Field observations show that the highest point on this flat-topped mountain is near the 7916-foot benchmark. The two tiny 7920-foot contours north of the benchmark are about 10 feet lower than the benchmark knoll. These contour are likely a map error, but the benchmark elevation might be too low, too. Here, the elevation is given as 7920 feet, assuming the benchmark is 4 feet below the high point.
