Would it be possible to add Red Rock in San Francisco Bay?

Coordinates are 37.9290,-122.4309. It is located just south of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.

I know its humble, but it does meet the criteria of being named, and having at least one closed contour line (plus a benchmark!). :loj: Plus, you can brag that you climbed all the way from sea level to the summit! :-D

Even if the 172' climb is trifling, access adds an additional challenge. I kayaked to it, but if that sounds too easy, the more ambitious could swim. 8)

The feature class in geonames is 'Island', but close enough. Swim sounds scary to me - http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Large-cluster-of-great-whites-surprises-concerns-6587610.php
