The Summit Cheeseburger Project was started to encourage, enable, and document the consumption of a cheeseburger on every summit on earth.
I first took upon myself the challenge of contributing to this noble cause last summer with my summit of Electric Peak in Yellowstone National Park.
Recently I was visiting my newborn niece in Minnesota and grabbed a couple friends to introduce them to the cause. Our trip report can be viewed here:Apr 2, 2009 at 7:26 pm #1490855
Problem solved. I was just griping about the lack of variety I take for lunches when I hike. I stumbled into the Summit Cheeseburger Project thanks to your post. I'm excited to see that I still have a chance to document a peak in South Carolina! I'm thinking a black bean burger with horseradish mustard and pepper jack cheese… I can almost taste it!
Thanks – very cool link.Apr 2, 2009 at 9:09 pm #1490884
I look forward to seeing more BPL'ers doing cheeseburger summits. Chris Wallace also tells me he's going to do something in Georgia – you hear me Chris? I'm holding you to it now!
It's such a funny concept and for that I love it. We get so serious about extreme expeditions and what not that it's fun to cart along something totally silly like a cheeseburger and just have fun with a climb.

Can I participate even with a vegetarian Cheeseburger?Apr 3, 2009 at 4:32 am #1490925
That might have been the craziest trip report I have ever read. Full narrative, lots of alcohol and flat, flat, Minnesota.Apr 3, 2009 at 4:39 am #1490926

D*MM, Sam!. This is twice in one week I missed a chance for a great reply to BPL humor!
My first thought on seeing your new avatar was "Is that a slider in Sam's mouth? … naw, no way he could get a slider in Bozeman" But it was!
Can't say I've ever had one with cheese though. I dearly love cheese but Real Hikers (TM) eat their sliders straight up! And only when they have a good supply of shop towels (regardless of Clelland's advice:-)
I wonder if Sarbar could come up with a recipe for a Freezer Bag slider … Hikers Heaven!
Oh, while I'm no beer snob, I gotta ask … Miller? With a Leinies in the fridge?Apr 3, 2009 at 5:24 am #1490928

@dsmontgomeryLocale: one snowball away from big trouble
Very noble cause. :)
This reminds me of the "Pocket Burger" a buddy of mind introduced me to during our last ski trip. It's just like a regular burger, only it is served fresh from the pocket, mid-lift, during the latter part of a ski trip.Apr 3, 2009 at 9:49 am #1490972
I expect to hear Summit Cheeseburger reports from all of you this summer – and yes, Johan you can definitely do a veggie-burger!
The narrative was written by my best friend, Jon because he has the best memory for remembering precise details about things like ninja monkies and such.
Jim, I have no idea if I can get White Castle in Bozeman – I've never tried. But when I was at Len's Family Foods in my hometown of Stillwater, MN at 11:00pm on a Friday night planning for our "Great Adventure" it was the first package of frozen cheeseburgers I saw ; )
And to The beer afficianados out there I say, yes, my friends and I have an affinity for beer – good, bad, mediocre, quality, warm, cold, etc, etc, etc – we like it all!
