Neptune’s List

Below are 140 local & nearby alpine rock climbs 5.9 or easier that are recommended by Neptune Mountaineering.  Just for grins, I thought I’d see which ones I haven’t done…I’m always looking for some classics that I’ve somehow missed.  Since I’m looking for climbs to do now, I didn’t bother to include the harder routes that I barely used to be able to do (and will never do again) or that those that I never could do.

Green means that I still need to do it (and I may have hot linked route info); Red means that I have already done it (and when).  I’ve included a link to my trip report if I have prepared one, even if it isn’t for the initial climb on the route.

Holy Cow!  I have found a bunch of climbs to do!  Thanks.
