High geohash achievement

From Geohashing

template:high geohash

This user earned the High geohash achievement
by reaching an altitude of {{{altitude}}} at the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]].

This ribbon is displayed by the people who have attended the geohash with the highest terrain elevation (that is, farthest from mean sea level, a.k.a. the geoid reference height). Geohashers who attended a high altitude geohash which is superseded by another at a higher altitude get to keep their ribbons; in other words, it is about having ever held the record (and in this respect it is a version of wikipedia:en:world altitude record (mountaineering) in the present day...still beatable since nobody's hashed Everest yet!).

Aerial geohashing is not eligible for this award. Neither is merely being "high on life", or on sex, drugs, or rock'n'roll.


If you did a geohash that fits in time and elevation sequence on this chart, insert your name, and take the ribbon. Please also update the "currently" number on the Achievements page.
