This list could be pruned a little based on prominence (or other subpeak-eliminating) criteria. In particular, some of the subpeaks of Mount McKinley are dubious, most especially Browne Tower. I went ahead and linked them to the McKinley page, which now has a section on these subpeaks. --Spireguy 21:56, 3 April 2006 (UTC)


I agree that this article lacks context; I think it should simply be moved to be part of the fourteeners article. It wouldn't make that article too long and it would certainly provide context. (Note that since the obsession with fourteeners is mostly an American one, it makes sense to put this U.S. list on the fourteener page.) If I don't get negative responses to this I'll go ahead and move it and change this to a redirect. Also, I will probably do the pruning I mentioned before; e.g. Browne Tower is a silly inclusion, since it has almost no prominence and is never climbed as a separate objective. --Spireguy 15:08, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

That sounds fine. User:dbenbenn 01:34, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
I went ahead and did the move. -- Spireguy 20:21, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
