Summit N39.56446 E39.51038 3333m on arrival, soon settling to 3327m (Etrex Legend HCx, 30 mins, 3m horizontal accuracy). Google terrain view has col 2820 interpolated between 2800 and 2840.
Jonathan de Ferranti says: local 3" SRTM data (on which Google data are based) are complete and give a cell maximum of 3307m and saddle cell of 2835m.
Hence prom say 3327-2835=492m (SRTM could be missing some elev as summit fairly small; saddle (just to E, to Akbaba) looks quite flat hence use SRTM). No clear pattern of agreement/disagreement between GPS and expected/mapped summit elevs for 6 Ultras visited but often quite close.
