

I think of of my favorite areas is my “List of Lists” where Peakbagger automatically complies your progress towards completing various high point, isolation, prominence, and club lists. I haven’t come close to completing any of them yet but some key summits (Mauna Kea, Katahdin, and Mt. Mitchel) have given me at least one summit on a lot of lists.

The lists I’d like to complete are:

US State High Points

Colorado 14ers

Colorado County High Points

Mountaineers Seattle Clubhouse Peaks (Olympic Mountains)

I also like to dabble with US County Highpointing however there are over 3,100 county equivalents in the US and I’ve only hit 85 of them! (as of August 5, 2017).
