What is the Sierra Peak Section?
In 1955, the Sierra Club created a list of notable High Sierra peaks. Over the years the list evolved to include 247 peaks and is commonly known as the Sierra Peak Section. The list is made of 15 Emblem Peaks, considered to be the most iconic peaks, 35 Mountaineers Peaks, noted for technical or scrambling challenges, and 197 general peaks. Those that pursue the task of climbing these peaks are often called peak baggers, and count myself among them.
I hope to finish the Sierra Peak Section list by the time I am 75, but it may take me until 90 at a pace I’ve been going over the past few years. I’m hold this goal loosely :)
