List Description

List Info

Nevada has more high-prominence peaks that any other state except Alaska. A quirk of prominence as a mountain measure is that desert fault-block range high points tend to have very high prominence values, and Nevada is 98% covered by this kind of terrain. There are approximately 169 peaks in Nevada with over 2000 feet of prominence, just nudging out much larger California's 163 (which also includes many fault-block desert peaks).

No one has completed this list, and it is unlikely to happen soon, since Bald Mountain in the Groom Range (peak #30) is located on the Nellis Air Force base, a nuclear test site. The area is actively guarded and patrolled by the U.S. Military.

Note that the unranked peaks on this list have less than 2000 feet of clean prominece, but they do have 2000 feet or more of optimistic prominence. These unranked peaks are "error range" summits, and some of them may have a very good chance of being over the cutoff. Some climbers elect to ascend these unranked peaks for the sake of completeness.

  • Prominence values in this list may not agree 100% with sources, due to different interpretations of key col spot elevations and out-dated peak elevations in the PBC Database.
