Agreed... until the new data are published on some maps, it doesn't make sense to update some of the 14ers and not the others. It only skews the elevation data toward a select few peaks. Better that we at SP consistently use one set of elevations, given that *no* new information is available for 99% of peaks in CO.

There's the Gunsmoke Cafe off 285 near the prison, get the Mr Ed plate. I think that's what it's called. Basically this huge enchilada topped with an egg and sour cream and lotsa sauce. Very good.

Otherwise head to Salida as there are more options(more people). Don't recall the name, but Salida has a microbrew that serves beer and pizza.

For a visual of the current weather conditions, visit the Collegiate Peaks web site, which normally features a webcam focused on Mount Princeton

As you are aware, the new elevation is 14,204. Should be consistent with other pages (I noticed that Mt. Elbert & Mt. Yale have been changed).



Here are all the 14ers that should be updated (haven't checked to see which ones have been done already):



Colorado places, with old and new elevations listed:

Mt. Elbert: 14,433, 14,440

Mt. Lincoln: 14,286, 14,293

Torreys Peak: 14,267, 14,275

Mt. Evans: 14,264, 14,265

Longs Peak: 14,255, 14,259

Mt. Princeton: 14,197, 14,204

Maroon Peak: 14,156, 14,163

Mt. Sneffels: 14,150, 14,153

Pikes Peak: 14,110, 14,115

Snowmass Peak: 14,092, 14,099

Does anyone know why most sources list Princeton as the 20th highest, but in the Roach (2011) book it's listed as the 18th highest? Thanks in advance for help.

14ers 18-20 are all the same height, 14,197. Listed in alphabetical order would put Princeton #20. Looks like Roach is assigning the ranking by the peaks prominence. #18 Princeton is 2,177' from its highest neighbor, #19 Belford is 1,337 and #20 Crestone Needle is 457 feet. I guess just go out and do all three then you won't have to worry about their rankings.
