List "Northeast Overall Steepest 100" By wayfarer

Notes: This is a list of the overall steepest 100 peaks in the Northeastern U.S. Basically, this concept measures the drop, in feet, of a summit in every direction over distances of 100, 800, and 1600 meters, then averages the numbers together for a calculation of the average slope in degrees. For this list, I used a prominence cutoff of 200 feet. I also included peaks that were in the error range, or very near misses, for that prominence. However, one must be aware that the LOJ Database, which the steepness lists rely upon, does not include all unnamed peaks with less than 300 feet prominence, so it is possible that other qualifying and high scoring peaks with 200 feet prominence may be absent from this list.
