Notes[edit]

  1. ^ This list excludes most mountains in the Ross Dependency, an area of Antarctica claimed by and administered by New Zealand, though it does include the similarly claimed and administered Balleny Islands. These claims are in abeyance, in accord with the Antarctic Treaty. If mountains in the Ross Dependency were included in this list, several notable peaks would appear in the upper part of this list, including Mount Erebus which, at 3795 m (12,451 ft), would outrank Aoraki/Mount Cook.
