Longs Peak
Colorado is one of the most beautiful states in the United States. This was one of the last major states on Summitpost not to have a page dedicated to its 2,000 foot prominence peaks. In the lower 48 Colorado ranks 7th. Nevada, California, Montana, Idaho, Utah, and Washington have more. Colorado is able to boast 80 P2K peaks and 2 Error Range peaks. Most avid hikers in Colorado are in competition to climb 14ers and 13ers. Only 20 of Colorado's 53 14ers have at least 2,000 feet of Prominence. As far as 13ers there are 18 with at least 2,000 feet of prominence. There is also 26 County High Points on this list as well.

There are some other pages on Summitpost dedicated to Prominent peaks in Colorado. I made this list to help Summitpost members and others who are insterested in focusing on Colorado's 2,000 foot prominent peaks. At the time of writing this 64 of the 82 peaks have Summitpost pages. Colorado gets a lot of new mountain pages on Summitpost on a monthly basis. I'm putting a goal out there for Summitpost members: for all of Colorado's P2Ks to have a Summitpost page by the end of 2012 (except Ute Peak, since it is on an Indian Reservation). There are some very avid Summitpost members posting pages in Colorado. Does this sound attainable?

I will be keeping an eye out to make this page stay as updated as possible.

Resources used to help with this page: Peaklist and Peakbagger.

Here is a map of the Colorado P2Ks.

To date there is one known person who has climbed all of Colorado's Prominence Peaks: Bob Packard To see the list of others progress on this list check out Peakbagger.

Summit Peak

Nice new page! Summit Peak (#29 on prominence list) is now back on SummitPost, after a long stint in purgatory.

Children refers to the set of objects that logically fall under a given object. For example, the Aconcagua mountain page is a child of the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits.' The Aconcagua mountain itself has many routes, photos, and trip reports as children.
