Notes by Gerry Roach

  1. Our Continent Summit climbs
    Gerry Roach’s totals: 15 ascents; 10/10 overall
    Jennifer Roach’s totals: 2 ascents; 2/10 overall
    Gerry and Jennifer’s combined total as of 11/15/05: 17 ascents

  2. There are 10 summits on this list.

  3. This is the Roach version of the fabled Seven Summits list.
    As you can see, it covers ten peaks.

  4. In this list, “Rank” is Rank by Elevation, not Rank by Prominence.

  5. The Grand Parent is not the same as the Parent peak used in other lists.
    In this list, the Grand Parent is the closest, higher continent summit.

  6. North Latitude is plus, South Latitude is minus.
    West Longitude is plus, East Longitude is minus.
