Notes:

  • This table shows counts by year and various prominence categories for a climber, plus overall totals.
  • The default is to count only unique peaks climbed, but there is a link above for showing counts of all ascents, which includes multiple ascents of the same peak.
  • Each column refers to a commonly used prominence cutoff for peaks. You can select either metric or foot-based ranges.
  • The "All Peaks" column shows all peaks that have any prominence at all, even those with 1 meter (or 1 foot) of prominence.
  • The "All Points" column will include "liner" highpoints and other zero-prominence spots in the Peakbagger database.
  • When using the Home or Foreign country options, note that peaks on the boundary of your home country are counted as "Home" but not as "Foreign", to avoid double-counting.
    • Also, for this page only, the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey are considered to be part of the U.K. for Home/Foreign purposes.
  • Non-summit goal hikes to places not in the Peakbagger database are not counted in any column.
  • Global total counts for peaks in the ranges from 30m to 1000m (100 ft to 3000 ft) are taken from Andrew Kirmse's master prominence analysis.
  • There are no global counts for all peaks and all points. These totals would be impossible to determine or theoretically infinite.
