three points within 1000 feet of the west county line (1,600+ ft)

See Dan Case's and my trip reports for the easy western approach. What is new here is my first trip to the circular 1600-foot contour whose center is 0.2 mile east of the county line. Inexplicably, I had missed this point on my previous visit.

From the northern area along the county line, we bushwhacked east past a low saddle, then climbed the very distinct bump that rose to a nice summit, with views to the north. This seemed higher than the area to the west, and may rival the liner highpoint to the south. GPS elevations for the different areas were inconclusive.

Note also that the northern area that straddles the county line has a tiny slice that crosses into Montgomery County. By standard counting conventions, the two portions of that area should be counted separately, which would give Montgomery County four areas, instead of three.
