I haven't climbed anywhere near all of that list, but I can definitely recommend Belleview, "Peak L", Precarious,
"Siberia Peak", Snowmass, and Teocalli.

Gerry happily admits that he will climb various peaks, then declare them to be a "list" and note that he was the first to complete that newly-invented list.

That being said, his climbing achievements over the past 50 years (or more) are significant, so if he wants to make up his own lists, so be it!
