Mt. Rainier
Mt. Rainier, the Most Prominent 14er in the Lower 48.

Overview

So what excites one to climb, the Elevation or the Prominence of a peak? How about doing a combination of both? You can by climbing the 14ers in the Contiguous 48 with 2,000 feet or more of Prominence. Colorado may have 54 14ers, but only 20 of these are special enough to have at least 2,000 feet of Prominence.

There are a total of 25 14ers with 2,000 feet or more of Prominence. Twenty of these are located within Colorado. Four are in California, and just one in Washington State. Only 7 of these 25 peaks are Ultras. This list puts in perspective, that even the highest peaks in the Lower 48 are not necessarily the most prominent mountains.
