The 20th century ended at the end of year 2000, which is why summits from this year are included. The summits from 2001 are part of the 21st century, an era where thousands would reach the top in cumulative by the 2010s. The reason 2000 is included is because there was no year 0, so the year 2000 is 2000 years counting from year 1
