Notes by Gerry Roach

  1. Our U.S. Lower 48 Ultra climbs
    Gerry Roach’s totals: 72 ascents; 49/58 overall
    Jennifer Roach’s totals: 60 ascents; 36/58 overall
    Gerry and Jennifer’s combined total as of 9/30/13: 132 ascents

  2. There are 58 summits on this list. The original Mount Saint Helens was an Ultra, but the volcano lost this status when it blew up on May 18, 1980, the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. We list the original peak, which Gerry climbed, for historic reference.

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

  4. All maps listed are USGS 7.5 minute quads unless otherwise indicated.
