List Description

Note that the Desert Peaks Section will sometimes "suspend" a peak from this list due to fire closures, access issues, or other reasons. These suspended peaks are a still listed here, but as unranked peaks. When they are un-suspended, they will become fully ranked peaks once again.

If a peak is de-listed, it will be removed entirely from the list here. This is a more severe action than suspension.
