Connecting Saddles in this area are difficult to verify since all the small peaks in this area top out at similar elevations and this "hill" might actually be higher than all the currently registered peaks in the area. Anne, Granite, and Baldy are all below 8000 feet and the nearby neighbor peak 8120 could be lower. If Peak 8120 is taller, and then therefore it is the next nearest highest neighbor, the connecting saddle with this hill is directly east and is at 7750 giving this peak a nice 370 foot rise. If this hill is taller, then the nearest higher peak is to the south and the connecting saddle is around 7890 with a rise of 245 feet. Obviously, that is important as there are many peakbaggers that are 300 foot prominence chasers so this one should be entered as this one could easily be the one that is over 300 feet depending on the actual surveyed elevation of the two peaks.

Since, the closed contour of 8120 is larger on this hill, and the topo suggests a much more steeper incline to the closed contour, one could infer that this feature is taller than peak 8120, however, my GPS track recording actually recorded that the peak on peak 8120 and its subpeaks were all rocky pinnacles that were closer to 8150 and the top of Hill 8120 was clearly lower (more closely to the 8120). Thus, will Hill 8120 being slightly lower the peak 8120 (which appears to be closer to 8150) the next highest neighbor is peak 8120 and this becomes a new 300 foot prominence peak to enjoy.
