List Description

The "Second Lap" list shows the most prominent peak in every state that is not a state high point. For a climber that has climbed all the state high points, it represents an excellent list of peaks that can be done on a second tour through the USA, highlighting many exceptional peaks that may have been missed. does not host a "second highest" list for the US States, mainly because a consistent prominence threshold for all states needs to be found and any value chosen is arbitrary. The second highest peak in any state is often a matter of debate--for Alaska, is it the North Peak of Denali or Saint Elias? For Florida, which low hill gets the honor? This list is much more straightforward, ignoring the cases where there are multiple candiates for the prominent peak.

Note that for North Carolina, the second most prominent peak (Clingmans Dome) is the state high point for Tennessee, and the third most prominent peak (Roan) is the Second Lap peak for Tennessee. Therefore, to force this list to have 50 unique peaks, the 4th most prominent peak (Huckleberry) was chosen for North Carolina.

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 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.
