List Description

Canada’s vast northern reaches harbor many high-isolation peaks, many of them very obscure and difficult to get near, let alone climb. It is likely that no one has been to more than 10 of these summits.


Thanks to Andrew Kirmse, who created and ran software for calculating isolation from digital elevation models, and to Jonathan de Ferranti, who helped with high-quality DEM data. Many of the isolation values for peaks on this list were determined by their process and then map checked.
