List Description

List Info

In the northeastern United States, a 4000-foot peak is a big deal. There are clubs for climbing them all, and peakbaggers know them all by heart. However, not much is known about 4000-foot peaks in eastern Canada, just north of New England. Mont Jacques-Cartier in the Chic-Choc range of southern Quebec rises to 4160 feet, but after that the vast reaches of the areas north of the Saint Lawrence are a blank spot in the mind of most hikers.

However, up in northern Labrador there is a range of peaks called the Torngat Mountains that harbors over 50 more 4000-footers. This list shows 49 that have a prominence of 500 feet or more and should be complete down to that level. Bear in mind, though, that the ususal standard for northeast peakbagging is 200 feet (actually 160 feet of clean prominence), and that there are only 62 peaks in all of New England and New York over 4000 feet high and with over 500 feet of prominence. So well over a third of the 4000-footers in northeastern mainland North America are in the Torngats.

The Torngats are rugged, remote, and have not been thoroughly explored. That is why most peaks on this list do not have names, just a made-up designation of the peak elevation, map sheet, and number (if necessary). The maps only show 100-foot contours, so many of these elevations are very rough. Many of these peaks have likely not yet been climbed.


Many thanks go to Richard Garland, who did an incredibly impressive job of helping me research these peaks, their elevations, and their prominences. We both spent hours poring over the terrible online GIFs from the Toporama web site, counting unlabelled contour lines, and Richard didn't even have the advantage of GIS software to help out! I especially thank him for inspiring me to continue work on this after I started to lose some interest. See his web site below for the most complete reference for the Torngats ever assembled.
