Put Kai Tak in a SIM, even though it's closed. You'll see whether you have a pilot or systems monitor
The mountains aren't really the problem at Toncontin.. It's the drop off at the end of the runway that is the problem: Case in point, the TACA A320 that dropped off at the end of a long rollout.

Cleveland? LAX? Really?? Tioman and Aspen are more dangerous than those, and Tioman has an IGS/checkerboard approach similar to Kai Tak.

Overall, this list has the usuals, but could use an update.

Not sure why Juneau Alaska never makes these lists but its a hell of a lot more entertaining in weather than many on this list. Lots of cumulo-granite around and weather is the norm. The approaches have improved dramatically since I first flew in in the 90's, and GPS is why.
