Poly Bagging

We have launched a new Hall of Fame, for repeat ascents of the same hill, reflecting the likelihood that you will walk more locally given Covid 19 restrictions. These are the criteria for entry:

  • Your hill(s) or mountain(s) can be anywhere in the world, and of any height, provided they have at least 30 metres/98.4ft of prominence.
  • You need at least 100 ascents of the peak to enter the first level of the Hall of Fame.
  • You need to have kept a record of your ascents – no rough estimates.
  • You need to put a bit of effort into reaching the top - no driving to the summit and strolling to reach it!

2020 is the first year we are collecting poly bagging data. The 2019 RHSoc baseline has now been published: https://www.rhsoc.uk/poly-bagging-hall-of-fame-2019/

The full international poly bagging data compiled by Mark Trengove is available at: https://sites.google.com/site/europeaklist/polybaggers-register-hall-of-fame/poly-baggers-register-2019 

Please contact us on Hof@rhsoc.uk if you would like to be enrolled and we will pass on your details to Mark Trengove, the Hofmeister – even if you have not yet reached 100.
