Why isn't the elevation listed for this peak - 4960 ft? Ascended via the Phelps trail from Keene and had a beautiful basecamp at Bushnell falls. Periods of rain, sleet and lots of slop but the high, dark clouds provided an eerie backdrop for Mt Marcy and opened up for an occasional view east to Lake Champlain

and beyond. High, gusty winds on the summit. We must have been insane to descend via the Shorey shortcut in this kind of weather
