I realize this page is still under construction but I have two suggestions anyway. First, the coordinates and thus the topozone link are off by a bit. Depending on datum you want something like: 39.1542 and -105.5835.

Secondly, you might want to note that this peak is one of the 73 in CO with 2000 feet of prominence:
That P2000 status makes it a somewhat important mtn to people who go after prominence peaks and may be worth noting in the page's text.

Summit location is off per Roach.

Per Gerry Roach, the summit area is the other one (11,550). In his book, "Lost Creek Wilderness", they checked and double checked and backsighted, but it appears the map is incorrect. I didn't go over to the (incorrect) summit area, just the high one. LOJ.com has it noted correctly.

Re: Summit location is off per Roach.


I will make a note that there is some disagreement as the the actual highpoint and to hit both the eastern and western highpoints to be sure.
