Sizing Up The Climbs On Various Mountains

Alan, over at has climbed some of the most popular and interesting mountains around the World, and has put together this handy little comparison chart to help us understand how they stack-up to one another in various categories.

The list of mountains includes Rainier, Denali, Ama Dablam, Aconcagua, Broad Peak, Cho Oyu, and Everest. Along with the mountains, he lists their heights, current times, recommend routes, and comments on “overall difficulty” as well as training, and special gear you may need for each of them. It’s an excellent guide for a quick look at how they are similar and different, and offers nice insight into each peak. Cool stuff.
