About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

  • This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by Rick Cushing, 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

In the Northeastern United States, 4000 feet is the magic number for most of the famous peakbagging lists. However, the Catskill Mountains of south-central New York State only have two peaks above this threshold, so the best-known Catskill peak list is the 3500 footers.

Despite the low elevations (compared to the higher summits of New England and the Adirondacks), this is a challenging list to complete, with many of the summits reachable only by bushwhacking. Catskill terrain and trails can be very tough, with steep descents and thick vegatation. 16 of these summits have no maintained trail.

Please Note:

This list was generated objectively from raw elevation data, and includes 2 peaks with private property issues. Click here for the official Catskill 3500 list, which does not include those peaks.

Another interesting wrinkle with this list is that the Catskill Mountain Club requires hikers to climb four of these summits (Slide, Blackhead, Balsam, and Panther) twice, including once in the winter, to obtain official recognition.
