List of mountain lists

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Perhaps the first of what would become many notable mountain lists around the world was Sir Hugh Munro’s catalogue of the Munros, the peaks above 3,000’ elevation in Scotland.[1] Once defined the list became a popular target for what became known as peak bagging, where the adventurous attempted to summit all of the peaks on the list.[2]

Over time the peaks on such lists grew more challenging, with perhaps the eight-thousanders as the most notable (as of June 2019, a winter completion of all 14 eight-thousanders has still not been completed). Other extreme examples are the Seven Summits, defined as the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.[3]

An ever-growing collection of peak lists is maintained and published on mountaineering-related websites.[4]

Worldwide

Europe

British Isles

The hills of Britain and Ireland are classified into various lists for 'peak-bagging' purposes. Among the better-known lists are the following:

North America

Canada

Mexico

United States

Central America

Guatemala

South America

The standard list for the major peaks of the Andes is the list of 6000 m peaks as first compiled by John Biggar in 1996 and listed in his Andes guidebook.[10] This list currently stands at 102 peaks, with no known completers.

Asia

China

Japan

Indonesia

  • List of ribus, peaks Indonesia with at least 1,000 metres (3,281 ft) of topographic prominence, known as the Ribus.

Taiwan

Australia

Popular peak-bagging challenges in Australia include the State 8: the highest peak in each of the six states and two territories (excluding Australia's external territories).[11]

The Abels are a group of peaks in Tasmania over 1100 metres above sea level and separated from other mountains by a drop of at least 150 metres on all sides. Named after Abel Tasman, the first European to sight Tasmania.
