Metric Mountains Notes
* Summits are ranked in order of height, if multiple
summits share the same height the summits with the highest
ascent is listed first.
* Summit areas are denoted by two letters.
* Category indicates the importance of each summit in
terms of ascent, category A summits have at least 100 metres of
ascent, category B 50 metres and category C 25 metres.
* Summit names are linked directly to photographs of the
summit in question. These will be added as they become
* The altitude of each summit is listed in black, the
ascent in grey, c indicates Circa (approximately).
* Marilyn, Hewitt and Nuttall status is indicated for
each summit, by the letters M, H & N. All Hewitts occur in
this list, a number of Nuttalls do not. Only Marilyns over 600m
occur in this list.
* Grid references are currently shown in 6 digit form,
these will be updated to 8 digits.
* As above with the following additions;
* Each summit will have a thumbnail linked to a
photograph of the summit. It is my intention to eventually
provide a photograph of every summit in the lists. Initially I
shall use whatever photos I have at my disposal, irrespective
of quality. These will later be replaced by higher quality
photos once available. Quality however, is not the main concern
here. Photos which show the shape of the summits most clearly
will be chosen in preference to "dramatic" shots.
* All Hewitts and Nuttalls will be included, together
with all Marilyns over 600 metres. Summits marked with a black
X are not Metric Mountains, these are Nuttalls that have been
included for the benefit of Nuttall baggers. The 7 additional
Nuttalls added since the original publication will also be
* Grid references are accurate to eight digits (measured
from 1:25,000 maps in most instances) for the benefit of GPS
users. I may provide downloadable lists of grid refs for
OziExplorer in the future
