(BASIC (5 Peaks), 10-Peaks, 15-Peaks, SENIOR (20 Peaks), MOUNTAINEER (25 Peaks))


These awards are qualified for by climbing various mountain peaks during backpacking treks, either on side, day hikes, or along the trail.  The awards represent a progression of increasingly more challenging accrued increments of 5 peaks climbed.   Only one peak may be climbed per day, and each increment of 5 peaks to qualify for each award must include a mix of moderate to strenuous climbs (at least 500', more typically 1,000' or more of vertical gain in elevation), with the mixes of climbs (usually 3 lesser and 2 greater) becoming progressively more challenging (moderate to difficult to strenuous to very strenuous) for the progressive awards.  (Lists of qualifying peaks can be reviewed with the High Adventure Team, with more information available upon request.)
