No problem, turns out tracking down the corrections are what took up a lot of the time. Downloading DEMs as well.

The presentation looks really good. Interesting to see the user totals, and, outside of Colorado, how low they are as far as top 100 per state. Not surprising though, with many of these peaks being both difficult and obscure.

Looks like we have a truly humbling and challenging list on our hands with this top 1000 steepest. Might just be the toughest list anyone has ever come up with. The highest completion % by anyone is Bob Packard at 9.1%.

Washington State takes up 27% of the list - I'm sure Eric, John Roper, Paul Klenke, and Bob Bolton will be proud. Lots of steep and tall faces there on peaks that may have a much less steep route, bringing up the average steepness. Using the least steep angle in 100m radius by descending score as the criteria more heavily favors AZ, CA, and UT with these states containing more peaks that have no easy line in any direction. The vast majority of the high-quality peaks in most states still show up in any event.

Cool deal to have this great info combined with LOJ. Any chance to have the feature included where we can search by descending distance from default coordinates?
