I agree

The highest of these rocks is 6800+ ft. Walt Wheelock includes this rock in his "101 Tops" book. It is minimum class 3.

Re: I agree

Thanks again for the good info. I'll have to check out Wheelock's book. Triplet Rocks is on my to-do list.

Re: I agree

I never got a chance to look for this book so I don't have any more information than given above. Let me know if you find it.

Source book

Sorry, guys... after all this time, I finally found my copy of "101 Tops". It is NOT by Wheelock as I originally thought, but is authored by ,J. R. Bruman in 1982--apparently privately published. I bought my copy in a book store in Pasadena , I believe. By the way... I coincidentally met the author at the 14,000 foot level of White Mountain Peak about 15 years ago.
