A hill is classified as a HuMP if it is a hill of any height with a drop of at least 100 metres or more on all sides. The name HuMP stands for Hundred Metre Prominence.

A Twin HuMP is defined as a summit of equal height to another HuMP where the drop between the two summits is at least 30m but less than 100m.
