Why would some dutch guys make a list of 3000ers in Switzerland? The are multiple reasons, but let us sum up the main reasons:

1. A list based purely on altitude would not be fair to lower mountains.
2. A list purely based on personal reference is very subjective. For instance, someone who hasn't been to Wallis would not have seen the impressive view of the Bietschhorn. And vica versa, someone who lives beneath the Bietschhorn would probably overrate the importance of the mountain.

Our Method

The score is based on:

Isolation (40%) (= the distance to the nearest higher peak)
Google Hits (40%)
Lodewijk's Personal Choice (10%)
Jurgen's Personal Choice (10%)

The peak with the highest amount of google hits gets rank 1 in the list (Piz Medel). The one with the lowest amount of hits 39. Rank 1 gets 39 points, rank 2 gets 38 points.....rank 39 gets 1 point. The same is valid for the other factors...

Isolation and Google hits count both for 40%, Our personal choice both count for 10% which is a total of 100%

We used 39 mountains in the calculations, that is why the points go up to 39. Only the best 20 are shown in the list.
