Search Help

Site Search Help
  • Use this option to search for text in trip reports, peak descriptions, or any other text on the site.
  • The Site Search may not have indexed recently added or updated content.
Peak/Range Search Help
  • Use this option to search for a certain peak or range, quickly listing all peaks/ranges that match your search string.
  • For Peak/Range Search, you must enter at least three characters.
  • Do not enter any wildcard characters--the search automatically searches any part of a name.
  • Do not abbreviate any words. Type "Mount Saint Helens", not "Mt. St. Helens".
  • The maximum number of search results for any Peak/Range Search is about thirty or forty.
  • Peak/Range searches are not case-sensitive.
  • The results are in order of how many page hits a Peak or Range has received on this site, so the most popular results should be listed first.
Radius Search Help
  • This will return a list all nearest peaks to a point, ordered by distance from the given point.
  • For Radius Search, use WGS84 decimal degrees for latitude and longitude. South latitude and west longitude are negative. For example: 47.5, -122.84
  • Radius Search results will only find peaks within 100 km of the latitude/longitude, and only the closest 20 peaks if there are more than 20.
  • To do a Radius Search around a peak, do a "Peak/Range Search" first, and the results will have a "Radius Search" link for every returned peak.
  • Checking one of the "Ladder" boxes will return a list of peaks in ascending order of elevation or prominence, starting from the given point.
  • Every page for an individual peak on the site has a "Radius Search" link, plus links for the Elevation and Prominence Ladders.
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.
