Four men were honored Saturday night by The Mountaineers for climbing 100 peaks in Mount Rainier National Park during a celebration at the organization’s complex in Seattle.
The list of peaks range from Pigeon Peak (4,300 feet above sea level) to Little Tahoma (11,138) but does not include Mount Rainier. All of the men have also climbed the 14,411-foot mountain.
The book encourages readers to register on the website peakbagger.com. Here The Mountaineers can track the progress on the list and award medallions to those who climb 25, 50 and 100 of the peaks. A medallion is also awarded for those who summit the 15 peaks that can be reached by hiking.
According to peakbagger.com, 19 people have climbed 50 or more of the peaks and 44 have completed 25 or more. Six people have earned the 15 hiking peaks medallion.
Eisenberg said he hopes the medallion presentation party will become an annual event.
