The name “Prominencians Peak” was chosen for this unnamed summit to pay tribute to the concept of prominence and the unique band of folks around the world that wrap a part of their lives around it. The approach is the same as for Diamond Peak (6379'/P779), the Highest Point in Garfield County, WA .
A small amount of old surveyors wood and wire was weathering and rusting on top, but whether they helicoptered into this summit or climbed it legitimately is unknown.
This unusual descending climb completes for me the list of the Greatest Prominence Points in the 39 Counties of Washington (hopefully).
A long-winded personal story is available on request, and may later appear here.
