2010 climbing stats

Postby CSUMarmot » Fri Dec 31, 2010 9:54 pm

Since the year is over and many of us keep track of things like our elevation gain and mileage over the course of our adventures, I'd like to see the numbers you guys have put up through 2010

I have:
106984 vertical feet of elevation gain over 368.1 miles, at a maximum elevation of 14259' (Longs Peak)
Dammit kid get off mah lawn!!!

I have something like 202,710 vertical feet of elevation gain (20,000 of that in just two days and 40,000 of that in just 6 days, and a record of 14,000 ft. of gain in 27 nonstop hours) after briefly reviewing all my adventure albums of 2010, a shit load of miles I'm not even going to try to count them. 90% of these stats are from the Sierra Nevada which consists of doing peaks all above 10,000 ft., averaging a majority of 13ers and 14ers.

I truly hope my 2011 year is a much better year for climbing. I have nothing to "brag" about thought for this year, bummer

Wow, such competition. Gotta go to a NYE party, so gotta be brief.

At first, Darija's numbers seemed amazing. Then I recalled that I average at least 4000' of gain per week. A lot of it is subtle; two desert peaks this week, routes that were generally untouched, one with a lot of class 4 climbing. Only 2300' gain on the harder one, 3900' on the two easier peaks. But it does add up.

I don't try to whoop anyone's ass but mine. I have my own limits -- bluntly, worse limits than most folks -- that I must always test, check, recheck. At 56, I don't expect a lot of improvement, so I just go on. I'm often the youngest member of the group.

A much greater success: I led a bunch of trips to obscure places, got everyone there and back safely, and helped a lot of people face their limits, overcome them, and return happy and proud. I'm not sure how to put that stat in competitive terms, but it makes me feel a lot better than the total elevation gain. I guess that kind of introspection comes with age.

It should not be what we have done, but what we have exposed others to do! I had three friends experience thier first summits in 2010, they are hooked!

And for myself...

I have probably, no, certainly, done less than in previous years in terms of elevation gain or mileage, but I have taken my kids with me on my trips at least twice as often than last year. And they seemed to have enjoyed it.

And there is no mileage ot elevation gain that can measure my joy and pride in doing so.

Before this gets moved to PnP, ...

I'm on an Arizona based hiking site where the trip log system tracks your mileage and elevation. I'm proud to have done 291,151 vertical feet and 882 miles in 2010 and it is my best year yet. I have over 900,000' and 2,700 miles since I started logging trips back in September of 2006 when I joined. My longest trip as a climb was Grand Teton and my longest overall hike was a 50 mile pack trip in the Gila Wilderness in NM, That was something I had wanted to do since 2003 and was really happy to have done. I think I have solid numbers, but there are folks on the site with over 500,000 vertical and 2000 miles. Very little of my figures are "climbing", but mountaineering is a lot of hiking, so I figure it's relevant.
