Thanks for checking out the page and the comments.

K. Sopka - where have you found that info? I can't find any sources which confirm what you say about the elevation.

You're right about the Virunga Volcanoes. Karisimbi is given at 4507m in Kelsey's book. I just have to verify the elevation and then I'll change the list.

Mt. Hagen is a volcano. Thanks for letting me know, I had completely missed that one. The 3795m will give the peak place # 4 on the list.

I read it from a recent TR from some people that measured the mountain. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Have you found that TR?
Peaklist gives it at 4750m as well. Usually correct info there.
Kamchatka and the Russian Pacific islands list.

Thanks Scott.
I have mailed some friends for input.

I could contact KVERT and could let you know where the elevation comes from.

KVERT states the volcano is 4750m on their site. See below. Basically, it's a mess with and I wonder how you can pinpoint an elevation on a highly active volcano?
Anyway, I have sent KVERT a mail.

KLYUCHEVSKOY VOLCANO; 56° 03'N, 160° 39'E; Elevation 4,750 m
CURRENT LEVEL OF CONCERN COLOR CODE IS ORANGE

I'll let you know when I have any new info on this.
