Highpointing can be a dangerous and strenuous activity. Some highpoints are major mountains which require mountaineering skills, proper equipment, experience with route finding and weather, knowledge of emergency procedures, and a respect for the outdoor world. This pursuit requires extensive road travel. Be prepared. Plan ahead. Research each visit. Do not attempt any peak in adverse conditions or beyond your capability.
Every experienced member has a list of peaks on which they have turned around. This is an accepted and respected aspect of the sport. The highpoint will always be there for another day!
