Good Addition

I really like this addition, adds something for the # chasers. One question, what exactly is meant by "Parent"?

Re: Good Addition

Also reffered to as the nearest topographic highest peak, is the closest peak higher than the peak of interest along a connecting ridge. The col between the two peaks is the key col and used to determine the prominence of the peak. Should I add the following link to the table or define the terms in my page?Parent

Re: Good Addition

It might be nice for some of us who don't know all these terms.

Great List!

Thanks for adding this to SP, along with your CA 14ers list. Accurate and consistent with what is actually ranked and what is simply named (using the 300 foot rule). Good reference for future climbs. By the way, I enjoyed the Little Bear trip w/ you--sorry I couldn't join you on Ellingwood/Blanca.

Re: Great List!

The Little Bear trip was definitely an experience.
Hope all is well in VA.

have the parent/miles from parent column? Seems to me to make your table more confusing. Otherwise great page! Cheers!

Re: Why

The saddle between the peak and parent determines the prominence, which dictates whether a peak is ranked. The miles from parent is also referred to as isolation. This is a parameter that is of interest to many peak baggers.

The Beaver

whose parent is Longs, appears to be 14, 056 feet over the notch of 13,920 giving it a prominence of 136 feet should be included I think. Figures are from Google Earth.

Re: The Beaver

I've added it. It appears that the most widely accepted name is "Southeast Longs" and the route that travels over it is called The Beaver. Thanks.

Mt. Rainier not attached

Mt. Rainier appears to not be attached to this page for some reason.
