Shortly several summits in the F/NO region will be deactivated because of prominence issues. We have made a number of attempts to contact the Association Manager and the NO Region Manager to discuss these without success. Therefore it becomes necessary to de-activate several summits that are not P150 compliant.
Full details of these prominence issues are posted elsewhere at
However for those that don’t want to get into the fine details, in order to provide a perspective of the kind of issues encountered, we find that NO-009 385m and NO-010 385m are both encompassed within the same 375m contour thus indicating a maximum of 10m prominence. As another example, we find that walking north from NO-007 398m, the ground drops briefly to about 384m and then rises to 405m followed by a short drop to 391m from where it rises steadily to 448m. It isn’t logical that you can walk up hill from a summit.
We cannot be sure how this situation has arisen, but it needs to be corrected. The summits that appear to be not P150 are NO-002, NO-005, NO-007, NO-010, NO-011, NO-012, NO-013, NO-014, NO-015, NO-019, NO-020, NO-027, NO-029, NO-034, NO-039, NO-044, and NO-045. Also the summits NO-004, NO-036 and NO-038 do not qualify in their current locations but will qualify if revised to appropriate locations.
