Section 7. Peak List

  1. Maintenance of List The Section and its Mountain Records Committee shall maintain an HPS Peak List, which shall be published in the March issue of The Lookout if the List was changed during the preceding year.

  2. Changes in List Peak additions and deletions may only be made by a vote of the active members in the annual election. Changes in the details of the published Peak List, such as changes in altitudes, require approval by the Management Committee.

  3. Ballot Proposals Proposals for peak additions and deletions may be placed on the ballot in two ways:
    1. The Management Committee may authorize such a proposal; or
    2. A petition signed by at least twenty active members may direct such a proposal, if received by the Chair at least two weeks before the annual business meeting.
    Any Section member may sponsor a written proposal to the Management Committee for peak additions or deletions at least two months before the annual business meeting. If the Committee decides against the proposal it shall notify the sponsor at least one month before that meeting.

  4. Requirements for Peak Additions To be considered for addition to the Peak List a peak must meet the requirements listed below.
    1. The peak must be named on a USGS topographic map or USFS map, or must have been officially named by the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, or must have a recognized usage name, or may be named, as determined by the Management Committee, in honor of an individual who has made outstanding lifetime leadership or service contributions to the HPS.
    2. The peak must lie within Southern California, defined generally as south of the northern boundaries of San Bernardino, Kern, and San Luis Obispo Counties. In further detail:
      From the Pacific Coast eastward along the Mexican Border to the 116º meridian (just east of the San Diego County line);
      Northward on the 116º meridian to the 34½º parallel (through Apple Valley);
      Westward on the 34½º parallel to the 117½º meridian (east of the Los Angeles County line);
      Northward on the 117½º meridian to the San Bernardino/Inyo County line;
      Westward on the San Bernardino, Kern, and San Luis Obispo County lines to the coast;
      Southward along the coast to the Mexican Border.
    3. Summit elevation must be at least 5000 feet as shown on the latest USGS topographic map.
    4. Public access shall require no more than payment of small fees or obtaining simple permits.
    5. The peak should have features that give it some character. Examples are good view, attractive climb, interesting history, or prominence of the immediate summit area.
    6. The peak must have been led on a scheduled Section outing.

  5. Temporary Suspension of Peak By majority vote the Management Committee may suspend a peak from the Peak List for six months, and may remove such suspension at any appropriate time. Suspension will cause a peak to be ignored in applications for list completion achievements. Suspended peaks may be counted toward the 100 or 200 peak achievements, at the option of the applicant.
