"Peakbagging" is distinguished from "highpointing" in that the targets are peaks with lists requiring targets to pass some threshold of prominence. In highpointing, the goal is to reach the highest point in some geographic area (e.g., county, state, etc.). I usually avoid CHPs having multiple candidates in favor of destinations maximizing exercise. These two activities overlap as exemplified in state highpointing where the list contains both technical peakbagging activities such as Rainier and Denali as well as standing in the middle of a farmer's cornfield as equivalent achievements!

Peakbagging, is my passion, thus my use of this website. I am secondarily interested in State Highpointing which morphs one into County HPing. There are web sites dedicated to CHPing with set standards to benchmark achievements.Yearning for mountains but residing in FL makes nearly any peak worthy for me to climb, so I rate "climbs" higher than most. My family humors me by accompanying me peakbagging often, which I am most grateful.

This site allows you to develop your own personal goals and lists; and bag peaks in whatever manner you enjoy the outdoors. Run, walk, bike, crawl to the top; just bag a peak your own way and enjoy the addiction of a healthy and fulfilling outdoor hobby!
Thanks to all that has make this site possible.
