I appreciate that use of these data is acknowledged including a link to my main mountain page.

There are 8 Ultras in Switzerland, of which 1 is on the border to Italy.
There are 36 peaks having at least 1000 meter of prominence, of which 8 are located on the border (7 Italy, 1 France).
In order to climb the 50 finest restricted to be located inside mainland Switzerland,
one must in fact climb the peaks down to number 63 on this list.

Two stars behind the rank means that I have climbed it (7/50).
