Errata, Glacier Peak


Glacier Peak. In an editorial comment introducing “The Ascent of Glacier Peak” by the late Thomas Riggs (A.A.J., VII, Jan. 1949, 160-64), the altitude of the mountain is listed as 10,436 ft. A letter from Robert R. Coats, of Cabin John, Md., points out that there are two Glacier Peaks in the Cascade Range of Washington, and that Riggs undoubtedly climbed the more northerly one, which is two miles S. of the international boundary and 8994 ft. high.
