The 14ers in Colorado are more about perseverance than climbing ability (my god, there are 58 of them) and the California ones don't get climbed that often (in relation to Colorado and Rainier). Plus, it's a different skill set, different kit, and different mind set for each of the three states... unlikely that too many people have done all of them...

I don't know how that came about, but a supermajority of those who climb th seem to agree on it. And it wasn't decided by a club to my knowledge!
