State Highpoints

State Highpoints
Hiking & Climbing
State highpointing is climbing to the highest point in all 50 states. A lot of people get the desire to do this, mostly non-climbers. The majority of state highpointers I've met are from the Eastern U.S. They work their way out west, typically hiring a guide to get them up the more difficult ones. Denali in Alaska is a real stopper for many who then settle on 49. As a climber I've always found the highest mountain in every state to be an attractive goal. Since many states don't have mountains the highpointers goal became the highest point in every state not the highest mountain. One state even has its highpoint on the side of a mountain with the summit in a neighboring state. I'm taking my time to finish this list, especially now that I've done all the hard ones. I figure I got my lifetime to finish this list although sooner would be more satisfying. I'll slowly get them when I'm in the area doing other tourist things. Below are the trip report links. At the bottom is a map showing all the states I've completed so far with the year climbed.
