Topic - Alps 4000m peaks

jthallen - on 21 Oct 2013
Known self-certified British completers of the Collomb list (52 Alpine mountains above 4000m) amounted to 16 at the start of my investigations in 2012. I have discovered 2 more this year, 2013. The full 18 are: Eustace Thomas (in 1933 with guide Josef Knubel), Will McLewin, Peter Fleming, Brian Cosby, John Mercer, Mike Pinney, Jeff Harris, Kate Ross, Martin Moran, Simon Jenkins, Colin Beechey, Dave Wynne-Jones, John Higham, Dave Penlington, Denis Mitchell, Les Swindin, and the 2 new names Professor Harold Taylor in 1985, and David Litherland.
How many names are not included above, ie British, self-certified, completer of the Collomb 52? The Collomb list with criteria is still available (was in 2012) from Robin Collomb, c/o West Col Publications, Reading, Berks. price 10 plus postage 2.00.
There are other lists, eg by Richard Goedeke, Martin Moran, and more likely to become the standard list in future, namely the UIAA list of 82. No Brit has completed this list, yet - see www.club4000.it
Of course just as much fun can be had without lists, but I just thought it would be armchair fun to ask the question.
