Interest in peakbagging developed from backpacking national parks & wildernes areas and related outdoor activities - canoeing, hiking, scrambling, canyoneering, rapelling, spelunking, mountaineering and incidental rock climbing. If there's a location you need info that I may have - email or buddy me,..I'm happy to share/trade route info.
"Peakbagging" can be distinguished from "highpointing". In peakbagging, the targets are the peaks of mountains or hills, and the popular lists usually require that the target pass some threshold of prominence. In highpointing, the goal is only to reach the highest point in some geographic area (e.g., county, state, or country), whether or not it is a peak. These activities have differing goals and PeakBagging is by far more my passion.
I find something worthy about nearly all outdoor experiences so I tend to rate "climbs" higher than others in Peakbagger. My personal Rating System is based on the experience of the route that day and considers geology, solitude, wildlife, isolation, prom, gain, uniqueness, and route conditions. I find it hard not to rate any experience out of the office at least a 5 out of 10 as it beats sitting in the office in the flat, FLORIDA. My wife and kids enjoys hiking (Karen, David, Ben, Sarah, and Daniel) but clearly Karen and Daniel have humored me with the most accompanied hours peakbagging which I am most greatful.
