List of Colorado fourteeners

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Colorado fourteeners)

Mount Elbert in the Sawatch Range is the highest peak of the Rocky Mountains and the highest point in the U.S. State of Colorado.

In the mountaineering parlance of the Western United States, a fourteener is a mountain peak with an elevation of at least 14,000 feet. This is a complete list of the 53 fourteeners in the U.S. State of Colorado with at least 300 feet (91.44 meters) of topographic prominence. See the main fourteener article, which has a list of all of the fourteeners in the United States, for some information about how such lists are determined and caveats about elevation and ranking accuracy.

The summit of a mountain or hill may be measured in three principal ways:

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the summit above a geodetic sea level. [1] [2]
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings. [3] [2] [4]
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation. [5]

Fourteeners

The following sortable table comprises the 53 Colorado summits with at least 14,000 feet (4267 meters) of elevation and at least 300 feet (91.44 meters) of topographic prominence.
