I'm put in the mind of Gary Coleman on the Simpsons observing that "three prawns are hardly a galaxy." While DP's prominence total is quite impressive, roughly 150 Longs Peak ascents, it seems an exaggeration say that that his new record "shattered" the previous when the new mark topped the old one by only about 2%. Shattered is however a fair term for what occurred in the Annual Peak Total category where Brian Kalet, triplem and John Kirk all far surpassed the previous standard with JK besting it by a remarkable 55%.

Yes, I could have picked "sets", "bests", or "beats", but I wanted a word that sounded a little more exciting.
