Has absolutely nothing to do with any of above for me.

It is all about the process.... the summit means absolutely nothing.


Well said. Without the risk of death, there is little consequences, so it becomes baseball; only with a MUCH BETTER view.

For me its about going back to things that are interesting

Any mountain, or any three mountains?

Mount Williamson
North Palisade
Maybe Rainier or one of those mountains in the Andes with the cool looking flutings, but I haven't done much research on them. Mostly, I look locally, so the two Sierra peaks are what I really am interested in now. Plus, I really haven't done all that much.

Mount Rainier is a cool peak, but theres a lot more peaks I would climb instead of Rainier around the world. Although I will say I have been over 10,000 feet on Rainier at least 6 times and feel like I need to go back. :) It's certainly on my top 10 favorites.

Yup! It has always been about the process and never the summit for me.

That is why hard challenging Aid and Mixed Ice are my favorite games in this deal.

Extended reach perhaps Kanchenjunga, K2 and Nanga Parbat hmm or Makalu

More feasible in the short term, Shivling, Khan Tengri, Denali West Rib.
