Background Information

There are two lists that pertain.The first list is the historic one before the idea of prominence caught on (at least at the level of interest seen today). Although, it should be known that the original list more or less used a prominence cut-off of 400 vertical feet. This list is known as the Bulger Top 100. The Bulgers were a group of like-minded peakbagging folks. One of the members and the first to complete all of the peaks on their list was Russ Kroeker ("Koala"). This occurred in 1980. Since then, about 50 persons have successfully completed the list with one more, Chris Weber, finishing posthumously with the help of friends.

A few summits appear on the Bulger list that maybe should not. However, any peak with a name on the map, even if it has less than the Washington standard prominence cut-off of 400 feet, was counted. These peaks include Sahale Mountain/Peak, Dark Peak, and Blackcap Mountain. Still another peak was unintentionally left off because at the time it was not known that the elevation shown on the map was incorrect: Mt. Ballard is actually at least 40 feet higher than the max 8,301-ft elevation marked on the map. At 8,340+/- ft it would have easily qualified for the Bulger list.The second Top 100 list is more strict: it only includes peaks with 400 or more feet of prominence. This automatically nixed Sahale, Dark, Blackcap. Also, volcanic sub-summits now apply. So Liberty Cap on Mt. Rainier and Sherman, Colfax, and Lincoln peaks on Mt. Baker were added. Most importantly, the 400P Top 100 does not care if a peak be named or not on the map.

Thanks goes to Dr. John Roper for some of the information presented here. A more detailed account of this whole Washington Top 100 business can be seen on his site. Click here. Also, this essay by Bruce Gibbs is an entertaining read. It elucidates the origin of the name Bulgers, a mis-reading of the name Bludgers in the Henry Lawson poem "Bastard from the Bush."

I created a page for Dumbell (am doing Greenwood with some new photos), but don't know how to link it into the list?

I didn't add your Dumbell page to the Washington Top 100 because I thought the page needed elaborating on first. See here for my initial comments to your Dumbell page, which you didn't respond to back then.

I created a Google map of the Bulger 100 from this page.

That's neat. I'll see about providing a link to it somehow on the page. Thanks.

I just created a SummitPost page for Gardner Mountain. Your list currently does not have images for Gardner Mountain (it's the only peak without an image on the lists), but you have permission to use one of mine if you so desire.

Thanks. I'll probably use one of yours (like your signature one). I seem to have very few shots of Gardner Mountain--especially ones I felt worthy to put as a thumbnail. Just one of those things.
