California Thirteeners List
“Third Needle” Details
Officially fails because saddle depth is less than 300'
PEAK MARKERS CURRENTLY BROKEN - SORRY!
Unfortunately, Google Maps decided to discontinue support for v2 of their API, which has resulted in the peak markers disappearing from my topographic maps. I'm working on a solution now and hope to have this fixed within a few weeks.

The following interactive map is initially centered on the target summit (“Third Needle”), but may be scrolled around by simply grabbing hold of the map image with the mouse and dragging.
