About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

  • This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by Lind, 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

There are a number of lists that show the highest peaks in Australia, often with a cutoff after the ten highest. This list, however, was modeled after the many worldwide threshold lists that use a round-number elevation cutoff. Here, 2000 meters is a very nice round number that provides a list of 15 summits that crown the Australian continent.

A prominence cutoff of 60 meters was chosen because a) it seemed about right for this list, and b) the 1:50,000 contour maps of the area have 20 meter contours, so it made sense to use a multiple of 20. Sixty meters is about 200 feet, which is similar to prominence cutoffs used for lists covering similar terrain in the eastern USA.

The peaks on this list are all relatively easy hikes or scrambles, and it is entirely possible to do several of these peaks in a single day. They are all clustered closely together in or near the Snowy Mountains.
