On here, 14ers.com

On a kinda ridiculous spreadsheet that has way too many columns for data and tabs. One for 13ers/14ers (including approaches, fails, successes, and all sorts of data and notes), one for "regular" hikes.

Lots of neat tools:

14ers.com is great for beta on 13/14ers and with the list option, creates somewhat of a "resume" that is good for linking up with similarly experienced folks
LoJ and Peakbagger are both great tools for getting insights on lower elevation things. Peakbagger has options for adding a lot of information about each hike (that I do in a spreadsheet) for the "splitters" and it does enable users to contact each other (this has led to finding a great hiking partner). I like LoJ a little better as a checklist but both work fine in that regard and are repositories for my "history" as well as sources of gpx tracks on some pretty obscure things out there (places where few people venture to).

Caltopo is fantastic as a planning tool.

I'm still using stone tablets. But good chisels are hard to find.

The Peakbagger app syncs with both Peakbagger.com and LoJ, so I use that. It also shows me pretty maps with red dots that I get to turn green. It's my favorite phone game! :-)

PEAKERY! Easy to use and I like the lists of peak challenges.

LOJ only. Combines nicely with my projects of wilderness area peaks, Front Range >12k list, etc. Like that it is easy to see remaining peaks. Also easy to jump out to Excel.

Thanks for all your responses! Looks like about half responders use only 14ers.com, a quarter use mainly LoJ, and smaller percentages have varied responses, or don't track their peaks.

Excel spreadsheets are a lot more common for tracking than I'd thought! Other websites I hadn't really considered for tracking are Peakery and Summitpost.

I mainly use ListsofJohn for my tracking, though I've tried to keep 14ers.com in sync for any 13ers+ that I've done lately.

If there was sarcasm here, I might have missed it. But John Kirk has quite an impressive peak resume! (https://listsofjohn.com/m/John+Kirk) He and his wife Alyson have climbed every peak above 10,000 feet in Colorado. For his website, he spent 12 years pouring over USGS quad maps and collaborating with others (including some whizzy computer programs) to compile a complete dataset of every single ranked peak in the United States, including Alaska! (https://listsofjohn.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1211). True, my wife said the website looks early 2000's-ish, but it definitely serves its purpose (I think he created it in 2005ish, so that makes sense). I think 14ers.com has been around for a decent amount of time as well, though it got a make-over sometime in the last several years.

yes, it’s an old-looking site and it’s not super intuitive, but if you take some time to learn its ins and outs its a completely invaluable resource. handy progress maps, trip reports for obscure peaks, multiple map layers, “near me” tool that I love, and ridiculously extensive.

I do here, loj and peakbagger. If tracking down 13ers and 14ers, this site has a lot of beta. Limited predominately to colorado though, lists are strictly 13k+ in colorado. Loj also has great beta. And has great beta for lots (dare i say almost all) US peaks. Peakbagger has international peaks, for those that like to venture out of country. If i didn't want to track international summits, i wouldn't bother with peakbagger. Although, people there have always been quick to respond to me with conditions or access questions, so that is a perk.

The tower made of white rock right after the knife on Kelso ridge! the exposure on both sides and elevation right above 14k make for quite the hero shot. From that angle it kinda looks like you’re on top of a major distinct summit.
