About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

Colorado is a very mountainous state, and this list reflects its variety of peaks. Fifteen of the approximately 53 famous fourteeners are on this list, and the high thirteeners here make nice alternative hikes to those over-exposed peaks. The list also includes a number of high points on the vast, flat high plains in the eastern third of the state.

John Mitchler was the first to complete this list, on 9/14/1996.


  • Personal research prior to 1995 had determined 23 of these points. I also added all information on individual peak pages, such as latitude/longitude.
  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled by David Olson and reviewed by Andy Martin.
