Elevation Notes

In August of 2018, Eric and Mattew Gilbertson climbed both Jabal Sawda and Jabal Ferwa, the two highest peaks in Saudi Arabia. On their trip they made careful measurements with a survey grade Trimble Geo 7X GPS unit on both summits. In October of 2018 they did post-processing on the collected data and determined that Ferwa is about 2 to 4 meters higher than Sawda, and therefore the highest point in Saudi Arabia with 98% confidence.
