About the Climbers Page:

  • Thousands of hikers, climbers, and mountain enthusiasts from all over the world are logging their mountain adventures using Peakbagger.com.  On this page, you can search for an indivudual climber by name or location, or you can see various "Hall of Fame" lists of superlative peakbaggers. 
  • Of course, many accomplished climbers are not registered site users, so the Hall of Fame lists are nowhere near comprehensive.
  • Climbers and hikers who are interested in tracking their ascents and list completion progress can create an account on this site and enter their climbs and hikes.  Visit the Login page if you would like to start tracking your climbs using this site.
  • If you are a registered Peakbagger.com member, and you do not want to appear in these lists, you can click your "Edit Account" link when logged in and check the "Keep your ascent data hidden" checkbox. You will not appear in any of the lists on this page unless you are logged in--no one else will see an entry for you.
