I want to complete the 50 state highpoints (34 to go, but I have done all of the "hard" ones). Other than that, I really would like to try:

1. Logan
2. Robson
3. Matterhorn
4. Aconcagua

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'd be seriously interested in helping ya set up a trip like this.

I dont dream big, but here goes. All with a different aesthetic, and in no particular order:

Mauna Loa
Mt. dubois
University Peak
Vestal peak
Grand Teton
Mt. fairweather
Mt. williamson
North Pal
Longs Peak

Really only one high dollar expedition. If I had the cash, my wife prolly wouldnt let me burn it on climbing anyway.

This lot probably don't look that impressive, but then most of my experience is in hiking/scrambling/up-to-grade-5 (UK) sport climbing on walls or low cliffs (Dorset). So:

Definitely not capable of technically right now:

Mont Blanc, Matterhorn (predictable I know)
Mount Rainier (ditto I suspect; seen it from Seattle and probably remains the "biggest" mountain I've ever seen in my life, w.r.t surrounding land level)


* Most Colorado fourteeners (except Pikes Peak, which I've done): I'm sure I'm technically able to do the majority and could afford the flight to Denver from the UK but the USA's poor public transport system is the main limiting factor, as I don't drive.

* Mount Shasta (same comments though more technical)

* Mount Fuji, from the bottom. I know it's very much a tourist peak but it looks incredibly photogenic and I'm intrigued by climbing something from sea level to that sort of height. Lack of Japanese-speaking ability is the only thing that worries me about a trip to Japan, otherwise I'm sure I could do this.
