*To be ranked, a peak must rise at least 300 feet above the saddle that connects it to the nearest 14er peak (if another exists nearby). This guideline has been in use in Colorado for some time. The following peaks are not ranked because they do not fit this criteria, but they are on this 14er list because they are named and recognized on USGS maps.

▲ Mount Cameron: Rises 138 feet above its saddle with Mount Lincoln

▲ El Diente: rises 259 feet above its saddle with Mount Wilson

▲ Conundrum Peak: rises 240 feet above its saddle with Castle Peak

▲ North Eolus: rises 179 feet above its saddle with Mount Eolus

▲ North Maroon Peak: rises 234 feet above its saddle with Maroon Peak
