About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

Note that there are three National Parks where a most prominent peak is impossible to determine:

  • Everglades: A giant swamp.
  • Congaree: A small swamp.
  • Gateway Arch: A small urbanized tract of land.

The extent to which there are local maxima on the ground surface of these areas is very low, and in the swampy areas there may be quite a bit of change. So it seems best to leave there three parks off the list.

The low and swampy Key Biscayne and Dry Tortutagas National Parks are on islands, so the island high point is also the prominence point.
