SUMMITS

By 2008, the time for climbing and mountaineering had passed. So we moved on to hiking, backpacking, rafting, and other, less vertical, less gravity-afflicted outdoor pursuits. Here, just for the record, are the summits (but not any hikes or backpacks) attained (or attempted) between 1970 and 2008.
