Exploring the beauty of the mountains through easy hikes and scrambles

MOUNTAIN LIST

This is a collection of summit ascents – many of them easy hikes but some of them moderate to difficult outings – all depending on weather conditions and your own routefinding and scrambling skills. What they all have in common is the simplicity of how these summits are attained: no technical gear is involved (other than perhaps an ice axe), no ropes or harnesses, just straightforward hiking and scrambling.

You can sort this list by any of the various table headers. Click on a mountain name to read the trip report and see some photos!
