Nice Job guys. Kudos to all of you.
Nice collaborative effort. I would think that Taum Sauk belongs in the Ozark Section but who am I to complain about such a complete page? Once again - great job!
CSM, thanks for the nice words. The reason Taum Sauk is not included in the Ozark Section is because the Highpointers Club officially recognizes Mount Magazine in Arkansas as part of the "South Region" and Taum Sauk in Missouri as part of the "Midwest Region".
Guys, this is a great page, and I hate to nitpick! But I see that the caption on your Gannett photo is incorrect. That's my photo of Island Lake, not taken at Bonney Pass, and the high point on the right is Fremont Peak, while Gannett is not visible. There are other photos that do show Gannett from Bonney Pass that you can choose from if you wish. Either the caption or the photo needs to be changed, whatever works for you.
Thanks for bringing that up- the change was made to the caption.
I think you mean the photo on the page itself - not the main photo at the top of the page. I think Sawtooth Sean can change that one. He worked on that section.
Aha, you're so right! Didn't even think of the page's signature photo. I see Sean has fixed it.
Apparently, this specific page was mentioned in the recent issue of Apex to Zenith. Has anyone else seen that? I hope to see it when it arrives in my mailbox.
A true resource. Great text, too! I like the comment, "you will never be able to make a mountain out of some of these molehills." Very well written!
Nice job here, folks. A credit to the site.
Thanks for checking out the page and the nice comments!
As one of the three authors, I agree that the last paragraph isn't needed. But, being one of three authors, it is not up to me. While I would like to see that paragraph gone, we would have to ask the other author about it first. Puma, do you want to do it, or do you want to leave that paragraph alone? My vote is to get rid of it for what it's worth.
The last paragraph is gone- the whole "Difficulty Essay" could be removed if deemed so. I'm not offended and I was just giving a point of view from a certain mentality amongst some of the climbers I know, and myself. It was just an opinion that the High Pointers List is an esteemed list, but contains some really easily accessible points. I knew I wasn't exactly the best person for this list- I've done most of the Western points, but not for the High Pointer reason.
they are not as easily accessible as one may think. Finding these suckers is tough. Finding a mountain is easy, just look up. Finding a small hill in the middle of the country is HARD!
I added some images so that the bottom looks even. There are now 12. However, I will keep by the strict code that nobody can add to the image group except for us. I hope 12 looks good, and the page looks just a bit better. The photos added are of Granite Peak and Whitney.
I would have been easy to just make a list, but you guys wrote great text and made the effort to build a really good page. Thanks!
I noted the Greylock update on my Greylock page.
maryland is not in the northeast by any stretch,it's in the south or mid atlantic.that's like saying fresno is in the northwest
Thanks for your comment. Although I can't find the map online (I am looking at it right now from Highpointers Club magazine) Maryland is included in the Northeast region along with West Virginia! Virginia is in the South Region, along with Texas! There are only 4 regions.
As long as we create a new section called "updates" or "blurbs". It doesn't belong in the main text. We should also mention that now over 200 people have reached all 50 State Highpoints. I will add that.
