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

This list, like all the other "Usage" lists, will change over time as ascents are entered into the Peakbagger.com 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.

The "Ascents" column above show the total number of unsuccessful attempts on a peak logged in the Peakbagger.com database. Multiple failed attempts by one climber are all counted. However, note that many registered site users do not log their unsuccessful ascents, so this list is not very robust statistically. However, it does give a somewhat interesting picture of some worldwide summit that are perhaps among the most difficult to ascend.

A personal note--I have long maintained that there should be no shame or stigma in an unsuccessful attempt. They are excellent learning experiences and a sign of wise maturity in the mountains. Never climb with someone who has never turned back! And don't be afraid to log your trips where the summit was just not in the cards.
