GPS measurements inside the 5320 contour. Connecting saddle is a labyrinth of ridges, furrows, and fins, that may well drop below the 5240 contour saddle, but measuring the exact col is a mess. Estimate rise to be over 100 feet from top boulder to saddle plain. Peak appears lower than the nearby tallest fins that are all upper class 5 towers and 90 degree walls. This is the only feature in the entire Fiery Furnace area that was broken sandstone into boulders that can be scrambled as class 3. Everything else is very technical in the area. There are two equivalent boulders at this peak. One is the rounded boulder where the circle is located The other is a micro -fin to the SE. Both are easily climbed. Either could be the HP.
