Congratulations! You have really high numbers! 50 times to such a high peak!
(I have a peak with 50 ascents, too, but it's only 2008 feet high. The altitude gain when getting up there is 1430 feet. I do that in 45 minutes. This is my "house-peak". Unfortunately not enough high)
And thanks for your comments/records. You are the first one (after me) making your records visible!
Kilimanjaro - 19,340' or 5895 meters
32 miles on my birthday in 2003 in southern Oregon during a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. I wanted to hike my age (31 that day) but went another mile before I found a suitable camp site.
Not sure on this one, but the one that comes to mind was 6572 feet starting at the Bells Canyon trailhead in Salt Lake City, UT and topping out on the Pfeifferhorn at 11,326. This was part of a long ridge traverse called the Beatout (only I did it in reverse from the normal direction), so the ups & downs likely added a lot more to the true total for the day.
Highest peak : Vignemale, 3298m
Highest elevation : Punta Alta from Pont de Rius, 2400m up and down
Longest hike within one day : 30-40 km but where ?
Highest technical difficulty : Ridge of Trois Conseillers (summer) and Hourgade (winter)
This 2400 m doesn't mean that you started from 614 m, but it means that your summarized daily elevation gain was 2400 m, right? Anyway whichever it was, congratulation to it!
And just a note/question: I don't understand why only very few people add their records. Or am I too childish to be interested in it? Is everybody so professional here that they don't want to be proud of their achievements?
I reached a peak of some 3000m starting from a remote point, basically with a high pass to go through, a big gap, and the peak to climb, and the pass again on the way back.
I have no idea about what do other people think. Perhaps yes, not so many are interested in such records ! 3 days ago I broke a record, my most drunk bike ride. I'll write a TR about it in MBPost !
Funny KPI: most drunken bike ride :) Not easy to measure!
Grossglockner, Austria - 3798 m (12460 ft), on 2 June 2008.
Could be one of those three, within a margin of error.
Grossglockner from Lucknerhaus and back (3798-1918=1880m or 6168ft), 2 June 2008, or
Triglav from Aljazev dom and back (2864-1015=1849m or 6066ft), 7 August 2001, or
Mytikas (Mt Olympus) from Prionia and back (2917-1050=1867m or 6125ft), 18 August 1998.
Honestly no idea what my longest hike in a day was :)
Sport (redpoint): VI.3+ Polish / VIII+ UIAA / 7a+ French
Sport (on sight): VI.2+ Polish /VIII- UIAA / 6c French
Trad: VI.2 Polish / VII+ UIAA / 6b+ French (all in the Polish or Austrian limestones back in the 90's when I was young and strong:)
Really scary trad: HVS 5a (felt more like E1) / about VI+ UIAA ('The Russian', Symonds Yat, Gloucestershire, England, 2004)
Mountains: VII- AF/A0, trad on lead ('Balkans Peace Park', FA of Maja Lagojvet, 31 August 2009).
It was along the PCT from the I-8 to Sunrise Trailhead
This hike was Cactus to Clouds to Cactus, also the most challenging hike I've ever done. It takes you from the desert floor of Palm Springs to the peak of San Jacinto, and back down, hence the second cactus in the name of the hike.
I climber The Grandstand in Death Valley using an easy class 5 route, although it wasn't much of a climb. I haven't done too much real rock climbing and hope to do more someday.
