|I moved this one into the newer Sequoia National Park area from the High Sierra, since it fits better here now IMHO. If you disagree no prob, just let me know and I'll put it back.|

Well I see that this area is to cover anything accessed from the west - this peak is accessed from the west.
However I don't agree with this as a driver, because many peaks can be accessed from both sides. The original intent of "High Sierra" was to include any peak in the range whether it was accessible from any compass point. Needless to say the system continues to move towards more and more complication and therefore a more complex hierarchy.
It appears I'm in the minority in trying to keep things simple, what could be simpler than clicking High Sierra, then a peak and then a route?
So, if you move this peak you're going to have to start moving all of the peaks in the park(s) which have a possible west side approach, Charlotte Dome for example.
It seems like we're moving to include the parks, Inyo, Ansel, etc. etc. Let's hope the people using MP know which park/area their peak is located within the range of the High Sierra.
It'll take lots of work - and I'm hoping that I'll continue to be an administrator and not orphaned out.
