prominence- 60'
elevation- 4,780', interpolated from its position near the 4,720' line on the map

I've added "Lizard Rock":
http://listsofjohn.com/PeakStats/Climbers.php?Id=138227

A couple notes:
A parent has to be a peak possessing 300'+ interpolated prominence
Prominences are not listed by estimations in the field such a 60 ft. A fixed number of contours (using the contour interval of the map the feature appears on) is estimated if not visible, and then interpolation is used.

the line/proximate parent info is confusing to me. i was unaware that it needed to be a ranked peak, thanks for the heads up.

60 feet is the actual height/prominence of the tower. i got that information from "Rock Climbing Utah" p.50(Green). other books have the tower up to 65 feet so i decided to be conservative and go with the lower number. 4720 feet might be interpolated because i'm having an awful time trying to figure out where i found the summit elevation. a 4720 contour goes through the spot where lizard rock is, but i'm unsure if i interpolated the base elevation myself and added 60 feet, or if there is a source. MP is no help in that regard.
