List Description

There are approximately 270 "Ultras" (peaks with 1500 meters of prominence) in the United States and Canada. Well over a third of them (101) are in British Columbia, giving that province the undisputed title of most mountainous region of North America. Indeed, B.C. has almost twice as many Ultras as the entire contigious United States (101 vs. 57).

The rugged mountain terrain in British Columbia is an absolute embarassment of riches. The sprawling Coast Range has by far the most peaks on this list, but list of other ranges represented include a big chunk of the Canadian Rockies, the northernmost Cascade Range, the southern section of the greater Saint Elias Range, peaks of Vancouver Island, and the huge but often ignored Columbia Mountains and its Selkirk, Monashee, Purcell, and Cariboo sub-ranges.

Climbers in Washington state are justifiably proud of the North Casades and its repuation as the most rugged and precipitous range in the US outside Alaska. But compared to the stuff north of the 49th parallel, they are just foothills of little note.

This list is a very strong contender for hardest to complete of any list shown on this web site. The sheer number of peaks and the climbing challenges posed by the vast majority of them conspire to create a virtually impossible objective. It is very likely that several summits have not yet been climbed, and the remoteness of many of the Coast Range peaks presents huge access issues.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
