Discuss geopolitical area highpoints, prominence, and similar lists.

Anyone interested in an ascent soon?

Any takers for getting up on this thing this late fall/early winter? My dad and I would love to get on it before winter officially rolls in.

I'd be in for some time in Dec.

Jeremy,

I'd like to get this peak as well. I used to live in Eagle and stared at that mountain quite often. Just was never sure if it was climbable.

I'm open to pretty much anytime.

This weekend just opened up for me, though I'm not sure if I still want to take advantage of the lack of snow down south. Could be convinced otherwise if more peaks were added into the mix.

this weekend is a NO-GO for me. I expect to finish JeffCo ranked list this weekend. (Warren, Raleigh). Next weekend is obviously out, too (Turkey Day), plus I'll be in OHIO.

Somehow got to this one late, wish I had read some of this before I was there a couple years ago - didn't climb any pillars

It is a former fire lookout which may account for anchors and broken glass

Ken Nolan confirmed in June 2009 using a sight level that the eastern summit with the debris is higher.

That is my rap sling.
Solo'ed it a few years back on my second visit.
The two summits are so close...
I went back and took the gear to do the W one as well.
