Canadian Ribus

A “Ribu” is a peak with at least 1000 m of topographical prominence. Canada has about 1000 Ribus and ranks probably #1 in the world. This is another “open list” meaning that nobody can ever finish it for obvious reasons. The list and the database is also incomplete and still needs fair amount of work to solidify some candidates. For example, Golden Ears (1002 m prominence) is counted as a Ribu but Guanaco Peak (997 m prominence) unfortunately didn’t make into the list. How accurate these measurements are? I have no idea…

There are about 51 Ribus in the loose-defined region of SW BC where I’m living in, and this makes a subset of the whole list. At least a few peak-baggers are known to have been working on this “SW BC Prominent Peaks” list and the Front Runner List can be seen on peakbagger.com. There is no Front Runner List for the Canadian Ribus unfortunately as far as I know, so if you think you’ve done fair amount of them then let me know, and maybe I’ll make a list here. To bag as many Ribus in Canada as possible seems like a decently challenging and diverse project for peak-baggers living in Canada or US so I hope this can gain some popularity in the near future.
