List Description

This list is largely based on the work of John Biggar (http://www.andes.org.uk), who is the world's leading authority on the true elevations of the peaks of the Andes. Given the lack of good large-scale maps in much of South America, he has done an excellent job of determining which peaks belong on this list. The peak latitude-longitudes and range classifications where calculated from other sources.
