NB/e: Ballard is not on Bulger List because of a map error. Ballard elevation is an estimate.
Peaks with the same elevation are given the same rank.

AMPHITHEATER MOUNTAIN 8358' P758

SNOWFIELD PEAK 8347' P2907
from NE, on Colonial. Neve Glacier dominates the scene. In retrospect, this was my first Top 100 Peak, done on July 4, 1965 with medical school classmate, Joel Wilson (Jay) Baker, Jr. Snowfield was the first summit that Gary Mellom and I ever climbed together (September 3, 1966), and it was also the first peak that Russ Kroeker and I teamed up on (June 7, 1980). Russ introduced me to the Top 100 List here, and that year became the first person to finish all 100 Big Boys, six years before the second to complete. We came up the ridge between Ladder Creek and the Skagit River from Newhalem, climbed Snowfield, and exited down Neve Creek to Thunder River (Creek). Not a lot of traffic on those routes.

MOUNT BALLARD 8340' P780
The north summit of Ballard shown here is surveyed at 8301 feet. This photo was taken from the clearly higher southern "8280+" contour (per map) summit, so the true summit of Ballard is now estimated at about 8340 feet, awaiting an accurate measurement. I was going to call it 8350, but that would rank it higher than Snowfield, and I wasn't going to do that to a Backyard peak.
