We have gained a hill though.
BBC News: A mountain in the Brecon Beacons has been downgraded to a hill after it missed a mark by just 4.9ft (1.5m).
Fan y Big has been taken off the Hewitts list, which records mountains in England, Wales or Ireland over 2,000ft (609.6m) high.
It is over 2,000ft tall and high enough to be classed as a mountain.
But mountains must also have a minimum drop between the summit and the col - the lowest point on a mountain ridge between two peaks - of 98.4ft (30m).
Myrddyn Phillips, 57, from Welshpool,discovered Fan y Big's drop was only 93.5ft (28.5m) when he measured it with satellite-based technology.
