Proposed changes[edit]

This page says that Hawaiian islands are included, yet there is no mention of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, both on the Big Island of Hawaii, both come in at just under 14,000 feet in elevation. Someone needs to add them. Mahalo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.8.248.141 (talk) 06:25, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Mauna Kea (#77) and Mauna Loa (#85) are both on this list. --Buaidh (talk) 13:09, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
User:Jcmenal has moved Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from North America to Oceania. Yours aye, Buaidh (talk) 17:27, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

This list omits Alaska's Mount Jarvis (13,421 feet with a prominence of 4,771 feet), Mount Tressider (13,315 feet with a prominence of 1,665 feet), and Mount Silverthrone (13,220 feet with a prominence of 3,270 feet). Consequently, the number of peaks listed should change from 120 to 123. The number of peaks in the United States should change from 101 to 104.

Mount Jarvis is now #97, Tressider Peak is #104, and Mount Silverthrone is #110. The total number of summits is now 123. The number of U.S. peaks is now 102 with the loss of the two Hawaiian peaks and the gain of the three Alaskan peaks. Yours aye, Buaidh (talk) 17:27, 20 November 2009 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

It is suggested that the Highest mountain peaks of North America and the List of highest mountains of North America be merged into a single article at Table of the highest major summits of North America. The new article will have a single sortable table similar to Highest mountain peaks of North America#Table.

Are there any objections? Are there suggestions for improvements? Yours aye, Buaidh (talk) 14:46, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
