The Highest Mountains in Arizona: #1 - #100


Typical countryside in Four Peaks Wilderness
Typical countryside in some parts of Arizona

This list is not the usual "atlas" type of list. This is a climber's list: it doesn't rank mountains by their height above sea level but by how much someone would have to actually climb to reach the summit. That's what "prominence" is about.

I have a full list up to about 500 Arizona mountains but processing and formatting all that takes time. I've gone here because the summer of 2015 is the first summer in several years where I can look forward to doing some climbing. But it will be another year before I can tackle anything above 10,000 feet and have almost no concerns about making it up and back...
