"West Crestone"

Postby DaveLanders » Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:20 pm

I found a "new" 14er subpeak the other day. Just west of Crestone Peak, there is a summit with an interpolated elevation of 14100' (just above the "a" in the label "Crestone Peak"), and 120' of prominence (the saddle is ~13980', under the "k" in the label "Crestone Peak"). Since this has more prominence than some of the other subpeaks on the list, I think it deserves consideration for being added to the list.

I haven't climbed this, so I have no idea how hard it is.

I agree about the prominence, but the issue with including it is that the peak is not listed in any print references (Gerry's book, for example), whereas the others are.
