Based on older topos, remarks by the surveyors who placed the Ireteba Benchmark, and field observation with a hand level, this peak is higher than the benchmark peak and therefore the highest summit of the Ireteba Peaks massif. The 1537 meter spot elevation on the topographic map is not correct, and the true value is considerably higher.
