List Description

Note that the unranked peaks on this list have less than 2000 feet of clean prominece, but they do have 2000 feet or more of optimistic prominence. These unranked peaks are "error range" summits, and some of them may have a very good chance of being over the cutoff. Some climbers elect to ascend these unranked peaks for the sake of completeness.


  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; list compiled 1999 by Edward Earl, Andy Martin, and Aaron Maizlish.
  • List generation helped by Edward Earl's WinProm program.
  • Posts made to the Yahoo Prominence Group online forum, especially by Martin and Maizlish.
  • Prominence values in this list may not agree 100% with sources, due to different interpretations of key col spot elevations and out-dated peak elevations in the PBC Database.
