...I agree - Matterhorn certainly felt like a mountain in its own right when we climbed it. I think that the "stiff" rules when compiling the list are OK in a place where peaks have not been named (tons of those in Idaho for instance, a couple in OR) however one should look more carefully at an area that has a set of popular and named peaks and possibly relax the rules accordingly.

Thanks for the other links - I will incorporate them on the main page (I think many find these lists interesting).

The mountain is actually volcanic in origin.

Actually, RPC has stated it backwards...

In actuality, it is:

Steens Mountain is ~9,733 ft

Aneroid Mountain is 9,702 ft

Pete's Point is 9,675 ft



So, RPC meant to say Aneroid is 'ahead' of Pete's Point but 'behind' Steens Mountain.



Yadda yadda yadda.

I agree with you about the Oregon Top 100 list shortchanging The Matterhorn (9,845 ft +/-), which is considered by many (including my biased self, since I've climbed it and not Sacajewa Peak) to be the highest peak in the Wallowa Mountains. How can a list leave off the highest peak in such a wide region?



Here's another site which contains an Oregon Top 100 list (may be the same list): http://howbert.netherweb.com/mountains/



And here's another list:

On this one, I complained about 10 months ago that Steens Mountain (~9,730 ft) is not on this list. They said they would incorporate it. Well, it looks like all they've done is put it as an note at the top above the list!
