List Description

This is a random and very subjective list of famous peaks that are not famous because they are high. No peak is allowed on this list if it is the highest point of a country, state, province, county, region, large island, or PEMRACS Range1, 2, 3, or 4. These summits are famous because of their appearance, historic events, or popularity as climbing destinations. I am sure there are many other such peaks in Asia, Africa, and other parts of the world that I am not familiar with that belong on this list.

Many of these peaks are iconic symbols that serve to define a city, region, or country. Many have instantly recognizable shapes or profiles.
