About the Multiple Ascent Grid:

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

The Bulgers were a very informal group of climbers who set out to climb the 100 highest peaks in Washington State. This list was never "official", but it has achieved a certain legitimacy among Cascade climbers and it is the usual way to the Washingtion Top 100.

This site also has a list of the strictly defined Washington Top 100, ranking only peaks that have a clean prominence of over 400 feet. These lists are very similar, but do have some differences. While the Bulger list generally uses a 400-foot prominence cutoff, for volcanoes they use an 800-foot threshold, and for other well-known summits with less than 400 feet of prominence they make exceptions.

The differences are (thanks to Jeff Howbert for figuring all this out):

  • The Bulgers drop Liberty Cap, Sherman, Colfax, and Lincoln becasue they are volcanic subpeaks with less than 800 feet of prominence.
  • They also drop Mount Ballard, not realizing that it had a higher unsurveryed point to the north.
  • They add Seven Fingered Jack, Sahale, Dark, Rahm, Horseshoe, Little Annapurna, and Blackcap Mountain, all of which have less than 400 feet of strict prominence.
  • Having dropped five peaks and added seven, they also miss out on the bottom two of the strict 400-foot list, Luna and Castle.

Any way you look at it, this is a very difficult list to complete. Many of these peaks require serious mountaineering skill, including difficult rock-climbing ability. Consensus is that the highest of the Mox Peaks (Southeast Twin Spire) is the hardest to climb, but many of the other summits feature some combination of long approaches, bushwhacking, crevassed glaciers, steep rock pitches, and overall adventure.

The first to complete the Bulger list was Russ Kroeker in 1980.
