The 13ers chart (especially the member ascents) being sortable like the 14ers chart.

Bill, please amend the following:
Bring back TallGrass. It became evident in a recent thread that he's missed. The forum has spoken!
And just think, reinstating him would only add to your whiteboard duties!
FREE TallGrass!
I'll sign that petition! (Sorry Bill)

Add the 74 List Finishers to this field, please. LoJ shows six 74 Finishers, and one at 73.
The LoJ list doesn't quite line up, though. It has the Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness HP instead of Sunlight Spire, which is a pretty dramatic difference in list difficulty. I'm the only one on LoJ to have recorded ascents of all 75 points: the 74 listed on 14ers.com (including the Spire) + the Wilderness HP.
Good catch. That is a significant distinction.

LoJ also includes a separate "Huerfano County HP" summit a few steps over from the Blanca Pk summit with 0' prominence. I summited this silly highpoint when I walked over to get better pictures of the Lindsey side of the Sierra Blanca. I forgot to log my "S Little Bear" ascent on LoJ from earlier this month (don't worry, I have lots of proof :mrgreen: ), so I'm now in the 74 summit club on LoJ (attached - LoJ_capture_002.PNG). However, this List carries the criteria of >0' prominence, which excludes that "Huerfano County HP".

LoJ still carries the now-outdated 13,995' elevation for Sunlight Spire, so it doesn't make the lists. It's not included in the list populated without 300'+ prominence in the search feature, which does include the "Huerfano County HP" (attached - LoJ_capture_001.PNG).

However, I do know that TakeMeToYourSummit also finished the 14ers.com version of the list of 74 recently, so there's at least 2 of us on the record. Does anyone know of others?
I'm sure there's more than two 74 Finishers according to the list on this site, even if they don't keep their list here. It doesn't appear that Britt found his rope-gun for Sunlight Spire, yet.

It’d be interesting to see who’s done the spire this year, probably 1/3 of the people are on social media. I met a group coming back on my first purg trip (for my finisher) and a group of 5 had climbed the spire. Really cool guys.. if y’all are on here shoot me a PM

The Spire sees several ascents a year, I'm sure. While the Spire is an inspiring alpine climb for a number of climbers, I'd wager the overlap of those that also bother to summit "S Bross" and "S Wilson" is pretty niche.

South bross is the equivalent to blue balls imo. I forget but someone on here did the spire in winter and that was an inspiring report fosho

I'm not sure it is an aspiring alpine climb. It's a long way to schlep lots of gear for very little climbing. It's a peak baggers goal, and most peak baggers can't hack it (myself included, although I have a goal to go back and do it in proper style).

as long as we're making requests, it'd be great to have the tricentennials on the 14ers map

Yes to the tri's being broke out.
Cotton, you must be headed for your next set after finishing the bi's?

Capt, it was furthermore & dannyG that did the winter spire. Furthermore has the report.

A fair point: it's a long approach for 40-50' of actual climbing. I just personally know a climber who is interested in the idealization of a crack climb at ~14,000', but has no interest in wandering around ridgelines looking for "W Evans" and the like. I would guess there are others. YMMV
