Awesome! I did a trip to some Texas 8ers & 7ers in February - I'm glad I can check them off.

One that seems to be missing - 8342:

I believe this is the key saddle - 7860, giving it a prominence of 482:

It's described on Summitpost as "Mt. Pratt" although we probably should just list it as 8342:

Added - had it on one version of the Culberson file, but not the one I finalized. :oops:

Sweet! I'll be updating my lists soon.
Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, well
It surely means that I don't know

Thanks John! I might be visiting the inlaws again over Thanksgiving and may have to hit some of these. I wish there was a way to see where they are all at visually. I know most are in SW Texas but it's a huge state and I'd like to see if there are any on my driving routes. Guess I'll have to get familiar with the county names.

All but 2 of the ranked eighters are in Guadalupe National Park. I did all the ones in the park over 2 days this past President's Day weekend. The first day I did El Capitan, Guadalupe, Shumard, Bartlett, and Bush - an 11 hour & 39 minute day. It's off trail in desert-like brush to El Cap, mainly out-and-back from Guadalupe (I left the trail a little below the summit), then it's all off trail & slow from Guadalupe over the rest of the summits to Bush. From Bush, I took the Bush Mtn & Tejas Trails back down to the trailhead.

The 2nd day I did 8342 and Hunter Peak from the Bear Canyon Trail - after first going to Frijole BM. Two contours north of the 8243 point could have possibly been 8260 & therefore made Frijole BM a soft-ranked peak, but my feeling was that 8243 was the high point. 8342 was a not-too-bad bushwhack from the trail in The Bowl, then back on trail to Hunter Peak. Bush & Hunter are connected by a long trail.

Steve, with your speed, I bet you could all seven of those ranked eighters in a day!
