Welcome to!

An online resource for summit-focused hikers, climbers, and mountain lovers is a free web site that presents information and statistics about the mountain peaks and mountain ranges of the world. In addition, registered peakbaggers can log their ascents, post trip reports, and track their climbing activity. The site is based on a large dynamic database of peaks, lists, ranges, and climbers.

Site Highlights

  • Peak lists, peak lists, and more peak lists! A goal of this site is to host the world's largest collection of online peak lists. Currently there are over 600 main peak lists, and over 5000 created by registered users using a query tool or personal selection.
  • Get a free account and track your climbs and peak list completion status online!
  • Browse ranges in the Mountain Range Classification System, a comprehensive taxonomy of the ranges of the world.
  • Find out my take on just what a peakbagger is, in a short essay on the subject.

Latest Site Update
  • 2018-07-29:

    Some code updates:

    • Various minor updates to the map windows. The changes earlier this month (due to the Google price increase) were a bit rushed under a deadline, so some much-needed clean-up and bug fixing were done. All previous data and functionality (minus Google terrain and road layers) should now be present. In particular, the MyTopo maps are now back for USA/Canada.
    • New special web topo maps are now available for Brazil, Costa Rica, Portugal, Finland, and Victoria (Australia).
    • The “Add a Peak” page and Its map interface was totally redesigned due to the mapping changes, and this experience should now be better than it was.
    • The Ascent Subset page now allows selection a single peak, so climbers can see all their repeat climbs of just one peak at once.
    • The Front Runner’s List page now allows hiding of all completers—this is useful for lists with hundreds of finishers clogging up the top spots.
    • “E-Index”, a measure of how many high-elevation peaks a person has been climbed, has been added to the site. While not as interesting as P-Index and I-Index, it does complete the triad of major peak measures.
