2018 Summits & Highpoints

I had a great summer of peak-bagging in the mountains this year and made it to the top of a lot of peaks. Earlier in the year I had set myself a goal of climbing at least 25 new peaks this summer, but I quickly blew past that number so I bumped it up to 35. I’m happy to report that I finished off the summer climbing exactly 40 new peaks, summits, and high points! I thought it would be nice to post this recap of my summer in the mountains and you can click on each mountain to see the full trip report.
