Highpoints
and
Prominence Peaks
of the
United States

by
Scott Surgent

Welcome to my hiking and climbing page! This is a collection of my various reports dating back into the late 1980s and early 1990s. Anything that required some uphill effort is included here. My interests have varied, starting with the state highpoints, graduating to the county highpoints and more recently, the prominence mountains - mainly in the southwest United States. I hike and/or climb whatever is available and convenient. I have arranged this website by state and from there, if appropriate, by county. You can surf by randomly picking a state seeing what's there. For a chronological listing, see the Complete Highpointing Statistics page, linking from here or on the left side-bar. Other "theme" pages are also found on the left sidebar. Have fun, but remember to read the disclaimer below. (Note: these pages appear best in Internet Explorer, and less so in Firefox or Chrome. With other browsers, the fonts may be enlarged or not faithfully displayed, making for difficult-to-read pages.)
