[1]  Devils Peak:  This peak is on Nature Conservancy property.  It is reachable by advance permit.  The benchmark (EW8071) indicates an elevation of 2470.  With the new datum the elevation should be 2474.  The earlier published elevation of 2475' is probably an interpolation of the 50' contour interval.

[3]  El Montañon:  This is the highest point of the eastern part of Santa Cruz Island, which belongs to the National Park Service.  The name appears on NPS maps but not the USGS 7.5" map.  A May 2004 visit by Richard Carey, Edward Earl, Andy Martin and Gerry Roach et. al. indicates that the 1800-1850' contour 500' to the NW of BM 1808 is the true high point.  They estimate the actual high point at 1813'.
