    A couple points:

    LiDAR does NOT survey every single spot in a location. It is a series of points, and if there's a gap over the actual highpoint, it could result in an artificially low peak value....

    Call me cynical.

    1) They apparently proposed something similar last year (no solo climbs, have to have summited a 7000m peak). Seeing as this is a proposal (as was that...), I'm not getting my...

    I am sitting, once again shaking my head with amazement, and with a big smile on my face at your continuing accomplishments. Bravo!
