4000 meter peaks of Colorado

4000 meter peaks of Colorado

Main article: Geography of Colorado

This article comprises three sortable tables of the major mountain peaks of the U.S. State of Colorado.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (328.1 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921.3 feet) of topographic prominence.

All elevations in this article include an elevation adjustment from the note.

Highest major summits

The following sortable table lists the 55 highest Colorado mountain peaks with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. Each of these 55 summits exceeds 4000 meters (13,123.4 feet) of topographic elevation.

Note: Compare this table with the List of Colorado fourteeners which includes peaks with at least 4267.2 meters (14,000 feet) of elevation and at least 91.44 meters (300 feet) of topographic prominence. The 11 highest peaks are the same on both lists, but this list of 4000 meter peaks excludes low prominence summits like Torreys Peak, and includes high prominence, although slightly lower, peaks like Mount Ouray.
