About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

This list shows the peak in each European country with the greatest topographic prominence. As it turns out, for well over half of these countries (35 of 54, or 65%) the highest and most prominent peaks are the same. The remaining 19 peaks provide some good alternate climbs in their respective nations.

There is no consensus as to what nations or peaks constitute a European country high point list, and this site lists four flavors of that well-known pursuit. Not wanting to recreate all that again for the most-prominent list for Europe, the approach here is to be very inclusive and list all most-prominent peaks for all nations and dependencies that are European and semi-European, including all Caucasus region nations, Norwegian Arctic territories, and mid-Atlantic Island highpoints for Iberian nations.

The Vatican City is left off this list, since any notion of prominence has disappeared under centuries of urbanization.


Thanks to Lee Newton, who did the research on the non-high points on this list and made its publication here possible.
