/ Ojos del Salado now higher than Aconcagua?
Anyways, preliminary data from south America after the recent spate of earth movements round the Ring of Fire is that Ojos del Salado has risen and Aconcagua has sunk slightly, so it looks like Salado will be the new seven summit peak for South America.
Thing is, my mates daren't let on what they have found, as strictly speaking they shouldn't have been doing it. So is anyone in a position to confirm or deny this? I know some folks out there have access to satellite survey data, or contacts with the various geological services.
What's the date?
I thought it was worth a try...

I'm doing better of Facebook with my suggestion that folks go to the Ballachulish Spring Nuddy Dip, where folks go for a naked swim in Loch Leven.
If it is true that people are more likely to believe the lie they wish was true, expect a for-real UKC nudist swim sometime soon...
Has anyone ever noticed the number of country high points just over 5000, 4000 or 3000m? Hills seem to be important to national willy waving.

And to getting more peak fees. There are more than a few Karakoram and Himalayan peaks that are lower than their 'official' height but keeping them just over 7000 or 6500 or whatever ups the money they get.
