  2. There are 192 summits on this list, of which 102 are hard ranked and 1 is soft ranked.

  3. For this list, I require that a ranked summit in Alaska or the Yukon have at least 2,000 feet of Prominence.

  4. For this list, I require that a ranked summit in Mexico have at least 1,000 feet of Prominence.

  5. For this list, I require that a ranked summit in the lower 48 states have at least 300 feet of Prominence.

  6. This list is a work in progress. I will add information as time permits.
