Packs and Peaks 1: Peakbagging

Get lost in the endurance sport of Peakbagging by explaining how it works, what gear you need, and where you can go to get lost racing it.

What the heck is Peakbagging?

Peakbagging is an activity in which hikers, hillwalkers, fast packers, and mountaineers attempt to reach the summits of a collection of peaks.

Usually those above some height or prominence in a particular region, or having a particular feature.

Sometimes this is also called hill bagging, mountain bagging, Munro bagging or simply “bagging”, peak bagging goes beyond just reaching a mountain summit.

Why do Peakbagging?

Peakbagging is not like your traditional mountain climbing expeditions.

It is an endurance sport that blends the core elements of hiking, ultrarunning, and orienteering, but avoids the technical skills of a hardcore rock climber.

To be a peakbagger, all you need to do is have the passion and desire to want to collect a series of peaks from an abstract list.

The goal is to not to summit only the mountain, but to climb all the peaks around the mountain in the fastest, not hardest, way possible.

And have your only reason for doing it be: “because it’s there”.

Time to go tag and bag some peaks!

And that is the endurance sport of Peakbagging.
