List Description


  • Book County High Points by Andy Martin; combination of two lists compiled 2000 by Edward Earl, Andy Martin, Roy Schweiker, and Ron Tagliapietra.
  • List generation helped by Edward Earl's WinProm program.
  • Posts made to the Yahoo Prominence Group online forum.
  • Prominence values in this list may not agree 100% with sources, due to different interpretations of key col spot elevations and out-dated peak elevations in the PBC Database.
