The List

I've moved work on this page to my new website, where these lists are broken up better and filled in with more information. Depending on if I find further use for this page, I might delete it.

Page is still under construction. I haven't finished listing all routes/climbs completed, finished all lists, or incorporated the other annotations yet

Lists of climbs can be nice to work by, as they can mark a definite point of completion, indicate a short list of 'must do' climbs, or just give one an excuse to go to various peaks or regions while climbing a peak along the way.

Here I figured I'd put up some of the lists I am drawing from to select my climbs. The first set of lists are of summits to reach, and the later lists are of routes to climb.

(DNF) = Did not finish peak or route
(DNS) = Finished route but did not summit peak
(Ascent Route - Descent/Continuing Route)
(Intended Route(s) on peak list)

Peak or route already listed in prior list
Peak or route listed but not on agenda

(Western) State Highpoints

Frankly, I really only care about the peaks in the Western States. If I happen to be near one elsewhere, I might climb it.

Peaks are listed in order of elevation.
