I just completed a revamp of the Wichita Mountain's Granite Mountain page. The page was gutted when a member left a couple of years ago:

A new summit in the Midwest? Yes! I added Lone Rock in Wisconsin, an unexpected find.

I believe the most interesting areas of the flatlands get too overlooked, in favor of sometimes nondescript areas that happen to be the high point of arbitrarily-drawn state lines. I do not mean to terribly offend any high pointers - if you enjoy something, by all means, take part in it - but I just possess a different mindset.

So if anyone has this same mindset about the area and also happens to be overwhelmingly bored, I finished revamping a trip report (or more like an article now) about this. It covers a decent amount of places in and around the Midwest in which I grew up.
