It is frequently gien as 3,350 m (10,990 ft), but mony soorces that support this concede that it is approximate. The coordinates gien, which are conseestent wi SRTM data, are frae a 2005 GPS survey. The elevation data are based on a LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) survey carried oot in Juin 2007, see Neri, M.; et al.
