Summitsbase Home Page        

This web site is aimed primarily at Radio Amateurs who participate in our Summitsbase HuMPs Awards (HEMA), our Summit to Summit Awards, or Wainwrights on the Air (WOTA), etc. See info below under 'This Website'.

Summitsbase Latest News, Reports & Info

The 'Latest News, Report & Information' is, in essence, a 'rolling' News page. News items will appear as soon as possible after they have been received from contributors but will 'drop off' the page eventually and will appear in the Rolling News Archive.


HEMA is a program for both activators and chasers) based on HuMPS (excluding Marilyns i.e. excluding SOTA summits). This program started on January 1st 2012 and only HuMPS activated or chased from that date count toward this schene. For full details click on the photograph.

Summits Information

The main WiKi is where HuMPs (excluding Marilyns) information is stored (view by 'clicking' on photo). This information is constantly being updated and you are encouraged to contribute by adding routes and/or extra or 'missing' information. However, when adding routes, use your own information and please do not just copy the routes from other sources.


Flickr Photographs

There are literally many thousands of photographs of summits, summit activators and portable equipment on summits that you can look at. You can look here for the Flickr Summitsbase HuMPs group or here for the original Flickr SOTA group.

The main Wiki is a repository for information that may be useful for people ascending summits that are HuMPs (but not Marilyns).

The site opened in March 2008 but there will inevitably be some sections of information that are not as detailed as others (e.g. routes, parking spots for individual summits etc). Users who are already registered can edit the pages using a normal web browser. New registrations are however no longer being accepted as in due course the relevant information from this website will be transferred to the HEMA website.

The site administrators and contributors do not accept any responsibility for your safety or for the accuracy of any of the routes/information shown on this website. Please ensure that you have the correct knowledge and equipment to keep yourself safe in the hills and mountains.
