The following sortable table lists the 19 peaks of the Rocky Mountains of North America with at least 100 kilometers (62.14 miles) of topographic isolation and at least 500 meters (1640 feet) of topographic prominence.

The summit of a mountain or hill may be measured in three principal ways:

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the summit above a geodetic sea level.
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings.
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation.

Major 100-kilometer summits

Of these 19 major 100-kilometer summits of the Rocky Mountains, six are located in Montana, four in Wyoming, three in Colorado, three in British Columbia, two in Utah, two in Alberta, and one in Idaho. Two of these peaks lie on the Alberta-British Columbia border.
