Notes by Gerry Roach

  1. Our Mexico climbs in this elevation range
    Gerry Roach’s totals: 43 ascents; 12/12 ranked; 24/44 overall
    Jennifer Roach’s totals: 18 ascents; 10/12 ranked; 18/44 overall
    Gerry and Jennifer’s combined total as of 2/15/15: 61 ascents

  2. There are 44 summits on this list, of which 12 are hard ranked.

  3. For this list, I require that a ranked summit have at least 1,000 feet of Prominence.

  4. This list is a work in progress. I will add Information as I get it.
