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

The "Second Lap" list shows the most prominent peak in every state that is not a state high point. For a climber that has climbed all the state high points, it represents an excellent list of peaks that can be done on a second tour through the USA, highlighting many exceptional peaks that may have been missed. does not host a "second highest" list for the US States, mainly because a consistent prominence threshold for all states needs to be found and any value chosen is arbitrary. The second highest peak in any state is often a matter of debate--for Alaska, is it the North Peak of Denali or Saint Elias? For Florida, which low hill gets the honor? This list is much more straightforward, ignoring the cases where there are multiple candiates for the prominent peak.

Note that for North Carolina, the second most prominent peak (Clingmans Dome) is the state high point for Tennessee, and the third most prominent peak (Roan) is the Second Lap peak for Tennessee. Therefore, to force this list to have 50 unique peaks, the 4th most prominent peak (Huckleberry) was chosen for North Carolina.
