You'd think they would move the state line a few feet so that the state HP could be located on the actual summit, rather than half way up the ridge.

GEM Trail wrote:Winglady- I have your book- it is our guide for all our highpoint climbs! It is a great guidebook. Especially appreciated are the nonclimbing points of interest near each highpoint. My only quibble is that I wish you listed a climb for each mountain. Maybe highpointers count driving up the mountain as a climb, but a lot of people, including me, don't! I wonder Diane if you have any plans of completing your list and climbing Denali?

(Let the wimp comments begin. That's OK -- I've already heard them all!)

For this reason many people choose to climb Mt Wheeler on the other side of the state- only 80 feet shorter but a stand-alone mountain and a more satisfying climb.
