Williamson is really "the" mountain in terms of size in the Sierra. 6th highest in the lower 48.

Williamson's ranking will go higher if the latest stats hold up. Instead of 14,375, it is now said to be 14,403.

5-17-2013:Well, this is a later addendum: The latest elevation for Williamson is now 14,379 Ft., so it has gained a reevaluation altitude of 4 feet, while Whitney gained 11 ft. Oh, by the way... Humphreys is now listed at 13,992 ft--just 8 ft. below 14er status. I wonder who the first climbers will be to try and raise a rockpile to that height...

Of interest... North Palisade is listed at 14,248 ft. and White Mtn is listed at 14,252.

Maybe then they will bump Barnard back up to 14er status and it would only take 14 ft to get Humphreys in the mix as well. :D

Hi,Noondueler...
Well, our hopes for Barnard regaining 14er status appears to have been shot down. It is still listed at 13,990. Even its status as California's highest 13er is gone--supplanted by Humphreys 13,992!

Thanks rmac10.
Do you know if any of the Colorado 14ers have been remeasured? I guess the old USGS elevations were done with transits and the new ones probably with radios on the summit.
Humphreys definitely deserves 14er status. At least it gained 6 ft! lol
Since the Sierra batholith lifts higher to the southeast, if it was further south it would easily be one.

Sorry to be late in responding to your latest query... as far as I know there have been no alterations to elevations for the Colorado peaks. I believe the reevaluations of the Sierra peaks were sparked by the recent discovery that the original geodetic surveys and subsequent updates were based on false statistics data. The new surveys are, I believe, obtained through the use of GPS satellites, thus correcting the previous theodolite observations. Who knows what surprises are yet to be revealed? It's possible only a select number of peaks in the Sierras were remeasured, and that others--such as Barnard--were not.

Easy to ID coming down 395. Beautiful shot that captures the true colors at that time of year.

Thanks Silvia.
Mt. Whitney is the highest but Mt. Williamson is the biggest most impressive peak in the Sierra and second highest. 4380m
It rises 3000m above Owens Valley.
