The original version of this file was scanned and edited by Peter Maxwell from the official SPS Peaks List dated October 1992, proofing and further edits by Steve Eckert. Updates from the March 1999 SPS List and conversion to HTML/CGI from plain text by Steve Eckert. Tables have been re-formatted and several peak names have been corrected where the SPS list is in error, but this data should be in general agreement with the 247 peaks on the 18th Edition of the SPS Peaks List.
