The following is a list of the California mountains above 14,000 feet that also rise at least 300 feet above all saddles connecting them to higher peaks (i.e., 14,000-foot peaks with at least 300 feet of prominence). The Fourteeners (aka 14’ers, 14ers, 14Kers, etc.) are 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.

(There are no marginal Fourteeners.1Even Mt. Muir clearly fails the VRMC passing criteria. See "What Happened to Mt. Muir?" on the California Thirteeners page for details.)
