/ 50 Highest Peaks - Interactive
Actually, having just posted that I think this is a pile of cr@p, doesn't seem to have half of them on it, but maybe I'm using it wrong?
Its probably crap, given the 'prominence' of Everest equals its height !
its a list of the 50 most prominent peaks, not highest, i think
and for everest does its prominence not equal its height?
Everest is top of their list. "prominence is the vertical distance between a summit and the lowest contour line encircling it and no other peak" so it probably should be from the South Col to Summit.
> Everest is top of their list. "" so it probably should be from the South Col to Summit.
That was poorly worded by them.
Prominence is the vertical distance between a summit the lowest contour between it and any higher peak.
What Dan said...
Still not equal to its height above sea level.
I think for the highest peak on any land mass its prominence is equal to its height above sea level
