Sam,



Boulder Peak, number 100 on your list, is on SummitPost.

Also I noticed you have added an "A" and "B" to some of the mountains. What is the significance?

Mike, the Boulder Peak link has been added. I grabbed this info from elsewhere and it's been some time since I did so my memory may not serve me perfectly, but I believe the A and B are simply added when there are multiple peaks in the state with the same name.

The Red Mtn that is linked on this page is not the Red Mtn 9411 which is on the prominence list. It appears that the linked Red Mtn is 10070 and it is a subpeak of Table Mtn. FWIW.

Eric, I removed the Red Mountain link from the prominence list, thanks for alerting me to the discrepancy.
