Research seems to indicate the Fishers Peak Mesa, to the south, is slightly higher than Fishers Peak. This makes the flat-topped Fishers Peak Mesa (and not this sharp peak) the highest point in the USA west of the main N-S line of I-25, and therefore, by some definitions, the highest point east of the Rockies.
