Lists are great. They give you direction and keep you motivated to cross things off, and for new hikers and mountain climbers, they can be one of the most exciting parts of climbing mountains. Whether it's because they're the highest peaks in a specific region, because they add up to a specific elevation goal, are all part of a single speech, or they're just someone's favorites, collecting mountains into a single to-do list and climbing them one by one (commonly known as "peak bagging") is one of the best ways to get familiar with a new area, learn about new peaks, and climb lots of spectacular mountains. For everyone from the new hiker to the mountain professional, here are some of the best peak bagging checklists to start ticking away at.
