I think I spelled Rainier as "Ranier"... or made an accidental typo. Knew it but missed that one. Finished with 11 which is currently the 56th percentile.

Made the same spelling mistake with Rainier, ended up with 11....but now it's the 55th percentile.

For europeans, I'm pretty sure Mont Blanc is the most famous mountain in the alps... Anyway, the Matterhorn is also called Cervino (or Cervin in French).

I would put the Matterhorn as most famous, Blanc as the highest but doesn't have a lot of character.

you almost never hear about matterhorn and you hear about montblanc nearly as much as mount everest, so I would definitely agree montblanc is more famous.

Though I guess it depends on how much toblerone you eat ;)

And since when does having character is a prerequisite for being famous? That is definitely not the way it works with humans ;)

That was stupid, I've been to Pinatubo, the only one of these I've visited, and totally blanked it.

Mt Cook was renamed Aoraki/Mt Cook in 1998. Maybe tweak the clue to add "... also called Aoraki" if you want to keep that as the "C" answer?

Really? Highest in NZ can mean only one mountain. Yes, it can be referred by both names, but it's not really going to confuse anyone.

At the risk of incurring American wrath, i think this is a little too North American centric I think. Some of the mountains in that region are internationally well-known, but many are not.

Is this the work of someone from Portland or Seattle? Two mountains each from Washington and Oregon, plus one across the border in BC - that's a quarter of the mountains on the quiz within less than a day's drive of each other. In fact you can go down the Pacific Coast of North America from Alaska to the Mexican border without passing through a state, province or territory without representation here. Even other parts of the US don't get a look in - nothing from the east, nothing from the Rockies, nothing from Hawaii. And then there's the matter of that little group of hills known as the Andes that don't turn up anywhere here.

you can substitute zardkuh - the highest mount in zagros chain - with a height of 15000 ft instead of the more famous hill of Zion.

93% percentile. Fairly easy for someone who is kind of obsessed with mountains, but Garibaldi completely threw me off. Pretty damn obscure, had heard of it only once... I would have gone with Galdhøpiggen or Gunnbjørn Fjeld for G, which would have been easy for me, but would probably have ended up with very low percentages anyway. Yushan should be for Y.

Good quiz - but it doesn't need all those blanks. Could I suggest Nanga Parbat (9th highest in the World) as worthy of addition and surely more internationally famous than Garibaldi, Hood or Tambora?

U - Ural, or are mountain chains banned?
