The following list of the mountains in Glacier National Park that are 9000 feet or higher with 400 feet or more of prominence was created for two reasons. First, to establish a list for myself or others who want to try to summit them all. Second, I was unable to find a good comprehensive list available and felt the need to publish one. The Glacier Mountaineering Society publishes a list of all named peaks in Glacier, but doesn't include some non-named one's. Additionally, I wanted to add a method for classifying a peak and chose a 400 foot prominence level. Picking a set prominence level certainly alters the size of the list. Had I chosen 300 feet, the list would obviously grow, 500 feet and it would shrink. The most notable mountain eliminated at 400 feet is Cracker Peak (9,833') which would be 11th on a 300 foot prominence list. Based on feedback from other SP users, I decided 400 was the way to go, primarily due to the fact that nearly all USGS quads in this area use 80 foot contours - thus, you ensure there are 5 lines between peak and ridge.
"But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live. Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom. Only a person who risks is free. The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; and the realist adjusts the sails."
