This month’s updates are as follows:
Two island summits were newly identified. These are I/SI-287 and I/SI-288.
Several summit names have been changed. W6/SC-074 is being replaced with W6/SC-461 (old and new summits both named " Chiquito Peak". The AZs are different, so please be sure to use the new position.).
Just a few new names here, also with an elevation tweak to W0C/SP-042.
Col information had not been provided for DL. I have examined (mostly) the Bayern Atlas mapping to determine prominence values and better to locate summit positions. This has resulted in adjustments to many summits.
Currently a minimum topographic prominence (Schartenhöhe) of 100m is applied to the DL summits list, but 27 of the active summits were determined not to qualify. These are being retired with this update. The summits are:
Some missing summits were found and are being added with this update:
Several of these are higher summits replacing retiring near neighbours outside of their activation zones.
The prominence analysis shows that the density of P150 summits is far in excess of the limit for derogation to P100 specified for application of general rule 3.5.1. It was therefore decided to bring DL into conformity with other SOTA associations and restrict the list to summits with at least 150m of prominence. We have agreed to suspend application of this change until the close of year 2024. Consequently a further 136 summits will no longer be valid for SOTA as of 2025-01-01.
DD1LD has stepped down as AM for DL, leaving the role currently vacant.
Some scoring changes were made to EA3.
F/AM-634 summit location has been refined.
