This is a list of mountains of the Swiss canton of Uri. Uri is a very mountainous canton and lies entirely within the Alps. It is also one of the five cantons having summits above 3,600 metres. Topographically, the most important summit of the canton is that of the Dammastock (most elevated, most prominent and most isolated).

This list only includes significant summits with a topographic prominence of at least 150 metres (492 ft). There are over 90 such summits in Uri and they are found in almost all its municipalities.[1] All mountain heights and prominences on the list are from the largest-scale maps available.[2]

    Given are the years for the first recorded ascents. In many cases local people or surveyors made earlier ascents. In particular, chamois and ibex hunters are expected to have reached many summits. Years in italics indicate that it is known that an earlier ascent was made, for example by the presence of artifacts on top or the summit's prior use as a triangulation point.
