Perhaps the first of what would become many notable mountain lists around the world was Sir Hugh Munro’s catalog of the Munros, the peaks above 3,000’ in Scotland). Once defined the list became a popular target for what became known as peak bagging, where the adventurous attempted to summit all of the peaks on the list. Over time the peaks on such lists grew more challenging. An example is the Seven Summits, defined as the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Some notable lists of mountains are shown below.
