Dean Molen only lacks Mt. Jefferson to finish.
Mt. Jefferson's summit on the Linn/Jefferson county line is considered the most difficult county summit in the state. Mt. Jefferson also has a unique distinction in the state of Oregon in that it has a "liner" highpoint on its north flank which marks the highest point in Marion County, giving Jefferson three county highpoints less than 2/3 of a mile apart.
Four of the Oregon county HPs are relatively nondescript liners or unremarkable areas (Gilliam, Lincoln, Sherman and Wasco Counties) and will most likely never have SP pages. Most of the rest are of magnificent stature, and all but 10 already have pages on the site. Those already posted are listed at the left as "Children".
County Highpointing ResourcesA vast amount of information about county highpointing can be found here: http://www.cohp.org.
You can have your county highpoint progress displayed on that site by entering your visits either there or at http://www.peakbagger.com. The two websites have a special connection that allows them to work together. If you set up a membership at http://www.cohp.org, you'll also be a member at http://www.peakbagger.com, where you can enter all your other climbs as well.
