/ Munros, Corbetts, Grahams etc. A British obsession?
Colorado 14ers, Alpine 4000ers, everywhere there are hills there are lists.
Fascinating. Love that, and the linked to Angry Corrie article
Isn't that just one man collecting peaks, rather than thousands of people working their way through specific lists?
It seems to me a good idea to have a drill that helps you to get away from going again and again to the same old places. There are plenty of bits of Scotland I probably wouldn't have discovered were it not for Munro's tables.
Mind you, there are also bits I'd love to go to, but have never been to, where the reason probably has something to do with chasing down Munros instead! Two obvious examples are Kintyre and the Uists.
