Notes/updates/corrections on Tusher Canyon summits (UT)

“Putterman’s Big Toe” is misidentified here, both in location and the picture posted by Stewart Green. The tower at 38.6880°N, 109.7671°W is NOT “Putterman’s Big Toe” as described in Desert Rock and High on Moab. “Putterman’s Big Toe” is located very nearby: 38.6878°N,-109.7671°W. Prominence is only about 20’ and the grade is 5.9 per the guidebooks.

The tower at 38.6880°N, 109.7671°W and shown in Stewart's picture is “Putterman’s Nub” (not in any guidebook I know of but listed on Mountain Project). It goes free at 5.12 or can be aided at 5.7 C0. Prominence is approximately 60’.

The peak named “Neighbor of Putterman” in High on Moab is located at 38.6873°N,-109.7668°W. It has about 40’ of prominence and the easiest route to the top is class 3.

“House of Putterman” has significantly more prominence than the 80’ listed here. My best estimate is 240’ feet. Desert Rock lists the route to the top (Walden’s Room) as 230’ and the MP page pegs it at 240’.

Thanks - Removed the image and changed location for the Big Toe. Added Putterman's Neighbor. Upped prominence with a note for House of Putterman. Also can't find a reference other than MP for the Nub, so didn't add at this time.
