Walkhighlands is a pretty great resource for Scottish hiking and peakbagging.

The other list is 192 peaks over 5000 feet in southern California which is kind of a to-do list for hikers down there.

I see there are websites listing both.

Montgomery, white, and Shasta?? Are those the 3 that aren’t in the sierras??

Right to the beautiful point

The highest CA peaks not in the Sierra (and over 13,200' elevation) are White, Shasta, White Mountains Peak 13615, Dubois, and Montgomery.

Also, the Sierra Club's Hundred Peaks Section List expanded decades ago, it's up to 280 peaks or so (depending on which peaks are suspended due to access and/or safety issues).

For a state-specific, round-number-eleveation-achieving list of significant length, there is the New Hampshire 4000 footers:

http://4000footers.com/nh.shtml

There are 48 of them, and if I ever move back to New England, I would do them. There's also the equivalent of Centennials- 100 highest.

There's also the grid- climbing every one of them in every month of the year:

http://48x12.com/members.php

which I don't think anyone has done here, but I wouldn't put it past someone trying.

The idea of doing Mt. Washington in the winter is as insane as doing a hard Class 4 in the winter, IMO.
One's 13er list should be longer than one's 14er list. There are like 10x more of them afterall.

Mt Washington in winter is pretty tame from the West (Cog RR) side. Both the Ammonoosuc Ravine and Jewell Trails offer fairly safe passage (there are a few historical avy paths near the Ammo though). It's honestly not any harder than many of the "easy/moderate" 14ers in winter - it's a basic walk-up with some steep sections but with typically windier and cloudier weather than is common in the winter out here (temps are comparable). The East side (Tucks, Huntington and the other ravines) is a different beast in winter though, yes.

I'm not aware of any CO 14er gridders, but I'm pretty sure there's a few members here that are getting there. Having done ~65% of the NH grid before moving to CO and personally knowing many of the completers, I will say that I will be FAR more impressed with an (inevitable) 14er grid completion!

I think Homie was getting close, as was Brad McQueen.

At the risk of necroposting, Sierra Nevada mountaineering lists are almost always based less in elevation chasing like Colorado and more in broader peaks lists . The most famous one is the Sierra Peaks Section list of 247 mountains in the Sierra Nevada, which is an extremely robust list of the best quality mountains of the Sierra and generally the gold standard for stuff to pursue in that range. It doesn't incorporate all of the 13ers, but it gets quite a few of them, and those peaks under 13K that are included are almost always the best-of-the-best (e.g. Cathedral Peak, Mt. Starr King, Mt. Conness, Whorl Mountain, Tehipite Dome...). It also includes lots of "alpinistic" objectives that might not have much prominence but are absolutely major mountaineering objectives in their own right (e.g. Starlight Peak, Polemonium Peak, Mt. Cocoran, Disappointment Peak, Thunderbolt Peak, Mt. Dade, Dragon Peak).

Some people don't like it because of how subjective it is, but I prefer that over lists solely based in elevation or prominence because you can assume that any peak is at least going to be "good". There isn't a website to the same level of robustness as 14ers.com, but the Sierra Peaks Section site of the Sierra Club's LA Chapter has a ton of resources and route-specific Scrambler Ratings that are absolutely amazing.

edit- and for other sites, Peakbagger.com is pretty much the go-to for a lot of California peakbagging. There's a selection of older and younger Sierra Nevada mountaineers who post pretty much all of their routes there, or at least GPX tracks. Lots of cool and unique link-ups that aren't mentioned in the main guidebooks (e.g. RJ Secor's "High Sierra" book) or SummitPost.
