List of Ultras of the United States

Denali (formerly Mount McKinley) in Alaska is the highest mountain peak of the United States of America and all of North America. Denali is the third most topographically prominent summit on Earth after Mount Everest and Aconcagua.

The following sortable table lists the 127 ultra-prominent mountain peaks of the United States.

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

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (328 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921 feet) of topographic prominence.

All elevations in the 48 states of the contiguous United States include an elevation adjustment from the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). For further information, please see this United States National Geodetic Survey note.

Of these 127 ultra prominent peaks, 64 are located in Alaska, 9 in California, 8 in Nevada, 8 in Utah, 7 in Washington, 6 in Hawaii, 5 in Arizona, 4 in Oregon, 4 in Montana, 3 in Colorado, 3 in Wyoming, 2 in Idaho, and one each in New Hampshire, North Carolina, and New Mexico.

In the United States, only Denali exceeds 5000 meters (16,404 feet) of topographic prominence. Three major summits exceed 4000 meters (13,123 feet), ten exceed 3000 meters (9843 feet), 45 exceed 2000 meters (6562 feet), and the following 127 summits exceed 1500 meters (4921 feet) of topographic prominence.
