About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

New Zealand, unlike countries such as the United States, Canada, and Australia, does not have a tradition of strong local administrative divisions like states or provinces. As such, the list of 17 regions presented here are of relatively recent vintage and are not as well-recognized as, for example, the states of the U.S. or Australia. However, it is all we have to work with if we want a list for New Zealand equivalent to a state high point list.

There are only really 16 regions defined for New Zeland, and the 17th, the "Outlying Islands", is an artifical construct I created to hold the peaks on the Chatham Islands, Auckland Islands, the Snares, Campbell Island, Antipodes Islands, Bounty Islands, and the Kermandec Islands. All of these are conisdered part of metropolitan New Zealand, in contrast to the dependencies of the Cook Islands, Tokelau, and Niue, so therefore should be part of a region. I could not determine which region these islands belonged to, so I created a new region to hold them.

This looks like a fun list to try and complete, with a nice variety to it. The peaks in the Southern Alps are very difficult, but the remainder do not seem unduly hard to attain, except for getting to the Auckland Islands to do Mount Dick.
