About the Multiple Ascent Grid:
- This table grid shows all peaks on a given list, and all ascents done by François Desaulniers, 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.
This list showcases the incredible variety of peaks that blanket the state of Washington. Unlike the "100 Highest" or "Bulger" list, which is disproportionately focused on the North Cascades, this list covers peaks in every corner of the state, and all of them are dominant peaks in their vicinity, like high-prominence peaks worldwide.
Snowy giants like Rainier and Baker get most of the attention, but there are a number of summits on this list that are considered more difficult due to brushy approaches, steep rock faces, and other wilderness obstacles. Chimney Rock, with 5.6 rock climbing, is often cited as the hardest peak on this list from a technical standpoint.
Note that the unranked peaks on this list have less than 2000 feet of clean prominece, but they do have 2000 feet or more of optimistic prominence. These unranked peaks are "error range" summits, and some of them may have a very good chance of being over the cutoff. Some climbers elect to ascend these unranked peaks for the sake of completeness.
