After a closer look at my elevation data, I have to say that I don't think
it is possible to tell which of the three highest finds I listed yesterday
is the actual champion. A rudimentary error analysis gives probable ranges as:

   Aguas Caliente, 4510-4650 m
   Ngiangri, 4600-4650 m
   Barranca Blanca, 4400-4700 m

My gut feeling is that if somebody goes to good topo maps and plots these,
Ngiangri will win. But I don't know.
