Ascent Trip Report

Everyone out there can breath a sigh of relief. I had a few beers, numbed myself up and dove back into the jungle. Yes, I brought some dependable measuring devices with me and here it is -

Original Bordeaux Mtn highpoint
N 18 20.02' W 64 43.40'
Elevation 1283'-1289' with crude altimeter.

New area with boundary marker
N 18 20.02' W 64 43.43'
Elevation 1248'-1253' with crude altimeter.

As can be seen it wasn't even close. The new area is nothing more than a seldom visited dirt pile lost in the woods. In no way did it feel this huge of a discrepancy in elevation loss but again, I had a few.
