/ Alps 4000m peaks
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.
I always understood it was 50 genuinely separate mountains in any case.
Na, mate, never been near them. Don't do any of that nasty, cold, dangerous Alpine stuff, I prefer climbing walls myself.
Aha... red rag to a bull!
Speaking of cows, I ought to finish bringing that list up to date.
