About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

  • This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by Ken Oeser, up to 10 ascents per peak.
  • While many peakbaggers do not like to repeat ascents, some will try to do multiple "laps" or "rounds" of a favorite list, often one close to home.
  • The header for each ascent column shows, in parentheses, the total number of peaks climbed in each "round", and clicking the header link will sort your ascents for that round.
  • Due to space limitations, this listing has just the basic peak info, so up to ten date columns can be shown. Please use the main peak list (linked above) for more basic info and functionality.
  • Some climbers will log two ascents of the same peak on the same day--for example, when doing an out-and-back ridge run with other ascents sandwiched between two of the same peak. Some might not consider these to be two separate ascents for the purposes of doing multiple rounds. Clicking on the "Count a peak only once per day" link in the header will collapse multiple ascents of a peak on a single day into just one ascent for this grid list.

List Description

New Jersey has a nice variety to its county high points. This list has points in real forested mountains, suburban sprawl, and flat farmland. Passaic and Warren counties are the most serious hikes, with the rest being relatively easy drive-ups or short hikes. Several of these have multiple contours that compete for the high point title, and visting all of them can often be the most time-consuming part of a New Jersey highpointing adventure.

Mike Schwartz of Mendham, NJ has completed this list 13 times as of early 2008.


Sources that were used to help me compile this list include:

  • A 1960s-vintage New Jersey State Almanac that listed the county high points. Many were incorrect, since the list was based on old maps, but it was the first county high point list I had ever seen anywhere and got me pointed in the right direction.
  • Using the above source and USGS maps, I determined almost all of these points by personal research done prior to 1990.
  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1993 by Andy Martin, reviewed by Michael Schwartz.
