1. Shasta, unfinished after 5 attempts, all with A/T skis, great descents on skis, turned around at top of Misery Hill last May.
2. Mt. Hurd (Sierra), unfinished business.
3. Mt. Emerson (Sierra), unfinished business
4. Whitney in winter/spring snow
5. Rainier
6. Orizaba
7. Denali
8. Lyell (Sierra)
9. Darwin (Sierra)
10. Junction Peak (Sierra)

When I was younger I would have included some Patagonia, Himalaya, and Karakoram peaks. At this stage of my life I've adjusted my dream, still enough of a challenge but possible.

Nice thread Kiefer. Here is my top 10 divided into 3 categories. These mountains I think I have a good chance to get around to attempting someday:
1. Denali (attempted in 2009 and was denied)
2. Aconcagua
3. Huascaran (was on this mountain last week at this time and was denied)
4. Mustagh Ata or some other high yet not too difficult peak in Asia
These mountains really interest me and I figure someday there is at least a small chance I might attempt one of them:
5. Manaslu
6. Spantik or G2 or something in the Karakoram
7. Logan
8. Hunter
These mountains I will never attempt because I am not badass enough, but love the idea of climbing them just the same:
9. K2
10. Yerupaja

So, since many of us have peaks on our various list that are shared with other SP list, when are we getting together to climb some of them?

I'm seriously thinking of Khan Tangri, Pobeda or Kommunizma in 2014, though I would have to convince my employer to let me off for that long. 3 weeks is supposedly max.

I would be very interested, Scott. Speak Russian, and have a few friends with local connections too. Friend's brother used to be a guide in the area.

Khan Tengri

I would be very interested, too! Awesome idea. Two years is a good amount of time to prepare for this I think.

Most of the things on my list I fully expect to do or atleast attempt. Just need to get around to do them,(easier said then done when this year I've had a broken leg and then knee surgery among other things).Being a single dad for two little girls also complicates things (but in a really good way).....

Many of mine a pretty obscure so the overlap with others will probably be minimal. But for me:

1) Moonlight Buttress (Zion) Free (hopefully in the fall)
2) Venturi Effect (High Sierras) hopeful over Labor Day
3) working on freeing Salathe (Yosemite): I won't get it, but it would be fun to work (was going to do it this summer but knee surgery interferred with that)
4) All along the Watchtower (Bugaboos)
5) Huscaran Norte, North Face (Peru)
6) Cayesh (Peru)
7) Chacaraju (Peru)
8) Kasum Kangaru, North Face (Nepal)
9) Perutney Intergal (Mt. Blanc)
and

10) Haute Route with my daughters (when they get older)...

Some of the routes I've tried before and have gotten a schooling. Some I've only seen but for me I figure its better to give an honest attempt at something then to someday only wished I did.

hey vitally whats so funny the line is still there and the most asthetcly pleasing just for the argument now that its been made "harder" ragni route seems like the better option in terms of sucsess but still for a dream route the compressor freed is one of the most impressive mountaineering feets
