Name changes

"Mount McKinley" is now "Denali" and "Harney Peak" is now "Black Elk Peak." Also, the access dates for Charles Mound, Illinois are now two years out of date as is the information on the Konvention.

Speed record

Matt Moniz's 50-state speed record was recently eclipsed by Maddie Miller. This page used to be kept very current. I wonder what happened. LOL.

Re: Speed record and Name Changes

Cool. If you have any interest in updating the total number of completers in the Introdcution section, there are 273 50 state completers and 522 48 state completers (273+249) as of the second quarter 2016 edition of Apex to Zenith. I'm listed as 50 state completer #268 although I should be #270 as they got my Denali ascent date wrong.

Latest and greatest

Hot off the presses. Here is the list of 50 state completers as of just a few days ago. The astute observer will note several SPers on the list of 286.

50 State Completers

And here are your 559 total 48 state completers (includes 50 state completers as well) ...

Re: Latest and greatest

Very impressive! Getting to 48 or 50 is an amazing accomplishment. I've gotten only 35, with the majority of those done within my first four years of state high-pointing. It isn't terribly difficult to get 40 high points, or even 46. It's the hardest 4 - Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, and Washington State, that make it so tough. Not that Idaho, Oregon, or Utah are anything to sneeze over. My "hardest" high point thus far was California - which really isn't that bad. It's just a very long walk, requiring acclimating beforehand. Respect to all those great achievers!

Re: Latest and greatest

And a great job by Terry Bird and John Mitchler for their exhaustive efforts in maintaining these twin lists for so many years as well as tracking folks who are getting close. Beyond that, I think we're pretty lucky to have such a vibrant community of state highpointers here on SP. Like you say, hgrapid, it's a cool pursuit even if you never have any real intention of doing all 50. We all bring our own personal motivations and realities to the table for a project like this.
