PETE'S DEFINITION OF A "PEAK ASCENT"

A peak ascent is hereby defined as completing one ascent of one peak that is a worthy peak. While my standards do vary, most will find a worthy peak fit for a climb. So, a repeated ascent counts as "one" for each additional climb on a particular peak, from the car parking to the top and back. Climbing, say, Pyramid Peak (9,983') twenty five times counts as 25 peak ascents. Most of the peaks are non-technical, although I have, in the deep past, successfully and safely completed a number of moderate Class 5 rock climbs, which I do not necessarily count as "peak ascents."
