Re: Great Job

Good suggestion. If I have time in between climbs I'll try to do it if I can figure out how.

Re: Another suggestion

Sorry, I think I'll let those who worry about such things figure that out. I'm just want to get out in the hills and have fun !!!

Re: Another suggestion

Ah, but what makes a peak an "official" peak? Is it that it rises up over 300 feet from the saddle as it seems to be here in Colorado? That is just an arbitary measure that was decided upon, but by whom? Or perhaps it is the fact that a peak is named on a USGS map make it "official"? Personally, I'm of the opinion that if it is named that makes it more "official" than the 300 foot rule.

But honestly, does it really matter? Isn't the idea to get out into wilds and enjoy the scenery and the sense of accomplishment more important than ticking off another "official" peak on some list of peaks?

I think the bar has been set a little higher than this

No peak coordinates, no quadrangle information, no links to TopoZone maps, no links to existing SP pages, no prominence information, no peak rank information, no information as to whether a peak is ranked or unranked, as suggested above.

Sorry, but I can't vote any higher than I have for this sub-par effort. Anyone with an RMNP book has a better list than this at their fingertips. Please see some other good examples of peak lists for an idea of what you're up against. If you're too busy climbing as you indicated above (nothing wrong with that!), then maybe this list should be left to someone who can do a better job with it. This page certainly doesn't hold a candle to your excellent work on the Warbonnet Ridge route page for Chiefs Head.
