Nice list Scott- Layne Bracy and I have complied all 300' prominence peaks for Utah and we have the same count of 12k+. We're going to use your nicknames for the unnamed and I'll list you as a reference for 12k+ on my site. One note - La Sal Peak is an official name - you can find it in a GNIS search or Topozone.

Thanks. I changed La Sal peak to an official name.

Kind of strange that so many of Utah's highest peaks still don't have official names.

I'm glad it was verified. I made this list from scratch and hate to admit how long it took me. Unlike CO there were no previous list avaialable and I had to start from scratch by looking at every topo map!

If any of these unnamed peaks happen to be within an official wilderness then they will most probably not ever receive official names. I personally like this hard line stance by the USGS naming board since even naming things within a wilderness diminshes the wildernessness (wildernicity?) of the wilderness.

Yes, I'd agree the unnamed ratio is abnormally high compared to the 3 other states we've listed all 300' prominences and named peaks for. There is probably a reason, but it isn't obvious to me.

CO - 96 Named of top 100
WY - 70 Named of top 100
NM - 63 Named of top 100
