<400 means peak does not have 400 feet of clean prominence.
Peaks with the same elevation are ranked the same.
DUMBELL MOUNTAIN 8421' P1261
from NW on Martin. The high point is third from left of the four crown points. Railroad Creek below. Big Creek on left.
NE DUMBELL MOUNTAIN' 8415' P655
from SE. NE Dumbell is the sharpish peak right of the lowest central saddle. It is not green, and it is not wood. There was a recent thought that a 8400+ northern subsummit (the point right of NE Dumbell 8415 in photo) was higher . To settle this, on October 10, 2004, Fay Pullen took a sighting clinometer, "a quality surveying instrument" to 8415 and determined that it was "higher by about 1 degree" than the north point. Other summits in this photo are Genius Peak' on left (a Top 200 summit), and Dumbell Mountain, left center. Bonanza is being gobbled by a lenticular cloud on right.

He thought he had made the FA on Mount Fernow, which is across the Big Creek valley 2.6 miles away.

AZURITE PEAK 8400+ P1880
from South on Holliway Mountain. Mount Ballard on right. There are twin 8400+ summits on Azurite. The southern one is slightly higher. Is this the only Top 100 peak top that lies in three counties? Keith Wilson made it up Azurite in 1998 to complete the Bulger List.
