Topographic prominence Characterizes the height of a mountain or hills summit by the vertical distance between it and the lowest contour line encircling it but containing no higher summit within it; it is a measure of the independence of a summit

In topography, prominence measures the height of a mountain or hill's summit relative to the lowest contour line encircling it but containing no higher summit within it. It is a measure of the independence of a summit. A peak's key col is a unique point on this contour line and the parent peak is some higher mountain, selected according to various criteria.

Monmouth Mountain

Monmouth Mountain, commonly known as Mount Monmouth is one of the principal summits of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains of southern British Columbia. At 3,182 m (10,440 ft), it is the highest summit of the Chilcotin Ranges. It stands just north of the Lillooet Icecap between the heads of Chilko Lake and the Taseko Lakes. West of Chilko Lake's south arm is Mount Good Hope 3,242 m (10,636 ft) and, beyond it, the massif surrounding Mount Queen Bess 3,298 m (10,820 ft), which is the highest summit east of the Homathko River.

Mount Tatlow Mountain in British Columbia, Canada

Mount Tatlow is one of the principal summits of the Chilcotin Ranges subdivision of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains of southern British Columbia. Standing on an isolated ridge between the lower end of Chilko Lake and the Taseko Lakes, it is 3,063 m (10,049 ft) in elevation.

Chutine Peak

Chutine Peak is one of the highest mountains in the Boundary Ranges, a group of subranges of the northern Coast Mountains of British Columbia and Alaska. Chutine Peak lies just east of the Stikine Icecap, and to the north and west of the Stikine River, and south of the basin of the Whiting River. It is notable for its huge west face: the drop to Chutine Lake is 2,600 m (8,530 ft) in 3.5 km (2 mi). Due to its remoteness, however, it is rarely visited.

Hazelton Mountains

The Hazelton Mountains are a grouping of mountain ranges on the inland lee of the Kitimat Ranges of the Coast Mountains in northwestern British Columbia, Canada, spanning the area of Hazelton south to the Nechako Reservoir. Defined by the British Columbia geographic names office, they span from the Nass River to the Nechako Plateau, and between the Coast Mountains and the Bulkley River, they are considered by geographers to be part of the Interior Mountains complex, though in local perspective they are considered to be part of the Coast Mountains. They are neighboured on the west by the Kitimat Ranges and on the east by the southernmost section of the Skeena Mountains; beyond the Nass River, which is their northern boundary, are the Boundary Ranges of the Coast Mountains. To their southeast is the Nechako Plateau, including the Quanchus Range on the near-island between Ootsa and Eutsuk Lakes of the Nechako Reservoir.

Victoria Peak (British Columbia)

Victoria Peak is a mountain located in the Sutton Range of the Vancouver Island Ranges. At 2163 m, it is the third highest peak on Vancouver Island. The mountain is located on the White River valley and has mountains of comparable elevation nearby. It is accessible as a day trip by logging road and is visible from Campbell River and the Discovery Islands.

Ultra-prominent peak Mountain summit with a topographic prominence of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) or more

An ultra-prominent peak, or Ultra for short, is a mountain summit with a topographic prominence of 1,500 metres (4,900 ft) or more; it is also called a P1500. The prominence of a peak is the minimum height of climb to the summit on any route from a higher peak, or from sea level if there is no higher peak. There are approximately 1,524 such peaks on Earth. Some well-known peaks, such as the Matterhorn and Eiger, are not Ultras because they are connected to higher mountains by high cols and therefore do not achieve enough topographic prominence.

Mount Ratz

Mount Ratz is a mountain located just west of the Stikine River, about 5 km (3 mi) east of the British Columbia-Alaska border. It is the highest peak in the Stikine Icecap and of the Boundary Ranges which in turn form part of the Coast Mountains. It is an extremely high-prominence summit, with a difference in elevation with its "key col" at Hyland Ranch Pass of 2,430 m (7,972 ft). Thus making it one of Canada's Ultra peaks.

Sharktooth Mountain

Sharktooth Mountain is a 2,668-metre (8,753 ft) mountain in the Stikine Ranges of the Northern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, located between the Cassiar and Dall Rivers. It has a prominence of 1,653 m, created by the pass at the Frog Lakes between the Pitman River, a tributary of the Stikine and the Frog River, a tributary of the Kechika.

Howson Peak

Howson Peak is a mountain in west central British Columbia, Canada, located 54 km (34 mi) southwest of Telkwa and southwest of the head of Telkwa River. This prominent mountain is the highest of the Howson Range. Howson Peak was first climbed in 1958 after an accident during a 1957 attempt in which Rex Gibson, then president of the Alpine Club of Canada, was killed. That route, as well as many other lines, remains unclimbed. The mountain is now in Tazdli Wiyez Bin or Burnie-Shea Provincial Park. Access is by air to Burnie Lake or on foot from the Kitnayakwa River road. The Burnie Glacier Chalet is the nearest accommodation.

Thudaka Peak

Thudaka Peak is the highest mountain of the Thudaka Range of the Cassiar Mountains in the Northern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, located between the heads of Obo River and Frog River. Glaciers exist on Thudaka's northern flanks, but the zone is usually quite dry.

Shedin Peak
