|Nice page. One correction, though. Middle Peak is the highest point in that section of the San Miguels according to Gerry Roach.|

|The topo map says Dolores is 13,290' and Middle Peak is 13,261'. I don't know why he would say that Middle Peak is higher, unless the topo map is wrong.|

|Check the TopoZone link for the true location of Middle Peak's summit. For whatever reason, the USGS didn't survey Middle Peak's highest point, which interpolates to an elevation of 13,300'. The two are very close in elevation, however, and it would take a hand-level to make this determination for certain.|
I'll have to dig up my San Juans book, but there's an interesting side-note about the history of the names of Middle and Dolores, and if I'm remebering rightly, it lends credence to the idea that Middle is the taller. I'll post it later!

|You're right. The true highpoint on Middle Peak is very close to Delores. I didn't even even see that on the topo map until now.|

|Good page. I have viewed Dolores Peak from Lone Cone on two cimbs and the Wilsons on two climbs, but haven't been to this one. Its looks pretty interesting.|
Oh, yes, and add this to the San Juans group. When you go to edit page, there is a "mountains group" section that you can add peaks to groups.
Here's a shot of the peak from Lone Cone:

|Nice to see this mountain is on SP! My dad is looking in to hiking it and was asking me if I could find any info on it. Glad to see that it's here.|
