Elevations of Panamerican Peaks

Here is a chart which reduces the number of peaks down to 14 – leaving out Mt. Whitney (contiguous United States) and Sajama (Bolivia). After all, you can ride from Peru to Chile without having to go through Bolivia, if you follow the Panamericana through the Atacama desert near the coast instead of riding up into the altiplano. (Of course, you’d miss the Salar de Uyuni and the Titicaca Lake.)
