Favorite 13er in checklist

Post by 9patrickmurphy » Wed Sep 02, 2020 8:59 pm

I think it would be interesting if the checklist feature had the ability to designate a "favorite 13er" in the same way that you can designate a favorite 14er. This would serve no practical purpose, but might serve as a conversation starter for people trying to find climbing partners, and I think saying what your favorite 13er is could tell you a lot more about someone's climbing preferences than a favorite 14er.

Yes! I completely agree--this would be a great feature.

There are just so many 13ers, I don't know how I could pick a favorite! I might be able to do a top 10. :-D

Exactly! I can’t choose between Ypsilon and Vestal. That’s like having a favorite cat. I love Redcloud and Sunshine equally.

Oh yeah that'd be a tough choice.
I'd love to see people's top 5-10 lists though, while we're here...
I would have forgotten about Ypsilon if the above post hadn't mentioned it. I remember enjoying Fool's Peak quite a bit, and Adams had great summit views. But I haven't really even made a dent in the 13ers and I'm sure the best ones are all in the San Juans. Next year I'm hoping for a week long Weminuche sweep.
The days I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have really good days.

Meeker, Jagged, Half Peak, Adams, Turret, Pacific, Crystal, Jupiter, Ice, California ... I give up, too many favorites.

Dallas is my favorite so far. The Trinity Traverse was also a bunch of fun.
Consecutive months with at least one 14er, 37 months and counting...

Meeker from the iron gates. That downclimb off Meeker ridge's summit was more intense than anything I've experienced on 14er!
