The Highpointers Club doesn’t have a definitive online guide. There are plenty of books available at the Highpointers Merc including guidebooks by HPC members: Holmes, Wingers, and Zumwalt. Sources with current information are two interactive sites: summitpost.org and wikipedia.org. Summitpost is the definitive choice among climbers, although wikipedia has some amazing information on the mountains. The Highpointers Club maintains that the USGS Elevations and Distances is the official source for the Club. More details about adjustments to this list are described in “State Highpoints Recognized by the Club“.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any suggestions for enhancing this guide.
