List Description

This is one of the more difficult state county high point lists to complete. As of 2016, only three people (Bob Packard, Adam Helman, and Jim Perkins) have summitted all of these peaks. Mounts Stimson and Cleveland in Glacier National Park are two of the hardest, but many others offer serious alpine challenge.


  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1993 by Andy Martin, reviewed by David Olson.
