About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

  • This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by Tim Worth, up to 10 ascents per peak.
  • While many peakbaggers do not like to repeat ascents, some will try to do multiple "laps" or "rounds" of a favorite list, often one close to home.
  • The header for each ascent column shows, in parentheses, the total number of peaks climbed in each "round", and clicking the header link will sort your ascents for that round.
  • Due to space limitations, this listing has just the basic peak info, so up to ten date columns can be shown. Please use the main peak list (linked above) for more basic info and functionality.
  • Some climbers will log two ascents of the same peak on the same day--for example, when doing an out-and-back ridge run with other ascents sandwiched between two of the same peak. Some might not consider these to be two separate ascents for the purposes of doing multiple rounds. Clicking on the "Count a peak only once per day" link in the header will collapse multiple ascents of a peak on a single day into just one ascent for this grid list.

List Description

Canada is composed of 10 provinces and three territories (the territory of Nunavut was created in 1999). Quebec and the province of Newfoundland and Labrador essentially share a high point, so there are really only twelve summits to climb here, a relatively short list.

However, this is definitely one of the hardest lists to complete in the world, and far harder than the 50 U.S. state high points. Of the twelve peaks, five (high points of BC, NL/QC, NT, NU, YT) require serious week- or month-long expeditions to remote alpine environments where access is usually by airplane. And the climbing is often very technical rock, glaciers, or ice. A sixth, Mount Columbia (AB), is perhaps comparable to Mount Rainier in the USA. The lowest six are certainly easier, but even then two of them (ON, NS) are still long, hard days of hiking or bushwhacking on faint paths in remote wilderness woods.

As of mid-2018, only four people have been known to have reached all of these summits. Three are listed in this site's "FRL": Jack Bennett (of Arizona), his son Tom (Georgia), and Len Vanderstar (B.C.). A Canadian climber named Darrell (not a member of this site) also finished this list on Mt. Fairweather in May, 2018.
