List of European ultra prominent peaks

This is a list of all the ultra prominent peaks (with topographic prominence greater than Script error: No such module "convert".) in Europe, that aren't already listed in the top part of the List of Alpine peaks by prominence. The two lists together cover all the ultra prominent mountains of Europe. The column "Col" denotes the highest elevation to which one must descend from a peak in order to reach peaks with higher elevations; note that the elevation of any peak is the sum of its prominence and col.

For ease of reference, the list is divided into sections. Islands in the North Atlantic that are territories of European countries have also been included (with the exception of Greenland), and so have peaks in European Russia and the Caucasus states.
