About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

  • This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by Scott Bahantka, 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 this list is not authoritative and it is present here mainly so climbers can log their ascents. If you are serious about parish highpointing in Louisiana, then you should visit the County Highpointing Web Site, join the Yahoo County Highpointing Group, and refer to Andy Martin's book for the definitive listing of all the points.

Southern Louisiana presents many challenges to the parish highpointer, since the land is both very low in elevation and the contours are frequently reshaped by river currents and hurricanes. Many of the points listed here are provisional, based on old maps, may be man-made areas, or simply not possible to determine without detailed LIDAR surveys. Simply locating a definitive parish high point is a challenge, in some cases harder than actually getting to that point.
