The following is a list of the 100 tallest mountains in California that also rise at least 300 feet above all saddles connecting them to higher peaks (i.e., the 100 highest peaks with at least 300 feet of prominence). This list is a subset of the 147 California Thirteeners. Please see the VRMC California Thirteeners page for more information on the methodology used to compile this and other VRMC peak lists.
