Flat Top?

No, this is not Flat Top BM, it is Mount Emmons (13440'). The summit cairn is right in the middle. North Emmons, Emmons, South Emmons, Owl, and Lost BM could all have been named Flat Top. July-15-2010

What's your secret?

How can you detect which point is highest?

No, no.. let's keep "Dean" out of this!

Do you have a special instrument to measure
the cylindrical angles of the highest boulder?

Or, do you just carry a simple GPS?

Re: What's your secret?

I use a GPS and whenever possible set a waypoint for either the x or the benchmark on a summit. In this case, there is a small cairn but it is hard to distinquish it from the rest of the rocks. There are a ton of flat summits in the Uintas.

RE: Emmons comment... I'll bet Beulah is not one of the flat top summits!
