About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

The name "Trekking Peaks" is very misleading, since these are all serious mountaineering objectives. However, the name has long historic usage and I think we are stuck with it.

The summits on this list are special because the Nepalese bureauracy has made their climbing permits relatively simple and inexpensive to get. Most can be climbed in one or two days from a high trekking-accessible base camp, and they provide an way for adventurers who want more than a simple hike to try out a little bit of real Himalayan climbing.

These peaks have elevations in the range of 5800 to 6600 meters. The rules can change frequently, but at present no permits are needed for peaks under 5800 meters, including some summits that were formerly "trekking peaks". All other peaks in Nepal, especially those over 7000 meters, require much more expensive and hard-to-get permits and the accompanying bureaucratic wrangling.

Difficulty-wise, the French Alpine grade on these peaks is usually in the PD range, but some are considerably easier than others. The elevation of these peaks also demands a good acclimitization regime. Many outfitters in Nepal offer guided trips to the "trekking peaks", oftern part of the popular treks to Annapurna, Langtang, and Everest regions.
