About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

Seven of the eight Connecticut counties have a most prominent peak that is different from the county high point. Only Burley Hill in Tolland County is both the highest and most prominent peak in its county.

It is not certain that North Preston Hill is the most prominent peak in Connecticut. Preston Hill, a little bit south and located in New York State, could be higher, and if that is the case, then Litchfield County's most prominent peak is Ellsworth Hill, and the state prominence point is the Hanging Hills.
