That would be nice, or a list of classic routes (technical and non-technical) along the lines of Steck and Roper's 50 Classic Climbs but there are some on that list that I'm not too interested in. I know it's blasphemay but I don't have much interest in sleeping on a cliff and pooping through a tube and I'm never going to be a good enough climber to do Half Dome or El Cap in a day.

But a 50 or 100 Classics for CO is a list I might actually be interested in doing.

But wouldn't they cease to be hipster peaks once everyone knew about them? :wink:

You know who has that list of peaks? Kansas.

Why stop at just the ranked 13ers and not climb them all?

He can keep the list to himself. Or if you're talking about the state of Kansas, I'm pretty sure I don't want to know their list of peaks, hip or not.

Put Hagar on the list for hipster peaks. 13ers are supposed to provide solitude - to compensate for subpar views compared to 14ers, but 3 large groups of skiers going for the same meager line? Really? That's it, I am going back to 14ers, 13ers are getting to be too crowded. The mountain was very angry all day today because of a conga line of hipster skiers violating its slopes.

Some of the people I know that would like to climb all of the 13ers usually scoff at the thought of doing an unranked peak, unless it is combined with something else that is ranked. Bluebird could tell you about that. ;)
I think they call it efficiency in peak bagging or something. I'm not sure if that is a rule that Darcy has or not (because I didn't read his list of rules).

That's reads like a hipster skier attitude. You fit in. ;)

That's because he points at a peak, makes up a name like "knobbly", and puts it on his list. Therefore no one has heard of *that* peak

benners, lordhelmut? You guys must be thinking of this list by now.


I'd be down with this list!

I finished the 14ers in 1999; the 55 that I recognize. Then I said no more lists except the "fun list."
