14ers

14ers (fourteeners) — mountains higher than 14 ⁠000 ⁠ft / 4 ⁠267 ⁠m with at least 300 ⁠ft / 91 ⁠m of topographic prominence.

According to the Mountaineering Club of Alaska, it is standard in Alaska to use a 500-foot (150 m) prominence rule rather than a 300-foot (91 m) rule. It helps to filter out some unnamed subpeaks of Denali and other less known summits. This is the most precise list of fourteeners as their prominences and elevations were meticulously calculated and triple checked by hand on high precision 1 arc second Digital Elevation Models.

By the above mentioned rules there are 77 fourteeners in the United States. The distribution of 14ers among the states is the following:

  1. Colorado has the most of any single state — 53 mountains above 14000 ft
  2. Alaska is in second place with 16 peaks
  3. California — 8 fourteeners
  4. Washington — 2 fourteeners
