Remember, a lone amateur built the Ark, but
a large group of professionals built the Titanic.

Notes by Gerry Roach

  1. Our North American country highpoint climbs
    Gerry Roach’s totals: 17 ascents; 9/10 overall
    Jennifer Roach’s totals: 2 ascents; 2/10 overall
    Gerry and Jennifer’s combined total as of 2/10/16: 19 ascents

  2. There are 10 summits on this list.

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

  4. 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 North American country summit.
    The Isolation is the great circle distance to the Grand Parent.

  5. Prominence for Doyle’s Delight is not yet available.
