Notes by Gerry Roach

  1. Gerry has completed the first five lists.

  2. Any list of the second highest point in a domain must use a second criterion. While the highest point is unique and well-defined, the second highest point is not. Without a second criterion, the second highest point could be a grain of sand an inch from the highest point. People approach this list with the thought that they want to climb the second highest peak in every state, but without a second criterion you cannot say, “I have climbed the second highest peak in every state.” You must say, “I have climbed the second highest peak in every state with a specific value of a second criterion.” This is not very romantic, but it is the reality of this quest.

  3. While there are several possibilities for the second criterion, prominence is the obvious choice. This choice gets complicated because different prominence numbers make sense for different states. It has been suggested that each state or region use a different prominence number, but such a list is subjective, not objective. To create objective lists, I use multiple lists where each list uses a single prominence number for all states. Then, for example, one could finish the 10,000-foot list and make the claim, “I have climbed the second highest peak in every state with a prominence of at least 10,000 feet.” Since the peaks on the various lists vary as the prominence cutoff decreases, a greater claim would be, “I have climbed all of the second highest peaks in each state, with a prominence of 7,000 feet or greater.” To make that claim, one would have to finish the 10,000-foot, 9,000-foot, 8000-foot, and 7,000-foot lists. To help such a quester, I also include aggregate lists for 7,000, 5,000, 3,000 and 2,000 feet of prominence. This confusing issue will make more sense when you look at the lists.

  4. In these lists, “Rank” is Rank by Elevation, not Rank by Prominence.

  5. All maps listed are USGS 7.5 minute quads unless otherwise indicated. The first map listed shows the highpoint.

  6. The datum for the Latitude and Longitude is WGS84.
