Update 06/09/21 - I have been granted ownership of this page by sierramtngoat and I look forward to bringing it back to life! I have started gathering the missing links in the list below and identifying the peaks that are missing their own pages. I will eventually make an effort at getting the interactive map back up and running. I would love to recruit some users to help produce missing peak pages, please reach out if interested or if you complete any.

Requesting feedback from any Ogul hikers on what the page may be missing, any input is welcome.

The Ogul list was created in the early 1980s by a group of hikers and climbers in Northern California who were members of the Peak and Gorge Section within the Mother Lode Chapter of the Sierra Club. The list includes the most notable and worthy peaks in the area around Lake Tahoe. 

Ogul is the Washoe Native American word for mountain bighorn sheep. The Washoe Tribe hunted this agile mountaineer in both the Sierra Tahoe Region and the Basin and Range to the east. Though now extinct in the area, this once great mountain sheep is a fitting symbol for our Tahoe Ogul List.

Needs some work

Hey, whatever happened to finishing this page (I just added a link to Phipps Peak, and started looking at this again)? The interactive map no longer does anything, as far as I can tell.

Many apologies

Well, I have to apologize for abandoning this page. I got orders to Germany and left California for a while, eventually made it back for the birth of my daughter and then six months later got orders to move to Georgia. That's where we live now and I completely lost site of this page and summit post. Honestly I can't remember what I was doing to make the map interactive! It would be great if someone could take the page over. I don't have first hand info on the peaks anymore I was ticking through them one at a time when I lived in California.

Children refers to the set of objects that logically fall under a given object. For example, the Aconcagua mountain page is a child of the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits.' The Aconcagua mountain itself has many routes, photos, and trip reports as children.



Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
