List Description

This list, like all the other "Usage" lists, will change over time as ascents are entered into the database. This list is automatically recalculated once a day, so a completion of all these peaks is a moving target that may be frustrating for a climber.

"Quality" is a subjective number between 1 and 10 that, ideally, represents the overall experience of a climb and how proud a climber is of an effort. Not all registered users assign Quality ratings to their ascents, and those that do will often have different opinions on how to apply the scale. So this list has very low statistical reliability.

To be included on this list, a peak must have at least 5 ascents with a Quality rating. All quality ratings for a peak are then averaged to get the metric used above. The result is a list of peaks that, in principle, offer difficult challenges and high rewards.
