This is a subpeak of the Rimrocks feature in Billings. But this subpeak is on public lands and undeveloped whereas the true peak has been eliminated by the construction of a house and subdivision not shown on the USGS (see aerials).

It is hard to tell which spot within the closed contour is taller between the grave site, the tower, or the monument to the west that are all above the closed 3440 contour. But there are three humps within this closed contour. There is thus, more elevation than the 3440 contour so calling the peak of this feature 3445 is reasonable. Despite the great views and steep cliffs in over 300 degrees, there is little prominence for this subpeak as it is on a ridge that gains elevation to the west and the top peak of the Rimrocks feature is west at elevation 3853 but on private land (a home site).

See "Rimrocks" peak added by others for details of the highest point on the feature.
