Peakbagging

Peakbagging is the sport of climbing every mountain peak above a certain elevation in a particular State or area.

2015 saw me finally reach Liberty Cap on Mt. Rainier, completing the Contiguous USA (actually the Lower 49) 14ers, 13,8ers, and the Hundred Highest. I am apparently the third person on record to complete the Hundred Highest. I thought I had sworn off starting new peakbag lists, but Bob Packard (the guy who finished the 100 first) sent me the list of the 200 Highest, and I now have only two to go! He has only one peak to go on that list but is retiring from that quest, so I have a chance to be the first...

Lists Nearing Completion
