Peak Badges: Earn a special badge for each unique peak you summit. See all of your badges on your Badges page.
First Ascent Award: Only 1 available per peak. Goes to the first peakery member to log a successful summit of a peak. Snag this award and the peak will forever bear your name.
King of the Mountain Award: Only 1 available per peak. Summit a peak more times than any other member. Beware: this award can be lost!
Summit Steward: Summit a peak at least 5 times to become one of its Summit Stewards. As Steward of a peak, you’re encouraged to keep that peak’s info up-to-date on peakery and spread goodwill on your future climbs up the peak.
A note on Completion Radius
The Completion Radius is the radial distance from a member’s "home basecamp" to the nearest peak they have yet to summit. It encourages local adventures up peaks that may be overlooked. Note: a member’s home basecamp must be specified to calculate their Completion Radius.
Example: a member who has summited all peaks within 6 miles of Calgary, Alberta
A note on vertical gain, distance, and difficulty
peakery calculates your vertical gain and distance for various timeframes based on the GPS tracks you add to your summit logs. Only logs with GPS tracks are included in your totals. Add more of your GPS tracks to see these stats grow.
peakery also creates a difficulty breakdown of all of the peaks you’ve climbed based on the routes you took. For your climbs to be included in this breakdown, you must specify the routes you took in your summit logs AND these routes must have difficulty ratings in peakery. If a route is missing a difficulty rating, you can add it by going to the ‘edit’ page for that route. For now, peakery uses the Yosemite Decimal System (YDS) Class rating for all peaks; we plan to add more international rating systems in the future.
