Traditionally 61 peaks have been counted as 4000ers in the Alps. This figure though depends a lot how you count as some of the peaks are not very independent at all. And there are also several more, arguably just as independent mountains as some included on the list. Since 1994 the official list of UIAA contains 82 'official' 4000ers, with the inclusion of a further 46 'lesser summits' in an enlarged list. With the prominence cut off set at 100m, the list would contain 52 peaks. Even 100m prominence is not a lot, in most other areas peaks with far more prominence are still not considered separate mountains. For example the list of 8000ers with 100m prominence cut off would have several more peaks than the official 14.
