Missing Mountains
Hi Padodes,
just to answer your question on the third Sugarloaf and Camara Hill.
The basis for inclusion on the Mountainviews listing is that a summit must be 400m or above with a 30m drop (aka prominence) from the summit to qualify as a separate top.
The Sugarloaf looking at the Osi Trailmaster appears to have a prominence of 20 meters and Camara Hill approximately 7 meters. It could be argued that this is somewhat restrictive and could lead to places of interest not being listed. Mountainviews is however trying to move towards an approach that will allow users to create their own customised lists and noting places of interest which might not qualify on a pure height /prominence basis has been mentioned.
