County Line Peaks List

Here's an idea for a new list that expands upon the CoHP list. Do all the peripheral peaks on the county borderline.

For example, in CO, I believe there are 395 ranked peaks on the border of 2 counties, and 3 peaks on a 3-Co line. Thus the list would be 398 peaks, but count as 799 summits (395x2 + 3x3) when you tally up the county peaks logged.
Pretty efficient climbing!
I wonder if anyone has completed them all?

Likewise, there are 126 unranked peaks on a 2-Co line, and none on a 3-Co line (listed that is).

Would be nice to list all 3-Co and the only two 4-Co pts in CO, even if unranked ;)
Think of it this way, this pt would be the highest pt you could bag common to 3 or 4 Co lines!

What are some examples of these? Which peaks are 4 county line peaks?

I explored the tri/quad-county pts in CO, and it turns out that there are 101.
3 of them are ranked pks listed on LOJ : James Pk, Thunder Mtn, & Trico Pk.
There are 2 unranked pks listed on LOJ : Huerfano Co HP and Yuma Corner.
There are couple others with > 200' prom and couple more > 80' prom, unlisted here, but interesting pks most likely to be visited on the way to something else.
The others are all just about 0' prom, unlisted here, but on my list of POI.
The only two quad-co pts in CO are at these jcns:Dolores-La Plata-Montezuma-San Juan, and Crowley-El Paso-Lincoln-Pueblo. The latter should be visited when doing the Crowley CoHP.
