About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

There are approximately 270 "Ultras" (peaks with 1500 meters of prominence) in the United States and Canada. Well over a third of them (100) are in British Columbia, giving that province the undisputed title of most mountainous region of North America. Indeed, B.C. has almost twice as many Ultras as the entire contigious United States (100 vs. 57).

The rugged mountain terrain in British Columbia is an absolute embarassment of riches. The sprawling Coast Range has by far the most peaks on this list, but the roster of other ranges represented include a big chunk of the Canadian Rockies, the northernmost Cascade Range, the southern section of the greater Saint Elias Range, peaks of Vancouver Island, and the huge but often ignored Columbia Mountains and its Selkirk, Monashee, Purcell, and Cariboo sub-ranges.

Climbers in Washington state are justifiably proud of the North Casades and its repuation as the most rugged and precipitous range in the US outside Alaska. But compared to the stuff north of the 49th parallel, they are just foothills of little note.

This list is a very strong contender for hardest to complete of any list shown on this web site. The sheer number of peaks and the climbing challenges posed by the vast majority of them conspire to create a virtually impossible objective. It is very likely that several summits have not yet been climbed, and the remoteness of many of the Coast Range peaks presents huge access issues.
