The 50 most prominent mountains in the world

The prominence of a mountain is different from its height. You've probably heard of about 5 of the 50 highest mountains in the world but you'll have heard of a lot more of the 50 most prominent. The prominence of a peak is the smallest distance you have to go down from the summit before you can go up to a higher mountain. And if there is no higher mountain then the prominence is the height.
