Background Information

CURRENTLY, 92 of the Bulger 100 are represented and about 90 of the TCxCCCCP are represented. The last addition was Luahna Peak in Jan. 2013. This will be a list page for Washington's 100 highest summits. 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 (see here). Since then, and as of 2009, 35 persons have successfully completed the list with one more, Chris Weber, finishing posthumously with the help of friends. Six persons finished in 2006: Martin Shetter on August 13, Fay Pullen on August 18, Paul Michelson on August 28, Don Duncan on September 6, Roy McMurtrey on October 1, and Tom Sjolseth on October 21. Two persons finished in 2008: Paul Klenke on July 27 and Kathy Baillie on August 23. There were four finishers in 2009: Matt Burton on May 30, Pat O'Brien on July 25, Chris Robertson on October 9, and Art Freeman on October 11. Kathy is one of only five women to finish the Bulger List. And I think Tom, at age 30 years, 4 months, and 19 days, is the youngest to finish. TO BE UPDATED SOON (2013) WITH A TABLE OF FINISHERS 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. As of this time (July 2012) only eight persons have completed this list: John Roper (1991 on Liberty Cap), Silas Wild (2007 on Sherman Peak), Don Goodman (2007 on Luna Peak), Fay Pullen (2008 on Liberty Cap), Dave Creeden (2008 on Liberty Cap), Paul Klenke (2008 on Mt. Rainier), Tom Sjolseth (2011 on Castle Peak), and Chris Robertson (2012 on Luna Peak). Fay is the only woman to finish the Top 100 x 400P list. She is also the oldest person to finish the list (age 65). 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 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.
