  • There’s an easier way to get to find Edward’s website. It was moved to a new domain and the link is on Edward’s page at Peakbagger.com . I didn’t see a reference to Grjótskálarhnjúkur , however.

  • Spectacular stuff, Andrew! It’s great to know how good of hands Edward’s legacy is in.

  • Ken, After attending each other’s completions of the Oregon P2Ks, I would very much like to join you on this one. But I already missed your Idaho completion, and will have to miss Arizona as well for the same reason – I’m still working and can’t fit it into my life. I’m guessing that with your 3 western-state P2K completions you may take the lead in that category, true...

  • I got to thinking about the second tier of tough on the non-Ultra P4K list and here’s what I came up with – these are mostly effort ratings with minor technical challenges in a few. Very subjective! Hole in the Mountain Hyndman Ruby Dome Troy Matterhorn Mica Currant Crestone Katahdin Uncompahgre Deception Prophet Holland (optimistic) North Gardner (optimistic) Ritter...

  • Doug Harris> While on the topic of p4ks, what are the hardest peaks on that list, rivaling the toughest of the Ultras? Interesting question. Considering the combination of technical and effort difficulty, these are the standouts in my mind.

  • Pre-eruption MSH is on Peakbagger. I added it years ago and several folks have recorded ascents against it, but it has never been promoted to the main database.

  • John H> that would somehow imply that 58 ascents is possible for everyone. It is not. It is still possible for certain other people besides us to complete the 58. I’ve spoken with many older Seattle-area climbers who climbed pre-eruption MSH, and some have even shown interest in the 58. But many of the hard-core Washington climbers are very provincial in regards to their mountain...

  • Greg, Mighty fine work on this! I gave up keeping my maps current, but you have infused new life into this great tradition, so kudos to you! All my maps are now up to date, and it was very easy! Everyone, it’s a great time to paint your completion maps and easily get them on the web! If you don’t have a map, you can retrieve one by clicking the link for the map you want on this...
