US County High Point Links
Jeremy Fuerst has self-identified as interested in climbing to the high points of counties in the United States.
September 20, 1997 - Hildreth, NE / September 10, 2021 - Crestone Peak, COJeremy Fuerst was a more fruitful and accomplished climber than most of us would be in 5 lifetimes. He was an avid peakbagger, county high pointer, state high pointer… He was active in the Mountaineers club. He was an advocate for the homeless. He was a certified beer judge.
Philosopher, theologian, climbing historian, storyteller, conservationist, dog lover, great friend. Jeremy had a large sense of humor, booming laugh, and a surprisingly colorful use of the English language. This is the type of personality you want your partner to have for bumpy drives to obscure trailheads to nab county highpoints no one else has ever heard of, for long hikes in to crappy chossy climbs, for boring nights in a tent waiting out weather.
Jeremy’s prolific exploits led him to tag 48 of the 50 U.S. state high points. To complete the last 2 states, his grand goal would be to summit Denali, also known as Mount McKinley, in Alaska. This would be his 49th state high point. Then he planned on inviting all his friends and family to join him in tagging the highest point in the state of Arizona, which is a relatively easy walkup. This would be his 50th state high point and he wanted to have everyone there to celebrate with him.
Jeremy also completed the majority of the county high points west of the Rockies, 38 out of 39 Washington county high points, and 15 peaks above 14000 feet of elevation. Not only that but he had visited almost every single Division One college football stadium. On Peakbagger.com he’s ranked inside the top couple percent of all users in categories like Isolation of climbs, most peaks climbed, etc.
And he was just getting started. Peakbagger has a climb list called the Epic List which is the hardest 95 climbs in the United States as measured by Elevation, Prominence, or Isolation. Only 3 people have ever completed the Epic List! Without actively pursuing this list, Jeremy had already tagged 51 of the 95.
Jeremy’s knowledge of peaks, routes, beta, access issues, and recent trip reports was unmatched. He was an atlas and encyclopedia of both local and worldwide climbing and mountaineering exploits.
Jeremy passed away doing the thing he loved, climbing in the Sangre De Cristo mountain range in Colorado, leaving a crevasse-sized wound in the hearts of a very large number of people.
Jeremy was a very experienced climber with all the right gear and all the right training and outdoor education. He didn’t take unnecessary risks and was always well prepared with a solid plan.
Jeremy was just an all-around good guy. He was giving of himself, his time, and his energy. Jeremy always had a positive outlook. And he was always there to help or support a friend. He was simultaneously a leader and a student.
Jeremy left behind his wife Shannyn, 3 brothers, a large extended family, and a massive network of friends - all of whom are grateful for the time they got to share with this great man.
The quantity of people affected by Jeremy’s passing is just gigantic. He had a positive effect on so many people.
Jeremy was the type of guy who makes a person say, “Man I’m lucky to have met that guy.” He was quite the character. He was one of a kind. There isn’t another one out there like him.
