The Canadian Rockies list is a well-known and theoretically popular pursuit, although the overall difficulty of the peaks means that there are few completers. However, there is no universal consensus on which peaks are on the list, and no official club or governing body is responsible for its contents.
Surveyed summit elevations for many peaks, especially in Alberta, are not especially accurate, so there are a few peaks that may be on or off the list pending more accurate measurements. Also, there is no standard prominence cut-off for minor sub-peaks, so some versions of the list include minor bumps like Lunette, Rae, North Victoria, etc.
The list on this page shows the 50 peaks with an elevation over 11,000 feet and a clean prominence (rise from col) of 300 feet. This site also has a "club list" based on the 54 peaks in Bill Corbett's definitive guidebook.
All versions of the list include some very challenging peaks that make completing it a job for experienced alpinists who have taken time to become experts in the loose rock and other hazards offered by these mountains. Mount Alberta and Mount Robson are usually cited as the toughest objectives.
