Prominence error

Just an FYI, the prominence listed on LOJ for the unranked peak below is off:

https://listsofjohn.com/peak/18803

It should be 102' rather than 22'.

possibly, unless the bump inside the other 9320' contour (no pt. elevation given) has been determined to be higher

Every peak profile page has a saddle map link, which in this case illustrates what Joe is pointing to since the southern point interpolates to 9340.
